ShesANatural & Conroy

It Takes Two: Working Together as a Long Term Tying Pair

Time & Date

TBD

They say that two minds are better than one. Conroy and ShesANatural’s rope journey began 5 years ago. They have made a lot of mistakes and they have grown along the way. Realizing that 1) labbing 2) scenes and 3) creating/collaborating are three distinctly different sessions and atmospheres that add to the growth and connection to their long term tying partnership. They would like to share ideas on what these three different sessions look like and hopefully spark something that speaks to you. Conroy and ShesANatural will demo a bottom directed suspension sequence where Conroy collaborates with ShesANatural as she curates the next transition or change or position. This class will not be teaching pattern ties to the tops.

Suspensions experience and a working knowledge of proper upline tie offs. 10+ hanks of suspension worthy rope and suspension supplies. Ties and upline proficiency will be assessed by the presenters prior to allowing suspensions for the safety of the attendees. If ties do not fall within the risk profile of the presenters, attendee may be asked to audit that portion. Hard point needed for demo and attendee participation - Rope category - 10 tying pairs / no audit attendee limit

Sweet Surrender: Rope bondage for endurance suffering

Time & Date

TBD

When in a relationship with an alpha bottom, the power struggle is real. They have found that endurance suffering is an experience that deepens their connection, their relationship and reaffirms their total power exchange dynamic. They will talk about their own experiences with the choice to “give up” or reaching the “breaking point” and how that differs from “tapping out” or making the call to not be able to continue. A demo of what an endurance suffering session would look like with open communication throughout so that you can get a sense of what might be experienced and felt. After the demo, they will talk about the differences of how they describe themselves before and after the session. 90+ minute discussion, demo and hands-on.

A working knowledge of suspension worthy chest harness, upline tie offs. 8+ hanks of suspension worth rope and suspension supplies. Ties and upline proficiency will be assessed by the presenters prior to allowing suspensions for the safety of the attendees. If ties do not fall within the risk profile of the presenters, attendee may be asked to audit that portion. Hard point needed for demo and attendee participation - Rope and Relationship categories - 10 tying pairs / no audit attendee limit

The EuphoRion Harness

Time & Date

TBD

In Greek mythology, Euphorion was the child of Achilles and Helen. Achilles being the strongest warrior and Helen being the most beautiful woman. The EuphoRion Harness is a blend of an arms in takate kote and an arms out chest harness. EuphoRion brings together some of the strengths of a takate kote and some of the beauty of a chest harness. This hybrid harness was created for ShesANatural’s partner Rion, when they discovered the desire for a chest harness that worked well in torsion but did not impose on the nerves in the lower part of the upper arm. Unlike other arms out chest harnesses, the EuphoRion allows for upper body torsion without the ropes spinning on the upper body. And it allows for less pressure on the shoulders and less nerve impingement on the upper arm. This harness can be used for floor work, partials and suspensions.

A working knowledge of a non collapsing single column tie, frictions and knots. Working knowledge of a takate kote is helpful. 3+ hanks of rope - Rope category - no attendee limit

Caught in the Balance: Agura variants

Time & Date

TBD

In this class, you will have the opportunity to thoroughly understand the singular elements that make up ShesANatural's version of the Agura tie, from the logistics and reasons behind each step as well as how it all balances on the body. Time permitting, several variations of the tie will be demonstrated and explained.

A working knowledge of a non collapsing single column tie, frictions and knots. 4+ hanks of rope - Rope category - no attendee limit
