I have been tying my body on ropes for nearly a decade. The rope has taken me to emotional, physical and spiritual places beyond anything I could ever imagine. In these places I found life. This is what the rope has done to me; it has given me life.

When I got introduced to Shibari I instantly recognised the miraculous tool it can be. The only difference was coming down to the diameter of the rope; 26mm difference that is. The sensation, the liberation, the emotional and spiritual journey during a session are very much the same.

Shibari is a tool which allows me to guide other people into these journeys. It’s an act of generosity and love.
