THE BODY IN ROPES (PART II)
This is the second part of “The body in ropes” blog post reflection.
First part HERE.
Shibari is an practice that requieres some physical effort.
Sometimes a lot, sometimes less from both sides.
When I tie, you have no idea how much energy and intensity I can put in each session.
The emotional effort is huge too, how can I never burnout?
Well, I burnout sometimes, but is very rare, really rare.
Not because of the physical effort I might put on, but mostly because of the emotional charges.
I feel myself very strong emotionally and I do like connect with people in that way.
However I do not express my emotions while doing Shibari on a conventional way.
This is maybe, the reason why I don’t burnout almost never.
Taking in account that almost any person I tie up on a rope bondage session, they will taller or/and heavier than me. I can bet you!
This requieres for me a lot more physical effort and of course, more emotional charges, while tying.
I can tell you that I use science to do Shibari on my own way.
For example: I know some tricks and have knowledge about how to make a body run more or less some hormones like endorphins and adrenaline. I know how to play with physics regrind my transitions while doing an dynamic suspension. I can also use science to make visual illusions like for example make someone look more bending or give give a sensation of floating and effortless moments and movements.
I believe that knowledge is the key to power. If you use the knowledge in your hands to make something better for yourself, for others and efficient, I would go 100% on it.
You can do that too if you want, it’s in your “hand” (mind and body).
