I’ve been wanting to try out tensegrity since seeing it listed at the Quest natural health show four years ago, but circumstances have prevented me from trying it out till now. So equipped with precious little knowledge about the practise and a healthy dose of curiosity, I went to the Bristol Tensegrity group last Sunday at the Wilder Street studio.
Tensegrity is a shamanic practise, the modern form of which orginated with Don Juan Matus. He then passed it onto four of his apprentices, including Carlos Castenada. The goal of tensegrity is the re-unification of the physical and energetic bodies. It includes the art of magical passes which are positions and movements of the body and breathe. Like a kind of shamanic tai-chi.
Guided by the ever patient Ana I loved the movements and the flowing energy and elegance of the form. Although I felt a little overwhelmed when I realised how much there was to it all. But afterwards as I drove home, I realised that I was feeling lighter and more positive than I’d done in ages.
Bristol tensegrity group meets at the Wilder St studio, Wilder St, Stokes Croft on Sundays at 11am. Email firstname.lastname@example.org for more details.
