In this bonus scene from the Perfect Sweat series, learn about the fusion of sweat-bathing practices at Inipi Sauna Gus in Copenhagen, Denmark.
Inipi Sauna Gus is a sauna and sweat lodge in Amager Strandpark, and was inspired by the practices and beliefs of the Lakota, or Teton/Western Sioux, a Native American tribe, among other influences. "Inipi" - pronounced "ee-nee-pee" - is a Lakota term for “sweat lodge” that also means "to live again". In Lakota tradition, those looking for a spiritual rebirth or guidance in an upcoming journey would undergo a purification process for humility, strength and power.
