Intimate & private sessions
Hanging out in nature
Performances & installations
Providing our suspendees with a safe and positive experience comes first. Without the experience, the suspension lacks meaning. Body suspension is an artform to us. Unless it is requested that we do not document a suspension, or certain aspects of it, we make a point of capturing as much as possible on camera. Images tell stories that words often fail to convey.
Members of Anchors Aweigh have different backgrounds in different industries. What brings us together is collaboration, with each other as well as other teams and/or artists. Working together, we can make unique art. We don't believe there is any one reason for suspending. Whether it's for personal reasons, spiritual in nature, or purely recreational, we respect all intentions, so long as they are not harmful to the suspendee, or others.
The bottom line is, we are here in this life to help each other overcome limitations, and make progress on individual levels. We are forever learning, improving, and looking to elevate ourselves.
Everybody has their own reasons, and motivations range from spiritual to recreational. Sometimes it is simply to sate one's curiosity.
More often than not, the common denominator is some form of release; intense physical and emotional releases are frequent.
Absolutely. But the pain goes away rather quickly as the endorphins and adrenaline being produced by your body kick in.
It's not about the pain for us, but rather, the rewards of overcoming it; pain is a concept in your head, and the only thing stopping you from getting past it, is you.

You can attend a suspension event! We regularly have private sessions as well as some public ones.
Private sessions are more intimate and involve small groups of people.
Public events often involve performances and live installations.
Occasionally we will have public days that are not shows, where many people will suspend (both first timers and otherwise).
