Addressing the dysfunction can help regain control

Diastasis occurs when the abdominal muscles become separated, which can cause issues and contribute to the discomfort of pelvic floor dysfunction. This condition often leads to symptoms such as urinary incontinence, pelvic pain, and sexual dysfunction, significantly impacting one’s quality of life. At our Finchley Central studio, we provide a comprehensive approach that utilizes pilates exercises to restore and improve pelvic floor function.  

Improved Quality of Life

Pilates helps restore function and can enhance comfort, confidence, and overall well-being. Don’t let bladder and bowel control issues dictate your daily routine. Our tailored treatment plans address the root causes of diastasis and how it may relate to your symptoms.  By incorporating Pilates exercises specifically designed for pelvic health, individuals can experience a remarkable improvement in their overall well-being.


Enhanced Sexual Health and Intimacy

Living with diastasis can significantly impact one’s quality of life. Pilates exercises specifically designed for diastasis, focuses on strengthening the core muscles, including the deep abdominal muscles, which are essential for pelvic floor recovery. Through targeted movements, Pilates helps to restore alignment, improve posture, and promote a stronger and more stable core. This, in turn, can alleviate the physical discomfort and limitations often associated with intimacy

I had one to one zoom sessions with Heidi during lockdown to work on my diastasis recti and to try and improve residual pelvic pain following two pregnancies in quick succession. She is so patient and understanding and didn’t stop working to personalise my tuition so it was appropriate for my very beginner and limited capabilities. I learnt a lot of techniques of how to be mindful of the practice in day to day life and I started to feel improvements in just six sessions although I still have a long way to go. I just wish I lived in London so I could continue with Heidi post lockdown face to face!.


I have just complete a course of six sessions on a 1:1 basis with Heidi. After three big babies in three years, diagnosed DR, and an ACL repair operation, I was really struggling with my mobility. After two sessions, I had my WOW moment; being able to walk downstairs properly instead of gingerly taking one step at a time. After six sessions, I feel so much stronger, mentally and physically. I am looking forward to continuing building my strength working with Heidi. She is dedicated, kind, knowledgeable and empathetic. I cannot recommend her highly enough.
