BEGINNERS GUIDED - A class series by Pauline Massimo

Class series oriented for beginners & folks looking for new beginnings in Shibari. 

Pauline curated a unique way of teaching online that goes beyond a follow-up tutorial style but focuses more on a warmer, personalized, and adaptative program where a guided progressive process will be the focus.

In those class series, you will not only learn new things but as well build together a safer space to grow and share with Pauline and other participants.

The structure:

Pauline offers 4 class series, each class is divided into two parts per week, making the 3 hours a week more digestible and giving more time in between to practice and progress with Pauline's guidance.

The program:

First steps -> Learn the basic technical skills of rigging and bottoming intentionality and body reception, and all theoretical concepts from history to safer practice methods.

Monday 7th & Wednesday 9th from 22:00 to 23:30 CET

Build it together -> Understanding anatomy, and discover personal tastes while creating the first harness structures specifically designed for the body and mind being tied up. Technical exercises on structures and decision-making.

Monday 14th & Wednesday 16th from 22:00 to 23:30 CET

Discovery & Joy -> Practical exercises and joyful plays from what you know to what you can build even further together, learn how to create your own collaborative rope session from scratch.

Monday 21st & Wednesday 23rd from 22:00 to 23:30 CET

Closer look -> Polishing technique and body mechanics, revisiting concepts and theory, troubleshooting, how to give and receive feedback in ropes, universal tips&tricks, general feedback, and questions before closing the cycle.

Monday 28th & Wednesday 30th from 22:00 to 23:30 CET

Recording and live attendance:

While recording will be available during the whole weeks of classes, an additional 30 days after the last class ends will be 

available to watch and rewatch as many times as each student needs in this period.

However, Pauline advises to not miss the live classes as the structure of this series is designed and intended for a co-creating process together based on the live participation and between classes feedback and requests.

More than one live class participation will be inconvenient and discouraged, we recommend at least one of the pair participants come to the live class to discuss, ask questions, petition, and give feedback. But even further, transmit to their missing partner the essence of the class that day to work together on their own practice and non-guided exercises at home.

Reservation possibilities:

If you wish to join individual classes, please choose the "one class" price, and in case of wanting to do more than one class, just add to the basket how many sessions you will join. Once filling out the form, please add to the indicated box the title of the classes you want to join so we can send you the exclusive access to the live and recorded class.

Please take in mind that one class is divided into two days, so you must attend the first one on Monday and the second one on Wednesday.

If you are interested in attending the whole series, which we designed and highly recommend, there is a special offer price only available for the whole program until right before starts the first class of this series.

After this time, the special price will not be available anymore and you can buy individual access for each class.


Those classes, like most classes by Pauline, are completely designed and oriented to fulfill the needs of every role in Shibari: riggers (who ties), bottoms/models (who are tied up), and selfies, but also people with interest in switching between different roles.

The class program and discussions will have specific mentions for each role when necessary so nobody is left behind.

You can attend this class solo as a self-tier and as a pair.

Live hosting:

The classes will happen live on a Livestream of Learn Shibari website unless we contact you with different information before the class happens.

The recorded classes will be hosted on the Learn Shibari website and for those who attend the whole program there will be available a HUB page separated from single classes access for those who got individual class access.

The whole information will be sent out via email.

About the teacher:

Pauline Massimo, Brazilian-born and based in Barcelona, is an interdisciplinary artist who researches intensively with Shibari for over 10 years, body expression, movement study, performance, and photography. They are the co-founder of Learn Shibari and Espacio Nos (Barcelona), who study and work on building a heterarchical local community focusing on LGBTQIA+, femmes/women, neurodiverse, and socio-economically marginalized collectives with a strong base on radical politics in its building.

Pauline's evolution in ropes/Shibari has been not only intense but interchanging with different experiences of tying, being tied up, and self-tying over the years, a constant study and learning process with others, as well as sharing their knowledge and opportunities to erase gaps as much as possible when it comes to education and accessibility for ropes and more.

If you have questions, needs, and requests, please contact us via email or through the contact form.
