### Who is she?
Gestalta is a British shibari teacher and performer, currently based in Berlin. Her approach to shibari has evolved as the result of over a decade of practice on both sides of the ropes and a broad range of influences which she appropriates, mixes and develops in her own practice.
She absorbed much of her rigging technique as a natural process of observation and experience from inside the ropes of the people she was tied by which has shaped her teaching style into one that seeks to reflect the experience of both tying partners on a deep level.
She has a strong belief that shibari should not be prescriptive and encourage students to explore it as a flexible set of tools; adapting each tie to the body of the tied partner, and to their needs and desires within each individual situation.
Her teaching process aims to enable this by giving students a framework of the fundamental principles behind shibari; including safety efficiency and fluency, but also body awareness, communication, and conscious consideration of their own experiences and motivations.
