Hip Harness Fundamentals - Qatherine

Hip harnesses are a common component of rope suspension and can be incorporated into ground-based ties. This class is for tying pairs and self-tiers who are new to or want to deepen their understanding of hip harnesses. We will discuss different styles of hip harnesses and ways we can tailor them to our bodies and needs. Students will be guided through tying a simple hip harness and have time to explore modifications with guidance and feedback. The goal of this class is to provide a foundation that students can apply to learning, tying, and adapting hip harnesses to suit their needs, on both sides of the rope.
