Designed for Fitness, Pilates and Yoga Professionals, this course investigates the history, anatomy and epidemic of diastasis recti commonly known as a separation of the rectus abdominus muscles. Detailed information on the anatomy and fascial connections through the pelvic floor are an important component of this course.
Utilizing breathwork, pelvic floor information, whole body movement and myofascial release techniques, this rehabilitative course equips you with the skills you need to help your clients release, realign and restore the core musculature.
The program offers a series of deep stabilizing exercises with progressions that will allow you to progress towards your regular exercise program, if that is your goal. The deep understanding of the working of your body will ensure the prevention of a recurrence of this condition.
