SAWA
Sawa is a Berlin-based rope artist, who hosted pre-Corona the Berlin Bondage Jam and teaches and organises workshops and classes about rope bondage and somatic coaching.
Sawa started teaching ropes in 2019, following the support and empowerment of her peers. She intensely studied Shibari and Kinbaku from both sides: in ropes and tying. Combined with her six years experience as a systemic coach and multiple years as a martial arts instructor, her teaching is very conceptional, driven and enthusiastic. She deliberately crosses styles, clashes body work and martial arts with ropes and reinforces improvisation and creativity.
