Some studies have found that 100% of women in their third trimester will accommodate a growing baby by overstretching the tissue that connects the abdominal muscles. Moreover, many will continue to have a gap in between the rectus abdominis (6-pack) muscles for months or years after delivery (vaginal or C-section,) reducing lumbopelvic support at a time when they need it most-- when caring for small children! Yogic techniques can jump-start the healing process and help mom find her inner core strength, which may reduce low back and pelvic pain. In this workshop Catherine will highlight relevant research and how to apply scientific evidence to a yoga practice that encourages healing and integrity of the abdominal wall to support mom’s ability to care for herself and others.
