She likes to inspire people with her varied experiences and perspectives on living life. She studied psychology at West London university which helps her to differentiate subtle aspects of the human psyche and its processes.

Sarka likes exploring limits of different intensities, both subtle and extreme. She invites you to be a part of this magical and transformative space ‘in between’ where change occurs.

Fabian / RopuNawa
has been tying since 2008 after discovering Shibari/Kinbaku in Australia. The last 3 years he focused more on the Japanese way to tie, different styles and approaches to the rope, especially tying with a small amount of rope - "less is more".
His goal always is to connect with his tying partner in a nonverbal way. He is regularly traveling around to different places to learn new styles and broaden his experience, including a trip to the Japanese Bakushis in Winter 2017. 
He runs a small dojo in the heart of Basel, with weekly meetings and regular workshops.

Is Ith
Is a medical doctor and neuroscientist now situated in Basel. In the last years, her passion for music, dancing and competitive sport combined with her curiosity and empathy for people made her increasingly interested in using various techniques of (non-)verbal communication as well as further understanding the corresponding underlying, biological processes. 
When teaching, she especially enjoys helping to form emotionally intense moments of clarity and understanding. 
Presently, her main focus is on the play with rope as well as medical aspects and caveats while doing so.
