Alive: Playing with Tone & Tensegrity


A tensegrity system is composed of tensile and compressive elements carefully balanced to achieve structural integrity. From our sub-cellular cytoskeleton through muscles, bones and fascia we are a tensegrity structure. These structures create the potential for our adaptation through movement ... and movement is how we navigate the temporal and spatial realms. Tone is the experience of balance in our bodies. All our systems can be supported to find balanced tone – increasing our potential to shift, perceive and create with agility.

This workshop is an opportunity for professional development as well as an introduction to Body-Mind Centering®’s approach to the inherent intelligence of the moving body. The practice offers a rich palate of experiences for both the beginner and the more experienced participant.

Body-Mind Centering® (BMC)  is a study of the experienced body in contrast to the objectified body. It is an embodied approach to learning, living and knowledge making. BMC engages the bodymind through the poetics of moving, touch and experiential anatomy, inviting change that is an integration of our physical, psychological, intellectual and imaginative life.
