Give your partner an experience they'll never forget and learn a sexy new skill together. This workshop is designed for anyone interested in exploring the concept of power exchange with rope, and how this plays out physically in the bedroom. The class will consist of a tutorial of three basic ties and how they can be used singularly or in conjunction with each other to create an erotically charged rope scene. Learn how to tie elegantly with controlled measured technique. Participants will be encouraged to tie and be tied in turn to get a fully rounded experience of this ancient art form. Shibari, at its core, is about the centered control of oneself and one's partner. It can be an incredibly erotic and sensual experience for all concerned and is a rewarding way to add to your sexual skills. The information learned here can be carried through to many real life situations. Materials to bring to class: You will need to bring a rope kit made up of two 15ft. pieces and two 30ft. pieces (can be purchased at Shag for $60) or a Shibari Kit (See below). We've combined our popular Intro to Shibari class with our newly released beginners Shibari kit to create the perfect gift!

The Art of Tantric Sensual Touch
Sat., Feb. 13th;: 5-7:00pm: Hosted by Melody Kiersz: While most traditions ask us to renounce our body, our senses and pleasure, Tantra is the path of expansion, encouraging us to find connection through our physical experience instead of around it. Similar to alchemy, it teaches us how to transform our every day experiences into ecstatic encounters with everything we come across. So what does this have to do with sex? Simple. In Tantra, we recognize that pleasure is one of those things that blur the boundaries of where 'I' ends and 'Not-I' begins. We utilize it as a tool because, as we open up to pleasure, we also start becoming aware of the ways in which we are blocked to receive it. Those pesky areas where we learned we are not worthy of it. You want to get rid of those doubtful and judgmental voices in your head? The ones that are keeping you from a life that feels like everything is deliciously juicy and moan-worthy? Join us in this fun experiential playshop, where you will learn how to use Tantric sensual touch techniques to - Explore what brings you pleasure - Learn the real meaning of giving and receiving - Practice setting boundaries to create a safe space for exploration outside of your usual comfort zone - Bring awareness around your reactions to your interactions with others so that you can be increasingly more open to receive the intimacy and ecstasy that is your birthright We specifically designed this playshop so that you can take the tools you learn and continue practicing on your own. All exercises will be practiced while clothed, and there will be no sexual contact during this workshop.
