Tensegrity Workshop

February 18th, 4pm
Aspen, CO

Wall & Tensegrity Workshop: Tensegrity is a concept in architecture and biology where a balance of tension and compression result in maximum efficiency and economy. Dr. Chris Barnes states: "Our bodies, modern architecture, and the universe itself are governed by laws of tensegrity. The body is not a rigid skeleton with muscles and ligaments attached. It's actually a delicate balance of tensile and compressive forces that hold all the structures in perfect balance. When muscles become too strong or too weak, when ligaments are sprained, or when poor posture is the norm, we lose tensegrity. The loss of tensegrity is a leading cause of sport-related injuries and chronic pain syndromes. Whether it be an imbalance of the muscles, joints, diet, or lifestyle, restoring this balance is essential to healing." In this workshop, we will use the wall as a prop (in addition to blocks, blankets, and straps), and as a reference point to create tensegrity, stability, awareness, and integration in the body. We will create accessibility around several advance postures including arm balances and inversions using tensegrity and the wall. Come find out how to create and restore balance in your own unique body through your asana practice.
