Shibari workshops

A good opportunity for you and your partner to learn shibari in a small group!


Private shibari lessons for singles and couples

If you prefer to learn shibari in depth, then private lessons are the way to go! We will find a convenient time slot and I'll be happy to share my knowledge with you individually, face to face.

An individual lesson for a couple costs 300 CHF and consists of 3 hours of intensive work. You come together with your partner. I conduct the lesson either alone or with my partner, if it's necessary to demonstrate challenging moments. We will decide on the topics together with you in advance.

If you don't have a partner for the class — no problem! I can organize a person you can practice with. Note: this is not an erotic/sexual offer.

A private lesson of 3 hours with a provided model costs 450 CHF.

Booking details: I will ask for a deposit of 100 CHF once we have agreed on the date. The deposit is non-refundable in case you cancel the appointment. However, it is possible to reschedule once! If I have to cancel the appointment from my side and we cannot agree on a different date, then I will refund your deposit.

Contact me to arrange a date!


Parties / Rope jams

Since November 2021 I organise regular rope jams in Bern — evening parties which are open for all shibari enthusiasts. Everybody is welcome: couples, singles, profis, beginners! My studio is a cozy safe space for you to play and get to know other people. I prepare 3-5 places (Japanese tatami) where you can tie. There's also a coffee corner.

My place is easily accessible by car and public transport: see its location and parking possibilities.

Admission fee 20 CHF per person.

Contact me if you want to join for the first time!
