We are so excited to welcome you to a rope jam in a space that is perfect for floor rope, partials and suspensions!
A rope jam is a space to hang out with rope people, practice our rope skills and play in a community setting. Rope is a beautiful way to connect with our own bodies, our friends and partners.
It takes time to develop rope knowledge and skills, and it’s safer when we can look out for each other, so a rope jam is a chance to hang out, learn and have fun. If you are curious about rope and would like to meet ropey people, ask questions, and see some rope scenes, come along!
You don’t need to have your own rope to join in. We will have some you can borrow for practicing the basics.
If you would rather be tied, it’s great to come along and learn about rope safety, scene navigation, what to look for in a rigger, etc so that your rope experiences are positive.
Costs and Times
Entry is $10 per person and open to all rope enthusiasts. Doors open at 6pm and we’ll finish at 10pm. The entry fee is to cover hall hire and insurance for the evening.
There is an optional workshop available for $10.
NOTE- You can use your Dine and Discover vouchers prior to July 1 to attend rope jam and the workshop!
What to wear
Whatever you feel comfortable doing rope in, but we generally wear clothes you’d wear to a yoga or exercise class.
Optional rope class
From 6.30pm, Lydia will be teaching a mini-workshop on flowy floor rope for connection. Good for participants of all levels, the focus will be on taking elements like single columns, double columns, futomomos, and joining these together to make a playful scene. The class is an additional $10 per person.
Located at the Ashtanga Yoga Studio in Newcastle West, the room features wide, open spaces for floor rope and an open ceiling full of steel beams for partial or full suspension. The space is on the top floor so we can be ourselves without vanillas wandering by.
What to bring
Yourself! Rope if you have some. If you’re joining the class, you’ll need 2-3 ropes and your safety shears or rope cutting tool.
If you have your own mats, please bring them along. We will bring some mats, and there will also be yoga mats.
If you have the appropriate skills and experience and plan to do a partial or suspension, please bring your own climbing straps, carabiners, rings etc.
Can’t wait to see you all there!
