On Saturday June 23, from 10:00 to noon, join pandoradreams as she instructs Agura Torsion Suspension at Denver Rope Bite's NEW VENUE - Studio Friction!
The Agura is a beautiful, cross legged tie that can be used, on the ground, to compress your partner and force some degree of compression on their breath. When taking the Agura into suspension, adjustments must be made to ensure a safe and aesthetically pleasing tie. In this class, pandoradreams will instruct a static suspension that uses the Agura (cross legged) position in a torsion pose (an example of this tie can be seen here). Instruction will be given on the patterns of the tie, adjustments to make the tie more/less stressful for the bottom, as well as safety and anatomical considerations to keep in mind while performing torsion.
An open lab will follow from noon-1:00pm to practice what you've learned.
The static suspension is geared towards advanced students with knowledge and experience with static suspensions. The Agura tie, kept on the ground, can be tied by intermediate students. Please do not tie past your skill level.
Prerequisites for those wishing to complete the suspension exercise: suspension worthy 2 or 3 rope TK, knowledge of suspension line management, single column tie, and knowledge of solid tension. Please bring 8 lengths of 25-30' rope, carabiners, and a suspension ring/plate/etc.
