The Center Method for Diastasis Recti Recovery™


(NOT a Pilates based program and therefore open to everyone)

Diastasis Recti Pilates Instructor Program, C-Section Pilates Teacher Program, Diastasis Recti Pilates InformationDiastasis Recti is commonly known as a separation of the rectus abdominus muscles. This condition, while not new, has gained much attention in the past few years, as more and more regular exercisers and postpartum women are recognizing that there may be a problem with their abdominals.

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 as well as during pregnancy and /or the birthing process itself.
