Above Ground Suspension Team

English

Above Ground Suspension Team (AGST) is a body suspension team located in Jutland – the west/nothern part of Denmark.
We do outdoor suspension from trees, cubes or sctructures during summertime. During winter/autumn we offer indoor suspension in our cube.
We regularly host events and  offer private suspensions – send us a message if you are up for that.
AGST was founded by Martin, who is also a member of Body Extremes Suspension Team (BEST).
Martin have been involved in suspension for more than 10 years, and have been a practitioner since 2012.

 

What is body suspension?
Body suspension (or just suspension) is the act of hanging your body from hooks pierced through your skin.
The oldest known acts of suspension dates back more than 5000 years.
In India, body suspension was a religious act for hindus. Suspension was often performed during the Thaipusam festival, that’s still being hold today.
We also have the possibility to combine body suspension with shibari, Japanese rope bondage.
Why would anyone hang from hooks?
The same question could be asked to those who jump out of planes or from mountains, or those who run a marathon. Each person have their reasons.
For the adrenaline junkie it’s a rush that can’t be compared with anything else. For some it’s about crossing limits. For some it’s art. For some it’s a rite of passage.
Most people who try suspension, will do it again and again.
Most people who try suspension will experience a rush of endorphins.

We host suspension events and offer private suspension as well.
