Description

Rope is an inherently dangerous activity and comes with a lot of risk that many newer folks are not aware of. Nerves are a key factor to consider, and in this class, we will go over some of the major nerves to be aware of and how injuries might show up. Safety is of paramount importance in any rope or kink practice, and we take this responsibility seriously. Informed consent is a core tenant to developing your own risk profile, and this class will give you a base to start better understanding and communicating your own risk profile.

The second half of class will focus on the features of rope. We will explore different types of rope and thier uses, some ways you can care and store rope, and other techincal aspects. These elements will build into rope handling and some intention when working with rope, which will be hands on and exploratory.

We have modified our cumulative intro to shibari cumulative curriculum for in-person learning without the pressure of having to attend every class. All of our core curriculum classes have a different topic that pulls elements from previous classes, but require no prerequisites for any individual class. Come to one, a few, or all!

These classes are built to be accessible to absolute beginners, but there is something to learn for all skill levels in each class of the Bael Series. We provide technical challenges where applicable for more intermediate students and we strongly believe that having a beginner mindset is crucial to being safe and successful in rope. Our discussion and theory heavy classes are also always changing as the scene changes and we learn and grow as teachers and practitioners ourselves!

You do NOT need a partner for this class, all of the material will be demonstrated and adapted for self-tying. We will aim to provide multiple ways to achieve each tie to account for differences in bodies, mobility, and general accessibility as best we can. Please let us know if there is anything else we can do to support you.

Due to these accommodations and the hands-on nature of our teaching style, we have very limited capacity on our classes. Tickets are available at the door if we are not sold out on this page already.
