Practicing Tensegrity while in Motion

Learning to maintain "suspension" and "tensegrity" will help you increase power and "athletic connection."  Intermediate and advanced levels of practice include practice of movements on a raised object.  While in motion. An example of TBT in motion is shown in Photo 11-34. The photo is of a practitioner moving on a raised platform, in this case, a repurposed telephone pole. A link to a video of the practice is included in Box 11-35.
