Understanding (bio)tensegrity for movement professionals

In Susan Lowell de Solórzano’s new book Everything Moves: How biotensegrity informs human movement Susan and her contributors deliver an understanding of and respect for biotensegrity, and the rich rewards for movement professionals of developing their understanding and applying it in practice. She writes…


Tensegrity cannot be conveyed on paper or through words. Although it is possible to create theoretical paper and computer models of tensegrities without ever having held one, only through contact with a tangible tensegrity can we develop an understanding of this new structural paradigm…

Movement teachers and therapists know that there is no substitute for experiential understanding. The kind of learning we do through our hands and bodies involves direct physical signaling, without the intermediary of words. To investigate tensegrity and apply what you learn to biotensegrity and human movement, you need a model, and it needs to be a physical model that you can manipulate and experience.
