Mynx & darkEcho
Mynx began her journey into kink 5 years ago and continues with a dynamic evolution of personal accountability and self discovery. Through her own personal journey she strives to fully develop her relationships, deepen connections and delve into the core of her partner’s psyche. While engaging in a wide variety of play, she has a true affection and love of rope. She has attended workshops offered by many talented riggers and is most influenced by Wykd Dave and Akira Naka. She is dedicated to her own path of learning and has a spirited charm to share her passion for rope. Mynx is an enthusiastic rope top with a passion for giving rope. She passionately supports the concept of muscle memory and believes in the concept of tying along with her. She has extensive background in the medical profession as nurse anesthetist as well as teaching group fitness, and is a 500-RYT certified yogi and continues to travel her yogic path.
Chloe began her journey into kink when she joined the Baltimore community in early 2015. She has been fortunate enough to learn from, work, and play with skilled bottoms and tops from around the world who have been influential in her growth and development. While she enjoys many different types of play, she has developed a passion for rope bottoming and sharing her knowledge with others.
Chloe identifies as a masochist and has a deep love for semenawa. To her, the most spectacular part of rope is the amount of trust and skill required by both the bottom and the top. She believes memorable rope experiences are based on a sound connection between the individuals in a tying pair.
Chloe has been bottoming for Mynx since June, 2016. She has since come to adore the grace, beauty, and disfigurement that comes from the honesty and vulnerability provoked by rope bondage.
The Finish: Each Rope Tells a Story
Time & Date
A common practice is to join rope when more is needed and continue on. Or what do we do with the extra rope when the tie is finished. We burn it! But what if each rope was finished off and told it’s own story? But how do we do it effectively so the tie is functional, and maintains visual appeal?
Solid understanding of basic bondage, and simple forms Accoutrement: 5-7 lengths of 7m, 8m, or 30ft rope
Exploring Semenawa through Suspension
Time & Date
In this class we will begin with the Gote as developed by Naka Akira. We will then continue to add rope, layering and escalating intensity to further explore the artful building of rope torture, otherwise known as semenawa. Learning to pay close attention to detail of rope technique, body language, facial expression, and breathing patterns of the bottom will become indicators of escalation as well as descent.
A solid 3 rope Gote and experience in transitional suspension; bottoms should have experience in static suspensions, at a minimum Accoutrement: A suspension worthy kit Instructor needs: Single suspension point
Top & Bottom Focused
Transitional Partial Suspensions - 3.0

A NEW TRANSITION SERIES for 2019. We will explore the beauty of suffering through partial suspensions.
