This class is designed for individuals who have some rope experience. Though it isn't an introductory course, beginners in their rope journey may still participate.
Self-care is commonly understood as an act of tending to oneself. Engaging in self-tying centers your focus inward, enabling you to prioritize yourself. Recognizing the importance of self-care, which reduces stress and fosters motivation, energy, and excitement in life, this self-tying for self-care class aims to enhance your personal self-care practice.
Throughout the class, we will delve into two distinct types of ties: the “futomomo” or bent leg tie, and a chest harness. We will explore various adaptations for both comfort and relaxation. We will also address safety protocols and environmental considerations that underpin optimal self-care practices. Through self-tying, we'll center exploration of our rope journeys.
The class will include specific rope knots and techniques, including:
1. Single column tie
2. Larks head knot
3. Basic knot
4. Half hitch knot
5. Cow hitch knot
6. Reverse tension
But don't worry, this class won't get too technical. Our main goal is to foster self-awareness using rope as a means of comfort.
