Asa has been teaching the fundamentals of Body Language for over a decade. Her enthusiasm for Kinbaku-Bi or Shibari, led to her self-study of this bondage technique, which was followed by training courses at the “London Festival of the Art of Japanese Rope Bondage”, performed with Riccardo Sergnese, Professor at the Scoula di Bondage di Roma. Meeting myriad other rope artists allowed her to enhance and develop her own idiosyncratic style. Asa is the founder of “Art Ropes”, a collective of various artists, aiming at the promotion, development, and distribution of the arts based on ropes. This form of bondage is a discipline which, although erotic, is mainly an artistic expression based on a Japanese Martial Art known as Kinbaku-Bi. It applies learned restraint techniques, which utilizes simple yet visually intricate patterns, usually with several pieces of rope to create sophisticated and visually stimulating figures. The art not lay completely in its end formation, but rather in the symbiosis of combined body and verbal language between the subject and facilitator.

Lea, from Lower Saxony, completed a diploma in Administration and Management and worked over a decade in a bureau before she began to experience Berlin and the city’s kinky side. During her exploration she made many intrinsic experiences in BDSM, learning about different self-awareness skills, and bodywork techniques such as, Tai Chi, Qi Gong, Contact Improvisation and much more. In her second life, she started to study Anatomy, Physiology, and Pathophysiology and became an Alternative Healer following studies of Traditional Chinese Medicine, Acupuncture, Western Herbology and various Therapeutic Techniques. The fusion of her well established medical knowledge, having a versatile sex-life, and a strong desire to vitalize the sexual entity residing in others, inspired her to originate her own counseling establishment with a special focus on sexuality and teaching sexual techniques.

Janaki, from Norway, started studying the Tantric tradition of yoga in 2003 in Bihar Yoha Bharati, India, under the guidance of Swami Satyananda and Swami Niranjanananda. Through practicing and teaching the techniques of yoga for several years she developed an intimate knowledge of body physiology, breath awareness and functions, meditation and relaxation techniques and the inherent interrelationship between body, mind, emotions, and breath. To expand upon her love and feeling for body work she studied various forms of massage in London in 2009.
Finding that both areas of work lacked a very important aspect of human sexuality, she joined Diamond Lotus in 2012, completing the Tantra Massage 1 training. She is now living in the Diamond lotus community and working as a Tantra masseuse at Ananada Massage in Cologne. Her greatest love and interest lies in the questions of what it means to be a woman; energy, creation, beauty, nature and manifestation. What is the woman’s role in relation to a man in this earthly manifestation, in particularly in the sexual relationship and exploring the meaning of the sexual energy being the essential energy of creation and life itself?

Stina is a licensed and trained Midwife, however after 5 years of this demanding field along with an unsuccessful relationship, she decided to change her focus. Stina’s interest in spirituality and sexuality led her to search for something greater, to answer the burning questions of what it means to be a woman, sexually and in society. She searched throughout her life in myriad facets of social forms of living, marriage, and working different jobs. She explored her sexuality through engaging in several different partners over a number of years. She engaged in yoga and learning different forms of meditation. Finally, she found herself studying at the Diamond Lotus Institute in Berlin, where through the study of Red Tantra, she found many of her questions answered.
After completing Tantra Massage training in 2010, she worked as a masseuse at Ananda in Cologne and Tarisha in Nurnberg for 2 years. She explored areas of Tantra, BDSM, Polyamory, Pan-Sexuality and in areas of psycho-therapeutic and energy healing of Bio-Energetic and Psychoanalysis.
Today she lives as a member of the Diamond Lotus Community in Berlin and works there as a Tantra Masseuse and coach, continually endeavoring to be more conscious of the power of her feminine Sex and share her findings to enrich the lives of others through the power of therapeutic sexuality.
