Feel Even Better in Bondage: Stretching, Breathing, Pain Processing
Learn how to prepare your body for a bondage scene and how to get more out of it once you’re in it. We’ll cover 1. A simple pre-scene stretching sequence that you can do standing (no rolling around on dirty dungeon floors unless you want to!); 2. How to breathe into different parts of your body, and how to use the breath to calm and center yourself in a challenging tie; 3. Techniques to help you process pain so you can go deeper into the tie. This class is about 50% lecture and 50% class participation. Appropriate for all skill levels, and a partner is not required. Please wear comfortable clothing you can stretch in.
