Diastasis Done Differently

A practical, interactive & research-based approach to Diastasis Rectus Abdominus

With Antony Lo


Diastasis Done Differently

A practical, interactive approach to Diastasis. The content is clinically relevant, practical and based on the most recent research.


Upon completion of this course, participants will learn how to:

  • Evaluate Diastasis Rectus Abdominis (DRA) using a biopsychosocial framework
  • Construct a person-centered approach to the assessment and management of a person with DRA
  • Develop a systematic process to reframing what Diastasis Rectus Abdominis means from a theoretical and clinical perspective


Have you noticed just how HOT diastasis is right now?! Everyone has a program or course or book to sell about it…including me! The problem is that people managing Diastasis Rectus Abdominis (DRA) are confused because there are so many mixed messages floating around out there.

I have found that taking a step back and focusing on the key principles of assessment and management allows us to see the “problem” of DRA differently. By challenging the assumptions which help form our Beliefs, Attitudes, Meaning, and Story (BAMS), we are able to see how these BAMS affect our behaviour – the language we use, the choices we make and the advice we give. By reframing what having DRA means, we have a chance of changing the experience for millions of women

Traditional approaches to Diastasis Rectus Abdominis is to try to remember as much of the anatomy as possible, learn how to isolate different muscles, breathe differently, and perform low level exercises…and whilst this may work for many, there are many who struggle with this.

In this course, a practical, interactive approach to Diastasis Rectus Abdominis is taken. The content is clinically relevant, practical and based on the most recent research.

Are you ready to approach DRA differently? Are you ready to leave the fear and complexity behind? If so, then this is the course for you!

If you cannot attend this LIVE IN-PERSON course then we recommend Diastasis Reframed – a self-paced course.
