Elements of Suspension Harness — Shibari Essentials

Diving into your Shibari journey.

Breaking down the elements of upper body harness for suspension.

Description

This class is designed for those are doing or aiming to do suspension.

Every body is different, and one harness doesn't fit all. In this class, we will break down some of the commonly used upper body harnesses for suspension, analysis the elements of "what made this work, and what doesn't", pros & cons of each element.

We hope to start the discussion for designing & building suspension harness for each bottom individually.

We are not here to teach a specific harness.

Advance warning from Mooooo: I am still a student myself, and I always will be. The content is heavily based on my own tying and learning experiences. My aim is to share what I discovered in my journey, and start the conversation of customising ties for individual rope bottoms.

To get the most out of this class, you will have to...

  • Have knowledge of safety & risk of rope suspension
  • Familiar with basic column ties & common friction
  • Comfortable with your rope handling skill and able to manage various tension
  • Know a suspension upper body harness that works for you & your bottom

If you are working toward suspension but not feel quite comfortable yet, you are welcome to audit the class. You will not have a suspension spot to practice, but you can still bring a bottom to tie with on the ground.

What do you need to bring?

  • 5 x 30ft rope (but feel free to bring more!)
  • Synthetic rope for upline if that is within your practice
  • You & your bottom's aftercare needs.

The host will also provide yoga mat to tie on, snacks and water.

Common Q&A

  1. Do I need to bring my own rope?

The host will provide jutes for everyone to use. However, it is strongly advised to bring your own ropes.

  1. Do I need a rope bottom?

Yes. You will need a rope bottom to practice with. If you are a switch, pair up with your switch-y friends! You learn the most if you could experience both sides!

  1. What should I wear?

For Riggers: Anything you feel the most comfortable in. You will feel
warmer than your bottom, so don't put too many layers on!

For bottoms: Tighter clothes are the best. For example: tank tops and yoga pants. If you wear bras, please remember to take them off or wear wireless bras for upper body ties.

  1. Will I be able to learn to suspend someone?

We will attach an upline to the harness. We will ask the bottom to suspend themselves by lifting their legs if they feel comfortable.

If you had prior experience with suspension, you may fully suspend your bottom if that is within your practice.
