Somatics for Rope Bottoms
Bringing together my love for Kinbaku and my professional background in Sexological Bodywork, I developed a structure for rope bottoms to deepen their experience in ropes and make it more internal, conscious and safe. This resource is for people who like being in ropes and want to grow and improve their experience. You will find here my writings related to different aspects of rope bottoming and/or Somatics, downloadable resources, my workshops / coaching offer and links to other practitioners.
You are invited to get inspired with my work and apply it in your practice. Do spend some time with the material. Apply it, embody it, make a change for yourself, learn something from it… This would be my biggest reward!
Somatics for Rope Bottoms
Rope bottoming is a somatic discipline, says Natasha NawaTaNeko. Through developing our ability to sense and regulate ourselves, we can have the experience we are yearning for.
In rope bondage, what we rope bottoms bring into play is our body, our emotions, our psyche, and souls. Our whole being in its entirety is known as the Greek word “soma.” We allow ourselves to be affected on many levels, exposed to playing with our emotions, enduring physical discomfort, and open to mental challenges. What is truly remarkable about our soma is its unlimited capacity to adapt and learn. Soma is endlessly creative, always undergoing that endless cycle of life, and change; leaving behind the familiar terrain and entering into the unknown.

I came across this book the other day and I’m so happy I did. When you think about learning a new skill, in this case rope bottoming, we forget to check in with ourselves often. We become so focused on outward experiences and this book created a different approach to rope bottoming and life in general. I think it’s so important for anyone learning about rope bottoming or actively in rope to read this book. I am so grateful that someone took the time to write about the inner work that can be done in this practice.
"Somatics for Rope Bottoms is an astonishing repository of body-based wisdom that will contribute tremendously to the exploding fields of somatic therapy and education."
