Join us at the Reno Rope Bite, a skillshare and safe practice space. Event will take place at a local yoga studio and the address will be sent out the day before the event.
Solo or partnered, come practice what you have been workshopping or learn new skills. So if you are feeling nervous feel free to chat, relax, or order tea from the lounge (which is cash only fyi).
The focus for April will be: Agura
- We will do a follow along demo of a simple, non-suspendable agura. There are several versions available online as well.
- It is recommended to have two 30 ft ropes (we will have extra). You may not use all that rope but it is better to have extra just in case.
- It is recommend to know a single column tie. Here are links to a couple versions: Somerville Bowline: https://www.theduchy.com/somerville-bowline/ and Square Knot: https://www.theduchy.com/square-knot-single-column/#PicturesText
- During the demo there will be another person or two moving around the room to help anyone if they get stuck.
- During open practice, there will be someone to go over a suspendable version for those who are suspending. But all are free to watch.
Doors open at 2:50 p.m.
Demo/discussion at about 3:10 p.m.
Then all are free to their own practice.

Eudoxia is a rope enthusiast who has been learning rope since 2018, and with the pandemic much of that education has been done online via The Duchy and Shibari Study. As more in-person classes have become available she has traveled to the Bay area to take classes by Shay Tizano and other rope events. While not able to teach rope, she hopes to find safe spaces for the local Reno/Sparks greater area for people to feel comfortable sharing and growing in their practice.
