Event Details

For switch – basic level to curious advanced people

Looking for a place for your summer holidays? What about Brussels? A mild temperature, many parks and forests surrounding a beautiful city, waffels and fries, and many activities including…. 5 days of Kinbaku practice!

I invite you to discover my style of doing ropes from the basics. Every day from 1pm to 7pm, we will build from floor work to side suspension, exploring how I tie people but not only.

In a workshop format closer to dance than classical Kinbaku, we will include some body maintenance (Stretching, warm up, contact improvisation exercises) and some massage. Attended will also be welcome to switch and meet other people. For people not comfortable with this last point, you are perfectly welcome to only work with the partner you came with.

I will myself not have a dedicated model. And I will therefore rely on people attending and willing to help me present the exercises.

What are we going to do in rope ?

  • Manipulating the body with one rope
  • Controling the body with one rope
  • Creating a scene, a play
  • Developing bottoming knowledge and experience as well as topping one
  • Studying some basic pattern : Gote, Mae, Gyaku ashi, Hishi, enzo…
  • Creative semi suspension
  • Studying the Yoko-Tsuri (side suspension) in many of its forms
  • Group exercises
  • Moving in the space.
  • But also they will be some reminders of security.

We do not aim at a bootcamp rhythm/philosophy. We aim at sharing time to explore the exercises I will offer you.

Usual rules of our workshops apply here, with the noted exception that partial nudity will be possible during all exercises (brief/panty/boxer on).
