Conference: The Living Body from the Inside Out

This conference will be an exploration of the human body as a whole, developing the interrelationship of connective tissues through the Tensegrity Concept and the deep connection to our environment.

Beginning with an overall view of the fascia structures, we will then discuss and explore the application of the Tensegrity Concept to the human body, from the tissue structure to a cellular level.
