Start with Universe – Structure (Part 3)


Jordan Terry   Part 1 of this series. Part 2 of this series.   “Tensegrity in this sense is an applied principle– a map of the nature of structure.” In my opinion, this is right in line with Gary Ward and his Flow Motion Model, which provides a map to human structure and movement. As […]

Start with Universe – Structure (Part 2)


Jordan Terry Part 1 of this series.   “Homeostasis represents a self-organized system derived from the many complex interacting dynamic equilibria necessary to maintain life. Stress initially drives this system toward chaos, but as with all self-organized systems it resists perturbation by generating either short-term compensations (if the initial stressor is resolved) or long-term compensations […]

Start with Universe – Structure (Part 1)


Jordan Terry   “Start With Universe” – Buckminster Fuller “One of Bucky’s primary tenets is, `Start with Universe.’ The initial relevant context is the whole Universe, and from there you peel away irrelevancies until you find the scale and relationships that are most relevant to the inquiry at hand. As a comprehensivist, he was naturally […]

The Interesting Science Behind Functional Range Conditioning

Interesting Science

Christine Ruffolo   Functional Range Conditioning (FRC) is a system of creating, controlling, and expanding useable range of motion, defined as mobility. Unlike flexibility which is typically achieved passively, FRC uses tension and isometrics to minimize neurological safeguards that inhibit mobility in the first place. It is designed to progressively convince the brain to release […]
