ABOUT THE SYMPOSIUM Integration of Movement, Assessment & Clinical Applications

This three-day symposium marks a historical development in bodywork and movement science in Europe. Therapists and practitioners alike have long been searching for explanations and answers that make sense of the bodies they work with every day. 

Conventional anatomy books and explanations provided by classical biomechanics texts fall short of the reality that is biotensegrity.

This unique event will provide answers to the burning questions you want to ask.

Biotensegrity Experts

Leaders in the field will be presenting at this historic event, including: Dr. Steven Levin, Dr. Jean Claude Guimberteau, John Sharkey MSc, Dr. Robert Schleip

Inspiring Content

This event features practical sessions, keynote lectures, and the information and skills you need to integrate biotensegrity into your movements and therapies.

A Global Network

You will have the opportunity to engage with fellow delegates and experts from around the world in the field of biotensegrity.

EXPERIENCE CULTURE

Discover all that beautiful Prague has to offer

Prague, the “City of a Hundred Spires,” is the magnificent capital city of the Czech Republic. Bisected by the Vltava River, it is known for the Old Town Square – colorful baroque buildings, Gothic churches and the medieval Astronomical Clock, with its animated hourly show. Prague has some of the best dining and nightlife in all of Europe.

Kelly Clancy

Pre-Conference Workshop

Session 1 - Biotensegral Assessment for the Manual and Movement Therapist

This workshop is for the manual and movement therapist who is interested in learning how to assess the body using concepts based on biotensegrity principles. It introduces the student to assessment strategies which utilize biotensegrity versus biomechanics as their foundational paradigm.

9:00am - 12:00pm
speaker-1

Elizabeth Larkam

Pre-Conference Workshop

Session 1 - Biotensegrity Concepts in Motion
Animations of embryological development  illuminate the collaborative relationship of tension and compression that is the structural basis of human movement. Unique movement sequences practiced individually and with partners facilitate experiences of oscillating in non-linear, three-dimensional, continuous tension networks.

12:00pm - 1:30pm

Lunch

Kelly Clancy

Pre-Conference Workshop

Session 2 - Biotensegral Assessment for the Manual and Movement Therapist

Continuing from this morning's session you will learn how to identify and quantify primary restriction patterns which may contribute to pain, strength limitations, range of motion deficits and dysfunctional movement.

By learning to objectively test and document global restriction patterns, the therapist will learn how to use these measures as a means to inform and track their manual and movement training interventions.

1:30pm - 4:30pm
speaker-1

Elizabeth Larkam

Pre-Conference Workshop

Session 2 - Biotensegrity Model Building and Movement
Graham Scarr teaches model  building of the T-Icosahedron. The T-Icosahedron relates to the design and teaching of movement  that facilitates the collaborative relationship of tension and compression.
Movement sequences that  develop the morning material  embody principles of biotensegrity and contribute to efficiency of gait.

As this is the first ever European Biotensegrity Conference we do not recommend making any non-refundable transport or accommodation arrangements at this stage. Once we have received the minimum number of registrations we will contact all delegates who have registered to let them know that they can proceed with transport and accommodation arrangements. We will also change the text for the answer to this question.

We are delighted to bring this exciting event to Europe for the first time. To ensure its success we have tiered pricing available with heavily discounted rates for those booking earliest.
