Minimizing Diastasis Recti and the Momma Pooch For New and Postpartum Moms, with Lisa Wixted| Namaste Yoga
Saturday 8/4/18 1 – 3 PM, Sliding Scale $25 — $35.
Many new moms experience Diastasis rectus abdominis (DRA, or diastasis recti) after carrying their precious little ones. Diastasis recti, a separation of the frontal abs, can contribute to issues such as back pain, bladder leakage, sexual pain, and hernia. New moms may also experience a “mamma pooch” following pregnancy. While learning to accept and affirm our post-pregnancy bodies, we also want to do what we can to improve them, for the sake of our health and our self-esteem.
Studies show that DRA can often be significantly improved through the practice of specific breathing and exercise techniques. In this workshop, you will learn strengthening breaths, low impact movements, and yoga poses designed to help reduce diastasis recti and the mamma pooch. We will pay special attention to strengthening the obliques and transverse abs safely and effectively. You will also learn what yoga poses and activities to avoid, which may surprise you—no more crunches! We will practice ways to modify our activities to promote healing.
Wind down from your weekend with a mindful practice of gentle stretching and simple breathing.
Weekly on Sundays at Namaste. No registration required. Sundays throughout the year.
