"A strong core will improve your technique, strength, and stamina, and compliment everything you do."
Do you have a weak core? Do you get a lot of back pain? Do you feel you bulge/dome when lifting or when exercising? You could have ab separation or diastasis recti.
The separation of the abdominal muscles is caused by thinning of the fascia between your muscles, often caused by too much pressure due to a growing baby.
But diastasis does not discriminate some children have it and many men with a 'beer gut' or exercising incorrectly have it. If you have a vertical bulge that appears when you do a crunch or get up from sitting or lying then you have ab separation.
Left untreated diastasis recti can lead to poor core stabilization, pelvic floor dysfunction, back and pelvic pain.
One of the best ways to fix diastasis recti is to lower the intra-abdominal pressure, and you can do that by realigning your body and finding good posture. On top of this, when we work together we design a programme tailored to you and your experiences and issues that will include:
How you breathe
How you move and align yourself daily
How to engage your true core correctly
How to relieve tension in the shoulders and jaw
How to eat right
How to nurture a healing mindset
Basic exercises that will progress as you build on your strength and functionality
Together we will work on a 1:1 program tailored to your specific needs so you can move better,
feel better and get stronger.
What to Expect
Learn how to stack your bones to for greater mobility, comfort and freedom
Knit back together
Close the gap by knitting back together those separated abs and regain core strength.
Feel strong in your body and get back to full functionality. Say goodbye to back pain and fear and say hello again to all the high impact activities you love doing.
