Dasniya Sommer Yoga & Shibari Workshops, July 19-27, Vienna

Here is all the info for Dasniya’s workshops in Vienna later this month, and it is already half(-ish)-full (most excellent!).

What is Yoga & Shibari?

The workshop combines yoga and the Japanese rope technique ‘Shibari’. First, we do yoga to develop a sense of our own body anatomy; the simultaneous perception of one’s own breathing and bodymap is therefore important. In doing so, we can better empathise with another body while in the play of rope. In some asanas (yoga postures) ropes are integrated, or we tie ourselves from the start and do yoga while in a foot or breast-harness. The touch of the material helps clarify one’s investigation of the posture, and mixes the sensual and manual skills of bodies and ropes.

In the second part we come to mix different rope techniques and stir things up. For Shibari figure technique, we are guided by the precision and acrobatic art of Osada Steve, while Arisue Go’s philosophy is particularly suitable for beginners and can give impetus to explore one’s own ideas,

We ourselves have developed in recent years, a technique that we call messy tying. Traditional elements are retained here and combined with improvisation principles; the apparent order in the inner chaos is a kind of punk bondage! We also work with a feminist attitude towards Shibari: if porn, then please be sure to view a feminist porn! Everyone ties everyone, and male bodies captivated and tied is also sexy! For neat and clean tying and rope work in these workshops, we will also be covering the basic knots, fundamentals for breast-harness, and suspension and safety principles.

In pair or group situations in which we develop a bodily conversation, we see expressions of queer, grotesque or purely abstract play language. This may create relaxing and sometimes uninterpretable compositions of sensory stimuli, or also symbolically charged moments. We work here as well with methods drawn from dance and contact improvisation, and elements from role-playing games.

Since the level of the participants in yoga, games, and rope-work are always different, we work from the first on the level of personal experience. We also always give individual instructions.
