Advanced Lewbari Weekend with Lew Rubens - Houston
When we did the original Lewbari Weekend I taught you all years worth of learning in one weekend. Every small section of that weekend expands and could be a whole class. Let's expand!

Now we start to move toward independent thought concerning suspension bondage. We'll start with one of the trickiest suspension positions, inversion. Then we move towards methods of problem solving you should be able to use for any suspension position that you want to try.
After we figure out what some of the problems are, we'll go into my new Lewping System and learn a few new tools for solving problems. Then it's a free for all! Freestyle suspensions. Pick something you've always wanted to try and together we'll see if it's possible.
Let's list priorities:

So what have you forgotten?
Do you remember basics?
Western, shibari, mix.
Do a different single limb tie on each wrist.
Everyone do a hogtie
Torso support ties
GiottOsadaSteveTK2!  Ha ha!
Boola boola that works!

Inversion Methods:
Ankles only- regular cinch tie. Gravity boot tie
By waist
By hips
BnT (block and tackle) vs static point and transition
Fancy showy version on static point
Ankles only
Gravity boot
Tight parallel ankles cinched using bowline
My larks head method

By Waist
Waist loops to comfortable tightness, rope to OHP, test it
Drum? I don't know it
CharlyB method I want to try

By hips (The method I use most)
Add hip/thigh harness slightly below hips
Add torso support w/doubled over shoulder wraps
After lift add rope to ankles and torso to distribute weight

The lift

With BnT
Start with bottom on floor, keeping hip/thigh in place
Raise, add ankles ropes and tension to what bottom says is good
Add torso support rope and add tension to what bottom says is good
Finish tie the however you want.

On static point
Lewping System loop temporarily on torso to OHP
connect hip/thigh
Lower torso loop to transition
Have bottom help to keep hip/thigh ropes in place
Show fancy showy and DANGEROUS method

Problem solving for any suspension position
Remember the main three body weight distribution points
Visualize mentally AND physically
For safety use a BnT first time
Even when you want to do it static point you can use BnT AS the static point for safety
Don't try dangerous positions or maneuvers without spotters!

Lewping System
How TheBondage Challenge created the Lewping System
Making the Lewps - Vary size of Lewp for job at hand
Using the Lewps - face up, face down, on hip/thigh, on legs
Locking the Lewps down - Side to side locks, over shoulder locks
Dangers: movers/wigglers can sometimes bounce out of Lewps!
Adjusting height/transitions into other positions
Bamboo with lewps

Optional by majority vote:
Tree faery tie
Self puppeteering suspension!
Midoris zigzag method of sideways suspension!
Sideways in general
Box arm tie?
Fake strappado
Plastic wrap suspensions!
Dynamic suspensions (where you change positions)
Freestyle practice Create anything you want!!
