Tensegrity restorative series workshop
19/11/2016 at 14:00-17:30
Let your movement become more fluid and organic
Date: Saturday 19th November
Time: 2 – 5.30 pm
With: Eveline Torres and Marta Font
The Tensegrity restorative series are sequences of movements designed to support and enrich the possibilities of moving effortlessly and from the center.
Tensegrity is a compound word from “tension” and “integrity”. The practice of tensegrity is based on an optimal use of muscles and bones, a system that supports the stability of our postures. It trains the more subtle muscles and teaches you how to rely on your bones as support in your asana’s.
This workshop is specially addressed to yoga practitioners and body workers. It will provide good therapeutic tools to teach in yoga lessons and to apply to your own practice and use as a therapist.
What to expect:
We slowly build up the class in a way you are prepared to do the Tensegrity serie, as movement in meditation, avoiding working only in a mechanical way:
- Introduction of the concept of Tensegrity
- Cleansing practices: the vayu’s and udyana banda (breathing and opening up meridians)
- Sharpen focus and mind by meditation
- Pranayama practices (breathing) to be more grounded and to activate our fire.
- Practice of the Tensegrity restorative series.
- A flow of asanas applying the principles of Tensegrity.

**The founder of the tensegrity series, Gioia Irwin, puts it this way:
“Imagine a cloverleaf at a highway junction. None of the roadways touch one another, the cars move freely along the lines. Over the years our facial bands often sink into one another through inactivity, improper use, injury, emotional holding etc, in turn creating adhesions.
The goal of practicing the Tensegrity Series is to loosen and separate the fascia lines from one another, so that “the cars”, the energy conduction can be appropriate, light, loose, easy. In this way proper connections can be made throughout the body.”
