The relatively new science of biotensegrity constitutes a major paradigm shift in health science and biomechanics. The ancient wisdom in the classic literature associated with T'ai Chi is curiously harmonious with biotensegrity. For this reason, Susan has spent nearly a decade studying biotensegrity, most of this time as an associate of Dr. Stephen M. Levin, originator of the concept, and an understanding of biotensegrity informs our Tenleytown Tái Chi classes.
