Part of our Core Curriculum: Our beginning suspension track with GRENDEL
This event will take place at The Rope Collective Studio in Barrio Logan, San Diego.
Building on the Collective's Floorwork and Partial Suspension education track, the Beginning Suspension track is designed to allow a tying pair to finally come fully off the ground. During class we will evaluate the risks associated with suspension and discuss ways to mitigate or reduce them in order to enhance the safety around suspension. We will talk through various best practices when it comes to handling uplines, hard points, and associated hardware. And instructors will supervise preliminary suspension lifts for those tying pairs which demonstrate readiness during class.
Prerequisites: completion of floorwork series, single column tie, suspendable chest harness, suspendable hip harness
Strongly recommend that students complete both Floorwork and Partial Suspension series of classes prior to attending the Beginning Suspension track.
RECOMMENDED ITEMS TO BRING:
Wear clothing that allows you to feel comfortable, empowered or expressive. This is not a play party and all guests will be encouraged to come in clothing that comfortable and/or expressive in ways that feel good to them but required to keep under garments on and pelvic area covered. We suggest something that you might wear to move freely without feeling restricted. Separate top and bottom that allows you to expose legs, arms, and belly may feel good for the interactive portions of this workshop but is optional.
Please bring anything else that allows you to feel comfortable and we ask that you limit usage of strong perfumes/aromas to support a variety of sensory needs. Here's a list of items we use throughout most of our events, classes + workshops that will support your experience.
