Fuoco

fuocoFuoco began her rope journey as a bottom in Phoenix four years ago. Since then she had the good fortune to spend a year in London, where she gained exposure to the broader European rope scene and had the opportunity to work with some incredibly talented bottoms and riggers. Since moving back to the US, she has presented at cons around the country sharing her love of rope. She is switchy in rope and a vocal advocate for rope bottoms.

When she’s not doing rope, fuoco is a full time circus student, and she is constantly training to build strength and flexibility. Her dedicated study of the mechanics of the body makes her especially interested in developing more comprehensive education for bottoms informed by these practices. She enjoys using rope as another aerial apparatus and loves high energy, dynamic suspension bondage.

Rope Bottoming 101

This is the perfect class for the new rope bottom who has yet to be tied or is just starting to explore rope bondage. By the end of this lesson, students will have a better understanding of rope lingo in order to facilitate better communication between them and their tops. They will be better able to identify the difference between good pain and bad/dangerous pain in rope and parts of the body that are more susceptible to injury when practicing rope bondage. The class also includes a talk on balancing safety with your own ego and your rigger’s ego, giving good feedback, vetting your rigger, and understanding how to communicate what it is about rope that is appealing in order to create the best scene possible!

Riggers are not required but are encouraged to attend!

Body Awareness for Rope

Tops and bottoms are quick to say that body awareness is a highly desirable quality in a rope bottom. But what is body awareness? How do we cultivate body awareness as a skill? And how does it inform our rope bottoming? This class will consist of a discussion on what it means to be a “body aware bottom” followed by a number of exercises designed to help you evaluate and cultivate your own body awareness.

Flexibility with Fuoco

This workshop addresses mobility and flexibility in the areas most used by rope bottoms- the shoulders, back, and hips. The workshop begins with a discussion on the how-tos of developing flexibility and mobility and concludes with a stretch session designed to target these three areas. We will focus on how to develop strong, stable, and open shoulders, principles of deeper back bending, and unlocking tightness in the hips. Attendees will learn the difference between mobility and flexibility, and how to practically apply that knowledge into their own stretching routines. This class is intended for people of all flexibility levels.
