Torsion suspensions (suspensions in twisted body positions) offer exciting ways to expand your range of spatial-aesthetic options and sensory experiences in the air. Twisting your suspensions can create intense experiences and change up your suspension repertoire. In this workshop, we will address the physical components and body mechanics of torsion (torso twisting) in suspension. We will cover a variety of torsion suspension transitions, including particular suspension techniques and line management techniques for transitioning into and out of torsion positions. These topics are addressed from both bottoms’ and tops’ perspectives, with emphasis on choosing and adjusting transitions to work best for individual bodies.
This is an intermediate to advance suspension bondage class. This class is limited to 10 tying pairs.
This workshop will be held in the basement of Gallery Erato, which is accessible only by stairs.
All sexes, genders, ethnicities, sexual orientations, relationship orientations welcome and celebrated.
No late entry will be allowed due to the intensive nature of this workshop. Doors will be locked at 10 minutes after the start time.
Open to all 18+
