In this class students will embark on the adventure of a lifetime exploring full body bondage! Suitable for all purposes, we’ll be exploring the waters using the fisher’s basket torso harness & mercreature leg binders.



Von Riga began his journey in shibari / kinbaku (Japanese rope bondage) under renowned rope master Scott Haruteru in 2014. Since then he has sought tutelage from a wide variety of teachers, both local & international, synthesising the accumulated techniques, perspectives & philosophies on rope into his own unique style. As a founding curator of Shibari Lounge, a monthly rope performance night held in Melbourne (with 47+ events & now in it’s 5th year), he regularly performs live - from underground clubs to festival stages, besides sharing his deep passion for rope teaching. With the rigour of traditional Japanese rope dojo training as a base, informed by a wider interest in conscious kink & tantric arts, Von Riga‘s practice emphasises technical skill & proficiency balanced with beautiful aesthetic simplicity, where presence, intuitive play & connection with one’s tying partner is paramount. Devoted to excellence in rope education & remaining true to the Japanese origins of the practice, Soul Rope Studios was born in 2022, a culmination of a decade long journey in rope.
