Many of us suffer from a weak core and many mums also have Diastasis Recti (abdominal separation) a condition most commonly caused by pregnancy.
A weak core can get worse over time, resulting in lower back pain, sore hips, digestive issues like bloating, pelvic floor problems and a pooch or ‘mummy tummy’ that no amount of diet or exercise will shift.
If you suffer from a weak core or abdominal separation, it is important when doing Pilates (or any other kind of core workout), to do safe, core strengthening exercises that will not make your separation worse.
For the next 10 days, Pilates instructor and Diastasis Rehab specialist, Lana Dawkins, will teach you one new Pilates exercise each day. All these exercises are safe to do if you have Diastasis Recti.
On Day 11, you can sign up for the 20-minute Restore Your Core Workout! This workout is free and combines all the exercises into one workout – we recommend you do it 2-3 times a week to restore and maintain your core strength.
In this introductory video, Lana explains what Diastasis Recti is and what to expect in the 10 Day Restore Your Core Program.
