10 International presenters from all over the world
will share with you the new researches on the role of Fascia in woman health

In the last decade there has been a growing interest in understanding the fascia by who practice or teach motor activities.

The practical application of the information coming from the scientific community is helping to change in some paradigms in physical training, in particular of some disciplines such as Yoga and Pilates which are widely practiced by a female population.

But, in addition to the growing number of end users and female instructors, there is a considerable increase in the number of female scientists, who are providing a fundamental contribution to the research.

On the occasion of March 8, the Fascia turns Pink for the first PINK FASCIA Conference, for the women from all over the world!!!
