When it comes to watching a suspension, there are a lot of factors that go into how it looks to the viewer. There are positions that, no matter how relaxed the person is, just look a little uncomfortable or awkward. On the other hand, there are some suspensions that come together so well, watching it unfold can instantly give you the urge to try it. This video of Cass suspending at the loft definitely falls into that second category for me. I can’t really point out any one thing in particular that attracts me to it, I think it’s the combination of it all; how comfortable the position looks, the relaxed atmosphere, and how at ease she seems suspending.
Her relaxed demeanor probably comes from a combination of experience, and working with people that she trusts. The piercing and rigging for this suspension were performed by her friend Emrys Yetz, who introduced her to body suspension over 7 years ago. Since that time, she has enjoyed suspending with the members of iHung, and has even performed this position once before with a transition to just her knees. She chose to not cut down to her knees this time, but stayed in the air for over an hour, enjoying every second of it.
Cassandra described her time suspending as purifying, and I’m happy to hear that it was such a powerful moment for her. I’m sure that this won’t be the last amazing experience she has as she continues with her journey into body suspension. Thank you so much for sharing this with us, and to Jared for the wonderful work in creating this video.
