Summer is all about a variety of ties and body positions. The body can be restrained in multiple ways, for each position we can design an infinite amount of rope pattern. 

We start with upper body ties from Week 14 to 17, with the arms in various positions. Week 18 is a deeper dive into the variations of the classic box tie. From Week 19 we explore various lower body and full body positions that will challenge the body in different ways. We complete our journey with some microbondage, fingers, toes in Week 25 and 26. You can explore the different positions and concepts in any order, follow the proposed structure, or go directly to your favourites.

Make sure you check the getting started section first! Summer builds upon the content of Spring
