KT tape and Yoga

It's been a long time since I last wrote so let's back up.
Stomach. I tried KT tape back in September 2013.
I had gone to the chiropractor about a hip flexor pain and they recommended it. So I thought it might work on my Diastasis Recti too.

Maybe it would have if I didn't sweat, but once I went to a yoga class it would fall right off.
Fail.


As of February 2014 I have exclusively been doing yoga 5-6 days a week.
I have found myself being happy with my body and I don't have the need to do any other form of exercise anymore.

It's been amazing to see my journey unfold in 2 different ways.
1. I no longer worry about what my body looks like in the mirror. I know I'm not perfect, but I don't dwell on the imperfections.



2. It's been amazing to see how much progress my body has made in a short period of time. I used to not be able to lift my head off the ground in back bend and slowly but surely I've opened up. I also can do the splits for the first time in my life. I remember trying as a teenager so I could be on the dance line at school, but never could. Now at age 30 I can do the splits! Crazy.

This is really random, but I came across your blog because I was looking for ways to help diastasis recti. I have two little ones. Anyway, you're very inspiring and you have a great body. Just looking for a practical tip: do you practice at home with the kids around, or do you go out to classes at a studio every day ($), or do you have a tape you follow? Just curious. I used to do yoga regularly but I've been sporadic about it for years now. I have a just-1 year old and a 3 year old.
