Mind the Gap:

Understanding and Treating

Diastasis Recti

Saturday, May 18th from 2 to 4pm

Instructor: Kerri Maskol

Cost: $45, ($5 off if you register before may use promo code earlybird5)

In this workshop we will look at the underlying causes of Diastasis Recti (DR), defined as an unnatural separation of the abdominal wall. You will learn simple exercises and lifestyle changes to help strengthen abdominals and 'close the gap'. DR often occurs during or after pregnancy, but it can also affect women who haven't been pregnant, and even men. This workshop is for anyone suffering from abdominal separation, abdominal weakness, or back pain.

Kerri is a Pilates teacher and movement educator. She specializes in prenatal and postpartum Pilates, and has studied with Katy Bowman, biomechanist and author of Diastasis Recti- The Whole-Body Solution to Abdominal Weakness and Separation

Chronic areas of tension and discomfort are familiar to many of us. There may be several pieces to unraveling these patterns for each individual. This can potentially feel daunting at times. How can we meet these challenges? What can be done right now, simply, to help make relieving changes more accessible?

In this two part workshop, we will address common focal points of carried tension and discomfort:
1) The Neck and Shoulders
2) The Hips and Lower Back
We will explore the role of the body as a whole, in providing support, as well as bringing a deeper focus into each area of topic. We will address some common road blocks to consistent practice, and walk away with tools to bring more ease into daily life. A handout will be given, with a simple guide to begin, or to add to your home practice.
