Gentle Core Work

Today in Mom and Baby Yoga we spent some time chatting about diastasis recti and exercises that we should avoid. This is an example of a gentle core exercise that is safe for most cases of diastasis.

Use the exhale breath for each movement, and pause in between to inhale. As you exhale, focus on drawing the lower belly in, and gently engaging and drawing up on the pelvic floor.

If this feels challenging, or you notice doming (they aren’t laying flat, and there is a bulge in the centre) of the abdominals, try placing both feet on the ground and lift one foot at a time instead of lowering from inverted table.
