Curious about the world of Conscious Kink and Tantric BDSM?
Shibari is one of the most versatile mediums to explore the art of surrender, devotional domination, sensory play and erotic energetic communication.
This artform has taken off around the world in the recent years for it's power to facilitate intimacy, explore polarity and provide some deeply embodied experiences of connection and release.
It's also a great place to learn conscious communication, space holding and explore forms of intimacy that don't need to include genital stimulation.
And if you're kinky inclined, it's a space to play with power dynamics, pleasure and pain in a beautiful way. It can envelop so many parts of BDSM depending on how you decide to play.
Really, rope can be a lot of things... it's a tool that can be nothing or everything depending on your intention.
Get a feel for the course with this little preview video of the Rope Rituals we create in this course. This is a basic overview and we'll go much more in depth inside the course
The Sensual Ropes online course is created to give you a comprehensive beginners education around Shibari/Kinbaku and Conscious Kink so that you can create beautiful intimate rope experiences with lovers and friends.
I created this course after exploring Shibari for over 6 years and finding my own style through learning with various teachers- both traditional Shibari styles and contemporary. I often found a lot of workshops and tutorials focused on the ties and patterns- an important part of the skill but not necessarily the most important part if your goal is to create a deep and intimate experience. This course combines my years of exploring various styles and modalities, combined with my work in tantra and conscious sexuality.
Communication, consent and creating a safe container for exploration are key focuses in my teaching as I have found this to be one of the most important parts of having a really powerful experience. Through shibari we can learn how to speak our desires, boundaries and even learn the subtleties of non-verbal communication and reading body language. I include trauma-awareness and a lot of safety information in my course because I find that almost everyone has some degree of trauma around intimacy and sexuality, some more than others. I wanted to create a course that covered a strong foundation of rope skills, communication skills, sensual play and emotional depth, and after teaching a lot of Sensual Rope Temple workshops around the world I decided to develop this online version so that no matter where you are in the world you can learn!
This whole course is floor-based Shibari and designed for people who want to tie from a sensual perspective. There are a lot of ways to explore rope- some more technical and traditional, some more kinky and sadomasochistic, some more playful, some more artistic- this is one perspective that I specialize in. With this foundation you can also explore different styles and take your education further to things like suspension work and intricate designs, and I think having a good base of knowledge that includes how to create a safe and deep scene will serve any rope-lover no matter what style they use.
Get all the foundations you need to know before you even pick up the rope! Here we cover some foundations of communication and intention so that you can move into your rope journey with confidence.
Includes: History, safety, communication, check-ins, empowered submission, embodied yes/no
In this section we start to get to the rope... what type of rope you'll need, how to connect with it, how to move people and important information on check-ins and aftercare.

You don't need a partner to get started! Here I'll give you a heap of practices that you can do on yourself. Getting the knots and techniques mastered takes time, and we don't always have someone around to practice on, so here I give some ways to play on yourself!
