Happy Baby [Level 1]

  There are 7 techniques you should learn before this one. Click here to add this tie as a goal and see them in order.

Notes and Resources:

Tie a single column around one thigh in a seated position. Have your bottom lean forward between their knees, then bring the rope across their back (with tension) to the opposite thigh, and tie a captured overhand cuff. Roll them onto their back, and you've got a leg position similar to the "Happy Baby" yoga pose.

    I have the impression that the captured overhand cuff in this video is of the constricting kind. The first time the rope goes around it goes through the overhand knot and that's great, but the second time around you don't run it through the loop of the overhand knot. As a result, when the model pulls with her/his leg, the rope around the leg tightens. It's easy to fix, you just need to run all three turns through the overhand knot, and then fix it with a knot of your preference. I might be mistaken, so please correct me if I got it wrong.

      Sorry, I watched again, and I am indeed mistaken. My apologies.

      Does anyone have a recommended way to bind the wrists for this position?
