«Fly Strong» is a two days workshop introduced by an evening class dedicated to rope bottoming skills (mandatory for both riggers and models attending the weekend’s classes). This program was designed to help build/restore confidence in the model’s body and capabilities as well as reinforcing the rigger’s understanding of both rope’s and body’s mechanics. It is ideal for riggers and models new to rope suspension.

This weekend focuses on the research for the optimal use of the body in ropes and how to achieve 'high success rate' suspensions, concentrating on positional studies rather than complex sequences.
The goal is to develop more awareness, confidence and stability on both parts in order to achieve stronger partnerships and rewarding experiences. 

 

(NOTE : This is NOT a beginner workshop and riggers should already know and master basic s

 

PLEASE NOTE : 

THIS IS NOT A BEGINNERS WORKSHOP - Riggers should already know and master basic suspension line technics and have achieved at least a few successful static suspensions.

BETTER BOTTOMING Aug 17 is included and mandatory for both Rigger and Model for participation in the weekend workshop.


ABOUT GORGONE

My method and approach to ropes is heavily influenced by my practice of yoga and bodywork, together with many years of professional experience on both sides of the ropes.
My teaching is directed to both riggers and models, guiding them to develop active, conscious and efficient partnerships in order to create successful rope experiences.
The method is built on the study and deconstruction of both rope’s and body’s mechanics and
my pedagogy encourages independency, freedom and creativity while maintaining a fundamental background of safety, knowledge and awareness.
