Stacks Image 209

The Yukimura-ryū (Yukimura style) of shibari is often called the "caressing style". It has a focus on communication between partners using the medium of rope, with the objective being to express love and evoke emotional responses in the person being tied, with each and every moment and action having intent and focus.

The introduction will cover two main ties: maete shibari (
前手の縛り- arms in front shibari) and the Yukimura-ryū gote (後手の縛り), with this tying occurring primarily on the floor.

The cost of the workshop will be $40 per couple, and numbers are strictly limited. Tickets can be purchased at Eventbrite.
