Alexander Technique teachers aren’t alone among somatics practitioners in thinking that tensegrity is a good model for the musculoskeletal system. In this 20-minute talk first given to Australian Alexander Technique teachers during their 2018 Science and the Alexander Technique Webinar, Patrick Johnson goes in-depth on tensegrity. He shows that the tensegrity is biomechanically suspect and should not be taken literally by Alexander technique teachers.
Note from Patrick: This video generated lots of comments when first posted on YouTube. I have since edited the video (cut a few sections that were too confrontational in tone) and taken it down from YouTube. However all comments made on the original video can be found at this link and are relevant to the current version. Feel free to comment further below!
