The burgeoning science of biotensegrity represents a radical shift for structural biology and challenges the assumptions of classical biomechanics. It has already influenced research in cell biology, sports science, and robotics, and provides a fresh context for re-thinking our understanding of human movement, but its complexities can be formidable.
In Everything Moves, Susan Lowell de Solórzano shares her understanding of biotensegrity as developed over years of direct study with the concept’s originator, Stephen M. Levin. Biotensegrity becomes accessible experientially, yet without shying away from the complexities involved. The material presented is suitable for coaches and movement teachers new to biotensegrity as well as those with more advanced levels of understanding. Whether their focus is performance, sports, Alexander Technique, Feldenkrais, yoga, Pilates, martial arts, or dance, any arena in which bodies move can be informed by Everything Moves.
Susan C Lowell de Solórzano has an MA, Human Development & Education with a focus on kinesthetic learning, she is certified as a Level III T’ai Chi instructor by the American T’ai Chi & Qi Gong Association, and is a certified FlexAware teacher. Since 2012 she has been an associate of Dr Stephen M Levin, originator of the theory of biotensegrity. Susan is a co-founder and Head Organizer, DC BIG (Washington, DC Biotensegrity Interest Group; est. 2012) and co-founder of the Stephen M Levin Biotensegrity Archive.
