Michele Bond organized this event and collaborated with Dr. Schleip to deliver a spectacular experience. Michele had the opportunity to share a presentation about the embryology of fascia and how this tissue signals muscle development in fetal development.
Michele has created a series of online and live workshops to study this intriguing living biological matrix. The latest workshop is a half-day fascia lecture and practical workshop for exercise professionals.
