Testimonials

244052581_4486809121386820_7273429067695
I participated in Bina's Shibari Workshop 'how to create a safer space' as a bloody beginner in terms of knots and techniques. I very much liked how Bina structured the evening. She shared important basics around safety, knot techniques and there was spacious time to just play. Bina's profound knowledge, her authenticity, clarity and her presence made me feel very safe to start my own playful explorations. I also adored her sense of humor. I will definitely come again.

FAQ

Can I come alone?

Yes, you can participate as an individual or with a friend/partner you feel comfortable with. You can also bring a friend and decide to tie with someone else in the space.

I am a Shibari beginner. Can I join?

Yes, unless it is specifically stated in the workshop description. You don't need to know any tying techniques. If you already have experience, you will be able to extend your knowledge. 

Is there a gender balance?

In my workshops I strive to have more or less a gender balance. However, I do not want to hold on stereotype roles, as I celebrate diversity. If you want to make sure you tie with the opposite gender, then bring someone with you.

Is there nudity or sexuality?

No, in our workshops we strive to create a safe space for everyone and clothes stay on. Even though the focus is not explicitly on sexuality, it is possible that sensual energy might arise, if it is consensual.

Is it in German or English?

As most of the time I have international participants, the default language is English. In case someone is not comfortable with it, it can be held in German and there will be translation. 

I am struggling financlially but would like to join.

Just contact me and we find a solution.
