The plan for the workshop is:

Friday evening:
Solid stem takate kote + third rope
Friday evening workshop is suitable for all levels
Materials required: 4 lengths of rope.

Saturday and Sunday:
This workshop is aimed at giving students thorough groundwork for working with suspensions, working with the body, and developing good communication between tying partners.
We will explore body movement and mechanics on the floor, in partial suspension, and in the air.
We will be using the takate kote from Friday night several times throughout the weekend learning how to make modifications to the tie for various different suspensions. We will look at suspension positions including face up, face down, side suspension and running person with the intention of working with your partner to understand how the body reacts within each position.
We will use partial suspensions to further understand body mechanics, and also to give students a range of options for more playful rope.
We will explore alternative options for models who struggle with the takate kote position, including hands free hishi harness, and alternative hand positioning.
Workshop suitable for those that already have some experience with suspensions
Materials required: 8 – 10 lengths of rope (if the venue does not have the possibility of suspending from bamboo, students will also need to bring approx. 6 carabiners and/or a suspension ring).

My approach to shibari has evolved as the result of over a decade of practice on both sides of the ropes and a broad range of influences which I appropriate, mix and develop in my own practice. This has shaped my teaching style into one that seeks to reflect the experience of both tying partners on a deep level. I have a strong belief that shibari should not be prescriptive and encourage students to explore it as a flexible set of tools; adapting each tie to the body of the tied partner, and to their needs and desires within each individual situation. My teaching process aims to enable this by giving students a framework of the fundamental principles behind shibari; including safety efficiency and fluency, but also body awareness, communication, and conscious consideration of their own experiences and motivations.
