The nation’s first community-owned mobile sauna… coming to a hot spot near you!


The New 612… Sauna

We’re using everything we’ve learned at hundreds of gatherings at The Firehouse Sauna and Little Box Sauna to build our next and best mobile sauna hot spot. The build campaign will be lead by the most experienced sauna builder in the country, Glenn Auerbach, founder of and proud creator of dozens of the finest saunas in the country. He will be supported by 612 Sauna Society Founder John Pederson and a team of 40 volunteers. Supervising this cadre of sauna steam will be Michael Gordon (AWH Architects and Lazor office) and Max Musicant (The Musicant Group).

The design of the new sauna centers around the elemental aspects of a transformative sauna experience. 

Flame Heat
Flame-heated saunas feel better because they produce more radiant heat than electric and because the flame creates natural circulation of air in the hot room. But don’t take my word for it, take Glenn’s.
Optimized for Health
The cool-down is the most under-rated and critical aspect of the sauna experience. The cool-down rounds activate the full health benefit of sauna. Cooling down your core—not just your skin—between sauna rounds triggers your thermoregulatory system into to bring your body into equilibrium by circulating blood flow to heat and cool your core temperature. Our space is optimized for full cool-down rounds with multiple cool-down zones.
Flow for Sauna Rounds
The drop-deck trailer design eliminates the need for stairs, improving safety, comfort and flow between the hot room, bonfire deck and cool-down tent.

An Urban oasis during the coldest months of the year…

There’s nothing quite like seeing your own backyard for the first time through the glow of a sauna round. By building the new sauna on wheels, the city becomes our backyard. We’ll re-introduce the citizens of these Twin Cities to the magic of sauna—and winter—one sauna round at a time!
