*Come dressed to move. Jeans are not recommended. Comfy, snug-fitting clothing is best (loose drapey clothes can be difficult to work around). Avoid underwire bras, buttons, and anything that may feel irritating underneath the rope.
*Ties and sequences in these classes will vary between standing and on the floor. There will be room for modification. We also have chairs and cushions, and our floors are covered with mats. If there is something else you need to make the physical part of class accessible for you, please email us and let us know how we can help make that happen.
*Attendees should have their own rope and suspension gear for these classes, and are responsible for making sure their kit is suspension-worthy and in good shape. VoxBody does not have loaner rope suitable for suspension. We do have very limited suspension gear; please email us ahead of class if you need anything.
About the teachers:
Blue (she/her): Blue has been teaching and performing rope bondage since 2012. In June 2017, she opened VoxBody Studio, the Bay Area's first rope-dedicated venue. Blue is part of an active rope community in the Bay Area, teaching classes and hosting events regularly and performing at events such as Folsom Street Fair, Twisted Windows and Vau de Vire Society productions. She has also presented at RopeCraft, Bondage Expo Dallas, Desert Bound and Karada House’s QueerRope event. Blue is an enthusiastic sWitch, believes bondage education should address both sides of the rope, and is so proud of the Vox-community. Find her on IG @miss_true_blue.
Ivy (she/they): Ivy Limieux is a sWitchy Sadistic VoxFox, joining the rope community in 2016. She has a passion for volunteer work and fetish parties, and loves the incredibly supportive network of kinksters, artists, and fetishists that rope has allowed her to connect with. She believes that rope is as fluid and adaptable as the people who choose to participate, and that every desire to learn should be met with the opportunity to do so. She has taught/performed for organizations such as Dark Odyssey, Obsidian_LA, Black Rose Education, Kinky Activist Support Fund, and Kink.com. Ivy is the host of Kinky, Colorful, Conscious, a kinky POC roundtable founded in 2018. She co-host’s Oakland’s bi-monthly POC play party, SOUL as well as other POC events in the Bay Area. Find her on IG and FL @ivylimieux.
Moxie (she/her): Moxie has been rope bottoming since 2015, and started tying a few years into her rope journey. She’s passionate about restraint, aesthetics, body awareness, and rope that makes her feel distressed. She enjoys exploring ties that can be challenging and awkward, as well as repeating familiar shapes in ties that bring new knowledge and experience over time. Moxie has performed at events such as Twisted Windows, Folsom Street Fair, and Nuit des Cordes, attended NARIX 2016, and has bottomed for Kazami Ranki. She practices aerial and flexibility outside of rope to stay connected with her body and gain understanding of how our bodies communicate to us. Find her on IG and FL @boundmoxie.
