Content of Lessons
The lessons are structured according to skill set and are available to:-
Beginners / Intermediates / Advanced / Performers
The teaching content will be defined after initial consultation. This will vary according to the learning intent and can include:-
- Basic Japanese rope study
- Advanced Japanese rope study
- Rope simply for a couple’s pleasure and play
- Tantric connection (Exploring one’s Masculine and Feminine energy)
A lesson will be tailored to your skill set. You will learn the basics and safety. If you are more experienced, Avalon teaches suspension 1-1. Not only will you learn the technical engineering of how to tie but you will also get to explore why you tie and the deeper philosophy behind it.
Shibari is like learning an instrument. The learning and mastery of the art never ends which is exciting as there is always something new to apply and appreciate.
For Avalon rope is NEVER about applying a pattern to a body but tying exactly for what the person needs. It’s an honour for someone to allow you to tie them and that trust must never be broken.
PLEASE NOTE: This is not a sexual service. The experience may be sensual or erotic, however there is no genital contact and no complete nudity.
