Event Details

How do we move our bodies? And how can we best take care of our bodies when tying or being tied?

Finding the keys to playing with rope with another person requires focusing on the physical nature of the rope and how our bodies can be best supported, moved, opened up and cared for whilst tying with each other.

Caritia will guide participants to find out more about their body movements, cues for spotting limits and tying with partners who are present with their bodies.

We recommend repeating topical classes from time to time until you have accumulated the nuance of that class and then joining other beginner classes to go further.

Who is this event for?

LGBTQIA+ describes the full spectrum of non-mainstream sexual orientation and/or gender identity, meaning: lesbian, gay, bisexual, pansexual, transgender, non-binary, genderqueer/fluid,

Friends describes people of any and all kinds of gender and sexual identities who are aware and respectful of the necessity, needs, and boundaries of a queer safe(r) space and its marginalized community.

When you consider yourself a friend you show acknowledgement to and are respectful of everyone’s self-expression and do not assume, presume or project non-consensual ideas onto others. You actively request and use people’s chosen pronouns. You remain mindful of the fact that Karada House is first and foremost a space for queer people that you are also invited to attend. You have a genuine concern for the well-being of LGBTQIA+ people and remain in awareness of heterosexual and gender straight privileges.

Friends don’t have to be perfect. None of us are. We request that we all pro-actively work and strive to be good friends and allies to marginalized people.
