Begining Suspension @ Williamson 3

You’ve decided that you’re ready to learn suspension? Great! This is the class for you. We are going to teach you to get your bottom in the air with a couple of basic suspension positions but also allowing you some creative license in where you put the rope and how you get them there. We will discuss the positions on a conceptual level and then give them a go.

Class Type: Tie-along suspension
Participation: Pairs or groups

Bigger Bottoms Agura

The biggest trick in tying this on any body shape is how you start your lift. Because the primary amount of weight is in the legs starting out in this tie, this can be a hard body lift. To avoid these extreme lifts and possible harm to your rigger, let’s look at the ways we can find your perfect flight in this beautiful and versatile sequence. • Let’s look at thigh band placements for thicker thighs. How many bands will fit on my legs? • To waist rope, or not to waist rope? Pre-reqs: Both riggers and bottoms should be experienced in suspension, be able to communicate through ties, and have safety tools.

Masterclass: Jazz Tying Transition Suspensions
Oct 27 @ 4:00 pm – 5:30 pm
Masterclass: Jazz Tying Transition Suspensions

Advanced Students for hands on, auditing all levels

There is limited participation space available in this class.

One of the most difficult parts of learning dynamic transition suspensions is learning to think freely about where and how to manipulate the body. In this masterclass, students will be forced to think outside of the box and not follow a pattern when executing transitions during a suspension. This class will have a limited number of hands on participants.
Requirements: 8-12 ropes of at least 26 ft in length and proper suspension equipment. Tops must know how to tie a secure chest harness, hip, harness, and a safe single column tie. Tops must have a good understanding of upline management and must have done suspensions before in the past. Bottoms must have suspension experience and must be able to communicate effectively and efficiently with their top. Bottoms must have a good understanding of their own body.

Class Type: Tie-along suspension

The Power of Mind/Body in Rope @ Williamson 3

The Power of Mind/Body in Rope @ Williamson 3

Body and mental self-awareness are key things to have in your top and bottom skill set, and they might be a little more intertwined than you’d think. Sometimes tapping into deep headspace isn’t just about letting go of emotional noise, but mindfully willing your body to work with you to reach that state too. Additionally, managing a tie isn’t just about engaging a certain muscle group to shift weight or align for optimal movement – it’s about training the mind to identify the issue in the first place, and using the power of mind/body in tandem to get the experience you want to have. This class will cover exercises, ranging from mindfulness and somatics to psychophysiology, to build body awareness in and out of rope. And perhaps more importantly, teach us how to respect the interconnectedness of mind and body so we can use that intrinsic strength to reach our rope happy place.

Note: this class is best experienced with a tying companion with experience in partial suspensions. Those without partials experience or a tying companion are welcome to audit.

Class Type: Tie-along partial suspension
Participation: Solo
