EVENT DETAILS

Intro to full suspension (2 hours and a half)

When buying a ticket for this class you will have access to the live class and class recording.

What you will learn:

Pauline will guide students through their process of entering full suspensions. As Shibari is a dangerous practice that is done poorly, with little knowledge and little care from both parties, it can get even more dangerous with full suspensions as we add more the element of gravity on this play, a small mistake can be terrifying.

In this introductory workshop, Pauline firstly will go throw several safety aspects needed to take into account while starting into full suspensions, then they will show first exercises to work on before starting to suspend someone or oneself, and lastly, they will show two examples of suspensions to start off and to progressively dip into creating beautiful shapes, leaving room for creativity and a steady base for riggers suspending.

Requisites:

• This class is intended for all levels above total beginners to play and apply accordingly to each person's skills and interests. However, students who wish to practice the partial exercises should be able to know well and work with uplines and tie their harnesses well, as safe as possible and comfortably on their models. And models should have a minimum experience being tied up as well be able to identify and communicate signs related to nerve injury and other types of injuries/negative feelings to their riggers and know a good minimum of their limits and boundaries.

***If you don't have that base yet, please check our previous workshops that teach those bases ("flow and floor work"  and "introduction to uplines") and we highly recommend you get this class in combination with our previous workshop happening on 14th November (on "Partial Flow Suspension")

• You will need your own ropes and safety cutting tool.

• You might need at minimum 4 natural ropes (jute or hemp) for practising the most basic exercises, and up to as many as you need for more complex exercises. Ideally 6-8 pieces of rope.
