The Center Method for Diastasis Recti Recovery™
(NOT a Pilates based program and therefore open to everyone)
Diastasis Recti is a condition that has been around for a long time but has only gained recognition recently as more and more pregnant and post partum women are asking the question “What is WRONG with my tummy?” Although diastasis can happen during a pregnancy and/or during the birthing process itself, it is by no means exclusive to this group. Men and children may also suffer from this condition.
Diastasis Recti may occur during excessive abdominal exercise and incorrect recruitment of the abdominal muscles whenever exertion is placed on the torso, such as in heavy lifting. Understanding the role of the abdominals during pregnancy and how to maintain their integrity is an essential part of the pregnant woman’s Fitness, Pilates, Yoga or any other exercise routine.
Instructors from all disciplines and their clients will benefit from educating themselves on this condition and how exercise affects it.
