About Mindheart Saunas

Our Story

Founded and operated by Austrian Hardy Heiser, Mindheart Saunas was inspired by the benefits of steam saunas when he trained for the European skiing championships in Lahti, Finland. Health and wellbeing have been strongly associated with regular steam sauna sessions among the locals on the ski jumps.

Hardy moved from Dornbirn, Austria to New Zealand’s North Island in 1988. As a sauna enthusiast, the move created some culture shock, but nothing compared to the surprise of discovering that saunas, in the traditional sense, were virtually unknown in this new country. ‘Saunas’ are correctly referred to as baths in which dry heat and steam are applied to the entire body. In New Zealand, however, the term ‘sauna’ was used extensively to describe anything related to spas, baths or exclusively applied to leisure establishments with swimming pools located near obscure signs close to the ‘spa’ area.

Hardy knew right away that he wanted to introduce the wonderful world of sauna culture to New Zealand, hoping that by spreading knowledge and educating others, the popularity of saunas would increase and its amazing benefits would reach a wider audience. Its benefits for purifying, healing and relaxing the body and mind have made it as popular as ever in New Zealand’s therapeutic communities. With dry heat, sweat glands open and pores are cleansed and rejuvenated, then deeply relaxed within all body parts to produce a calming picture of health from the outside in.
