    A video clip with appreciation to Rika from our Amherst Study Group.

    Rika writes: ” Because Dr Robert Schleip’s presentation, Fascia as a Sense Organ was at the top of the list for most popular presentation at the Feldenkrais Summit, I thought that many who attended the Summit would be fascinated in by it. Dr Schleip makes more than one appearance, as do other researchers on the fascia as well as tensegrity. ”
