I receive a lot of emails and messages with questions about Diastasis Recti.
I’ve done a tutorial post on how to check for it and what to avoid if you’re dealing with abdominal separation after pregnancy. And I do try to provide as much information as possible to help women continue with Pilates workout in a safe and effective way that won’t make their abdominal separation worse. But I often turn to the true experts when it comes to healing DR properly – and one person I really respect in this arena is Wendy Powell.
Here’s an infographic from Wendy over at Mutu System, who specializes in helping women real their bodies from the inside out.
What I love about Wendy’s approach is that she focuses on restoring proper alignment and total body functioning. She’s not just focused on the abs – because what we know about the body is that it works as a WHOLE.
You cannot heal Diastasis Recti by focusing on your abs alone.
You’ll have much more success by taking your whole body into account, improving alignment, restoring proper muscle function through functional exercise and paying attention to your daily habits.
Wendy has spent a great deal of time interviewing experts and gathering the best information possible to help women restore their cores after pregnancy and I love supporting her as an affiliate.
