Tension is a dreamlike and calming tying space in Montreal. Its warmth and comfort will charm you as soon as you step in. Built and organized to accomodate shibari practices and classes, its Japanese inspired aesthetic provides a calm environment in which to explore rope bondage.

We strive to create an environment free of racism, sexism, homophobia, and transphobia. It is important to us to promote inclusivity, body-positivity, and staying humble in our learning, to name a few.
