In this 2-Part Workshop, you’ll learn all about diastasis recti, including how you can diagnose it, what you really need to know (SPOILER: it’s not all about the gap) and how to manage this alongside the realities of everyday life. We’ll also take you through practical exercises to strengthen your deep core muscles and improve your diastasis.
For some women, they might not even realise they have a diastasis, but for some, it might be a contributing factor to back pain, pelvic instability and can even increase your likelihood of suffering from a hernia.
It’s important to note, that no matter how long ago you had your baby, there are still things you can do to improve this condition.
Part 1: The Truth about Diastasis
What is it, why does it happen, do I have it, how does it affect my body and why it’s not all about the gap. We’ll take you through different approaches to improving this and the results you might expect. It’s a deep-dive into what you really need to know about diastasis recti.
Part 2: Managing a Diastasis
Understand how you can manage your diastasis on a daily basis while not stopping doing all the things you want to. Plus, practical tips and exercises to help strengthen that area.
Who should attend: If you’ve been diagnosed with a diastasis, are wondering if you have one or are just interested in the subject. Personal Trainers and health professionals welcome. Suitable from 6 weeks after birth.
How much? £25 for one workshop, £42 for both

The workshop will be run by Noëllie Berthelot from My Wellness Centre and Eliza Flynn from The Warrior Method.
Noëllie is from France where she studied Physiotherapy at the Institut de Formation en Masso-Kinesitherapie (IFMK). She obtained her Physiotherapy Diploma in 2015.
She then gained experience in the various fields of physiotherapy such as paediatrics where she treated respiratory dysfunctions, torticollis and baby flat head in private practices.
Noëllie gained her diploma in women’s health and pelvic floor rehabilitation and has since developed her skills in this field; training in post-surgery rehabilitation for breast cancer patients, pelvic floor rehabilitation, and the Hypopressive Method to treat abdominal separation.
Noëllie is also a fully qualified pilates instructor.
Noëllie speaks French and English and is fully registered with the HCPC (Health and Care Professions Council), CSP (Chartered Society of Physiotherapy) and the POGP (Pelvic Obstetric & Gyneacological Physiotherapy).
Eliza is a mum of two who soon realised after her first little boy was born that motherhood required more emotional and physical strength than she anticipated! She helps post-natal women understand how their body has changed after pregnancy and birth, determine what’s limiting them and challenging that through mental and physical exercises.
Eliza is a pre and post-natal personal trainer with additional training under Jenny Burrell, a leading practitioner and educator in women’s health. She is especially invested in helping women feel more confident and strong in their own bodies. Eliza holds group classes and works on an individual basis with clients also.
