Movement TherapyEdit

The term tensegrity, and ideas based on tensegrity, have been adopted by a broad range of paractitioners of movement therapy, including those trained in Pilates, Rolfing, Yoga, Tai Chi, Castaneda's Magic Passes and more.

Usage by these practitioners spans a broad range, from connoting a vague idea of balance, to a specific and accurate conception of tensegrity as the structural unification of compressive and tensive forces in the practitioner's body or mind.

This page collects some examples.
