“Tying someone bigger than you”

RATES AVAILABLE FOR 1 OR 2 DAYS

This class is certainly my main speciality at the moment.
Due to my shorter size than average, I have to deal with bigger bodies while tying frequently. This means that almost everyone is taller and heavier than me.

-Respect your model size and appreciate how to work with it while tying.
-Learn how to suspend someone who has more weigh and/or height than you.
-How to safely move from static suspensions to dynamic transitions.
-Work on "scape land" and  safe take-downs.
-Learn practical, comfortable and sustainable pattern ties.
-More...

This class is not for beginners students. Attenders must know how to make basic suspensions already and models must be able to deal with basic suspensions.
It could apply to anyone who is interested in learning practical knowledge about suspensions safely, without making any major physical effort.

 

Asymmetry

RATES AVAILABLE FOR 1, 2 OR 3 DAYS

Are you interested in learning creative patterns developed by me that focus on the idea of ASYMMETRY?
This is my new favourite obsession right now. I have been working on pattern ties, body positions and sequence transitions for a few years now and, finally, I’m ready to show all my secrets, techniques and ideas.

My main focus on this format will be to show my patterns and let the attenders try them. I can coach some adaptations if the model needs it and try them on suspension. If the level is adequate, I would show you also how to use them in different sequences and transitions utilizing a ring or bamboo. At the end of the class, I will leave some time for creative exploration where some concepts and ideas can be tested around.

This class is not for absolute beginners, but I can adapt the class depending on the levels and interests. The whole class can be taught on a ring or using bamboo.

-Intermediate level for pattern teaching and static suspension on a ring or bamboo.
-Advanced level for pattern teaching and suspensions with dynamic transitions on a ring or bamboo.
-Both of the above can have the option of using bamboo if there is available on the venue.

Private lessons & Regular lessons

The setting for a private lesson or regular lessons is focused on a 1:1 learning process. It would go through every step of practicing Shibari in the most safe, enjoyable and efficient possible way, making it a deeper experience too. 
You can book a classic Shibari lesson that consists in one person tying and another person being tied up or a self tying lesson where the subject tying and being tied up is yourself.

-Learn about safety, risks and important philosophical aspects related to Shibari.
-Have a complete understanding of your level, which includes discovering which level you are exactly in and realize what you are missing to overcome it.
-Decide which is the next step.
-Understand the technical aspects of tying and being tied up.
-Learn useful and practical exercises that are suitable for your needs as a rigger or/and as a model.

Private sessions

If you are interested in booking a private session with me, that means you are willing to be tied up by me.
Sessions usually take from 1 hour to 3 hours, depending on the necessities of each case.
Overview:
Welcome, chat to get to know each other, negotiation about the limits and boundaries (don’t worry, if you don’t have experience, I will guide you!), clearance about the interests of each other, familiarize any special physical/health/mental condition, session, feedback and rest.

I like to take the time to know each model, even the ones who have experience. For me, communication, trust and consent are of the utmost importance.

If you are interested, fill this form and ask as many questions as possible!

If you are someone who is interested in booking for a rope/Shibari photoshoot theme, don’t hesitate and contact me.

I also offer a service as a rigger and photographer; my prices are quite accessible with a high-quality result.
I can bring a photographer or videographer to theshooting while I tie and direct the scene.

I will only tie for a shooting or shoot as a photographer for artistic and professional purposes. I do not tie nude or partially nude models for explicit content.
All the attendants must be over 18 years old and must be aware of the nature of the shooting.

 
 

Performance

I usually work on my own creations which I perform in various types of events and venues. I can also work with other performers in creation/collaborative terms or being hired to tie for specific live shows projects.

Self Suspension by Pauline Massimo

Self Suspension

During this type of performance, I will be tying myself alone on stage.
I often mix Shibari and circus knowledge to create an original and refreshing kind of entertainment, a tasteful production for all type of publics.
A safe and secure suspension point is required as this type of show is categorised as aerials.

Rope performance

Presenting the essence of my own work involving classic Shibari imaginary and mixing it up with a more contemporary touch. For this act it is required a proper co-performer who will be the model or a switch between rigger and model during the performance. This, due to the nature of the performance, also requires a safe and secure suspension point.

“Rooting on the ground”

This performance is unique, where two or more performers will act with me using contemporary Shibari skills. This includes but doesn’t limit to acting and dancing immersing the public with an intense scene where no suspension point is needed. The performance would be carried on in the ground, creating a piece of art with each other’s body and objects.
