Private Lessons

Starting the Journey

Shibari is a wonderfully sexy, connective form of sensual communication. I teach private lessons and small-group workshops in the Seattle area, and I'm happy to customize a lesson for you.Click to learn a bit about my approach to Shibari~

In an introductory lesson, we'll cover topics such as safety, communication and consent, basic knots used in bondage, basic limb ties and body harnesses, and bondage for decoration, sensual restraint vs. bondage for sex (they're not the same thing, often).

Already have prior rope bondage experience? I will customize the lesson to what you're specifically interested in learning, such as suspension bondage, decorative rope work, 'intense rope' and other topics.

My studio welcomes people of all genders, body types, and sexual orientations, and my goal is to create a low-key, relaxed, and enjoyable learning experience.


  • The rate for intensive private instruction is $170 for a two hour lesson--that fee pays for both you and your partner. Discounts are available for longer lessons. Contact me for details.
