The Banya & Parenie (AKA being whipped with birch & oak leaves!)
Manage episode 349576519 series 2908190
In what might be the strangest practice the ladies have ever tested in the history of the show, Lauren and Nicole put on swimwear and some little felt hats and take a trip to the Banya - a Russian bathhouse ,where they experience the sauna, the icy plunge pool and Parenie ; a traditional and invigorating thermal treatment which involves leafy and fragrant bundles of birch, oak or eucalyptus twigs (called venik) being brushed - or rather walloped all over your body in a steam room. You won't want to miss listening in to how they got on.
Thanks to Banya No.1 in Chiswick for gifting us the experience.
