Private Lessons

Starting the Journey

Shibari is a wonderfully sexy, connective form of sensual play. I teach private lessons and small-group workshops in the Seattle area, and I'm happy to customize a lesson for you. 

In an introductory lesson, we'll cover topics such as safety, communication and scene negotiation, 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? We will customize the lesson to what you're specifically interested in learning, such as suspension bondage, decorative rope work, intense sensation play with rope (semenawa), and other topics.

​My lessons are appropriate for people of all genders, body types, and sexual orientation, and my goal is to create a low-key, relaxed, and enjoyable learning experience.


  • The rate for intensive private instruction is $75/hour per duo, with a two-hour minimum. Discounts are available for longer lesson packages. Contact me for details.
  • Small-Group Lessons:  Contact me for rates.
