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.

I'm not sure if you're still reading comments on this blog, as it hasn't been updated in some time, but I'd love to chat with you about methods you've tried. I'm a fitness competitor and mother of two. Tightening skin is my mission and I've tried *lots* of approaches. I'm considering some more expensive techniques to address this concern, which is why I so appreciate your feedback regarding the Venus Freeze procedure. I'd love to compare notes.
