Description

LA QUARTA CORDA INTENSIVE

For the first time in Scotland a two days of intensive workshop in the La quarta corda style!

Level: Improver and up (levels explained here)

We’ll have a complete path in Japanese bondage from basics to partial suspensions, from iconic ties like the gote shibari to progressions aimed for a deep energetic exchange between top and bottom.

During the first day we’ll focus on basics ties and on progressions in order to understand the fundamental shibari lynchpins: technique, aestetics and communication.

During the second day we’ll learn the gote in the versions developped by La quarta corda and we’ll understand how to use this tie to control the bottom. We’ll talk also about freestyling and how to achieve a good skill and self-confidence, without insecurity and following no fixed patterns.

We’ll understand that ropes are a means of communication. We’ll talk about the “ma”, that is what gives a meaning to our ties, and we’ll discover the beauty of semenawa, shikarizeme and kotobazeme.

We’ll discuss also side topics regarding the Japanese bondage: rope length, top’s and bottom’s movements, nonverbal communication.

La quarta corda style is a personal, elegant and empathic way of tying where traditionnal aestetics join new functional, safe and usefull techniques.

Workshop topics can change depending on the attendees’ level.
