The Full Moon Steam Medley is back, Twin Cities!


After a long COVID-induced hiatus, we’re offering guided sauna experiences on the Hewing Hotel’s magnificent rooftop terrace. 

The format of the Full Moon Steam Medley is based off the German Aufguss tradition where a host (or Saunameister) gradually increases the intensity of the experience by adding steam to the rocks.

During the cool-down rounds, you have the opportunity to use the cold plunge, rehydrate, sample essential oils, and enjoy a spectacular view of the Minneapolis skyline from the pool.

Hewing Hotel Rooftop Sauna & Pool

Stokeyard Outfitters has been proudly programming the Hewing Hotel’s spacious and elegant rooftop sauna since 2017.

Ideal for guided sauna experiences, steam aromatherapy treatments, and meditation retreats, Stokeyard Outfitters has established the best Thermaculture experience available in the Twin Cities.

Hewing’s architecturally designed rooftop also features a heated pool and epic views of the Minneapolis skyline and Mississippi River. Join us for a thermic bathing experience you will never forget.

Important Guest Information

The evening’s program is comprised of 3 rounds. Each round is a roughly 10–15-minute guided sauna steam aromatherapy followed by a 10-15 minute cool-down session.

During the cool-down rounds, you have the opportunity to use the cold plunge, rehydrate, sample essential oils, and enjoy a spectacular view of the Minneapolis skyline from the pool.
