Check yourself for diastasis

Am I a good candidate for the Tupler Technique?
          Many Many people have diastasis of the rectus abdominal muscles and don't know it and would benefit from the Tupler Technique!
  •  Postpartum women (no matter if pregnancy was days ago or 30 years ago)
  •  Pregnant women (to minimize diastasis, strengthen for labor, quicker recover) 
  •  Men :  may have it from exercise, genetics, abdominal surgery
  •  Women who have not had children (same reasons as above)
  •  Children - muscles usually come together on their own but not for all children
  • Anyone: who wants to strengthen their core  in a functional way, improve their posture, and body mechanics, and reduce back pain.
  • Anyone pre or post abdominal surgery, to better chances of surgery success and regain abdominal strength  

How do I know if I have diastasis? Can I check for this myself?
 watch this video from minute to check! (you can skip the first 3 minutes or so)
