In this rope workshop, Parker RopeBoi teaches hogties that can be adjusted to various body geometries and ranges of mobility/flexibility.
Participants in this workshop will learn to tie hogties step-by-step, learning details of tension and placement. People being tied will learn how to determine which hogtie variations are best for your body. People tying will learn how to gauge and adjust a hogtie to be most suitable for a tying partner's specific body. Participants will have the opportunity to ask questions and get feedback.
Applications of the ties in rope floorwork will be demonstrated.
You can attend this workshop with or without a partner. If you are seeking a workshop partner, there will be an opportunity (though no guarantees) to pair up with someone else at start of the workshop. Observers are also welcome.
