In the xplore Bodywork Exchange Space, a permanent place is set up where participants can gain their (first) experiences in ropes with the trainers of Osada Kinbaku e.V., which has been an integral part of xplore since the early days of the festival.
How the session is structured depends on your wishes and ideas. Whether on the ground or in the air, playing with closeness and distance, pain and pleasure or simply a technical bondage; you can experience how rope feels on your body and what it does to you. You can talk to the trainers when they are not occupied with tying and after a short introductory talk things can usually already start.
The Shibari Lounge also invites those who want a quieter place to linger, watch and let the impressions sink in.
Trainers: Hagen, Arlis, Alex, Lilly
