Sauna in Spain
Cristina is the managing director of Saunabrick and she wants to combine the best parts of Finnish and Spanish cultures. She wants everybody to enjoy their lives, for example by bringing together elements of the Finnish sauna, which is good for the body and mind, and of the excellent and healthy Mediterranean food culture with its delicacies, such as olive oil, fresh tomatoes, etc.
Cristina tells that many Spanish people think that sauna is for losing weight. Some people know that you go to sauna after sports, but not so many people know that sauna is very much about relaxation, about body and mind. However, she sees that more and more people get interested in saunas.
“Sauna from Finland membership has given Saunabrick a lot. We’ve have learnt a lot about the Finnish sauna culture and Finnish culture in general. We’ve built a lot of new contacts as well.”
Cristina says that besides being able to serve their customers better, she feels that the key thing is to be happy in what she is doing in her work.
Saunabrick have plans to expand their activities. Cristina would also like to have a place for different kinds of saunas, for example, a pop-up sauna village.
