Yoga for the Prevention & Healing of Diastasis Recti

Zürich, Switzerland

Diastasis Recti Workshop - 1-day CPD course

This one-day continuing professional development course introduces Yoga techniques for addressing Diastasis Recti, or abdominal separation, after birth. Participants will learn what Diastasis Recti is, how it manifests and  how to test for it. We will practice integrative techniques with breath focus to help restore the integrity of the linea alba, the deep abdominal core and the hammock of the pelvic floor muscles. We will learn simple guidelines for everyday life activities, carrying and lifting babies and postnatal yoga practice that will best protect the body's healing after pregnancy and birth.
