open shibari training april

April: Tuesday 3,10,17,24, 2018, 10-12am

This new class is open to all levels of Shibari/Kinbaku. Its an open training space.
Because tying is needs repetition. To become firm in guiding a partner through a rope session there are many skills to practice. Also the model makes an in depth learning process.
The first hour of the workshop we do q&a and I will answer specific technical question. For example if you always wanted to clarify for example how to secure suspension lines, repeat TK or go through the basics. For new input, I will demo one classical, more advanced figure. The second hour is devoted to your own training.

advanced kinbaku lab in february

Tuesday mornings, February: 6,13,20,27, 2018
Hours: 10am–12am

This weekly class/lab focusses on kinbaku at intermediate-advanced level.

Most participants attend regularly so topics can progressively build. Starting with a power warm up and demo of my current material, I give individual feedback as you are tying. The material contains floor work, dynamic rope play, and half- or full suspension. We often research torsion-sequences or more complex transitions in the air. Its an environment to meet new styles and rope philosophies, and if you like to share your latest invention feel welcome to throw in ideas :)

My approach melts different styles and teachings for more than 10 years. As rigger I started of with Osada Steve, Arisue Go, Kamijoo Saki, Frances d’Ath, Barkas and Kinoko. As model I learned with and am inspired by Kasumi Horai, Iroha Shizuki, Akira Naka and Tamandua.

Haus Sommer is a small dojo located in Uferhallen Kulturwerkstatt in Berlin-Wedding, with 7 suspension-points, bamboo suspension, dance floor, and tea kitchen. Please bring comfortable clothes and ropes if you have.

If you are a beginner and still want to participate, its possible as a model.
(There is a new beginner class in the evening!)
With previous experience you can drop in spontaneously. Please send a short message to  +49 174 393 70 49.

Kinbaku and Sex

When: October 22. 2017
From 1 – 7pm
Costs: 150 €

This workshop is about tying for arousal and how to combine shibari and sex.

We will manage both practical and psychological aspects surrounding the topic of sex and shibari. The ties taught during this class are not only chosen out of practical reasons but also with the intention of being erotically interesting in themselves. In other words, this is not just a workshop about “bondage that is easy to fuck your partner in” but the idea is to cater also to those with a sexual interest in the rope play in itself. Apart from going through some specific ties we will talk about different approaches to sex in kinbaku and how one can build up an arousing session. An example is how the aesthetics of the tie play part in attraction and setting the tone of the scene.

Bio:
Dasniya and Tamandua like to explore poetic extremes with ropes. While their background in kinbaku differs a lot they both share a strong interest for the aesthetically creative and emotionally ambiguous side of the practice.
Tamandua is rigger with a wide variety of influences. His style draws heavily on erotically tormenting rope to create visually and emotionally alluring scenes.
Dasniya has done a lot of work and research connecting shibari with fields such as dance and performing arts. She is especially fascinated by the dramatic potential and playful complexity of kinbaku.

**6 hour workshop with room for 4 couples only! **

For registration:
Participants have to register in couples. To make the most out of the workshop you should sign up with a partner whom you are comfortable doing intimate type of rope play with. Riggers need prior experience in shibari/kinbaku. Not all content but some ties will require basic knowledge about suspension to be able to follow.
