(POSTPONED) Tying and Flying: Self-Suspension 101 with Shay

Tickets are presale only

Self-suspension can be used for dynamic movement, exploring intense sensation, performance, learning partnered bondage, ritual, and more. After a discussion of general principles and safety considerations specific to self-suspension, participants will practice support line skills and be guided through a basic face-up self suspension, with a possible transition to an inversion and introduction to some in-air variations.

This class utilizes an “inverted classroom” format – participants are expected to have working knowledge of a self-tied chest harness and hip harness prior to coming to class. We will still tie the harnesses as a class, so attendees are not expected to have them memorized, but familiarity will allow us to spend the class time polishing your harnesses and working on “in-air” skills. These harnesses can be found in free videos; specific links and alternative Tying & Flying page number references will be e-mailed to attendees.

Pre-requisites: This class is intended as a "101" level introduction to self-suspension. Attendees should have experience with tying on the ground (as both a top and bottom, and/or self-tying), and be very comfortable with non-cinching single column ties. In order to self-suspend in class, participants should review the health evaluation articles that will be e-mailed to attendees, and have body & risk awareness to participate at a level that is safe(r) for them.


Class from 2 - 5:30pm, doors open at 1:30pm

Location: VoxBody Studio (exact location will be emailed from to attendees the week before the event. The location that shows on eventbee is NOT accurate.)

Class size limited to insure everyone has "air time" and personalized instruction. There will be a hard point for each attendee. Each attendee may bring one non-tying "spotter" if they would like, but this is not required.

You will need a basic self-suspension kit. There may be some supplies available to borrow, please contact Shay with any questions.
