Personal Trainer

Orinda (San Francisco)CA, USA

Cheryl has been a certified personal trainer, specializing in pre/postnatal fitness instructor since 2006. She is honored to be the first Licensee in the State of California since 2011.She has been an active athlete her entire life participating in swimming, soccer and high jump growing up, and she played Division 1 NCAA soccer at UCLA. Cheryl has 3 young children and found it relatively easy to get back in shape after pregnancy but found it very difficult to get any positive results in her abdominal area. After having her 2nd child, Cheryl knew she had a significant Diastasis but failed to address it because she was told on countless occasions by fitness and medical professionals that surgery was the only option. She also felt like since she was going to have more children, she should just wait to address the problem which turned out to be a mistake because with each pregnancy a Diastasis gets worse. After having her 3rd child, and trying several core exercise routines including Pilates, yoga, bar based classes, boot camps, crunches, and planks, she found that not only was her belly not getting smaller, it was getting worse!!! She also began to suffer from significant lower back pain. After searching extensively on the Internet and seeing such positive feedback about the Tupler Technique®, she sought the help of Julie Tupler, RN, in the spring. Her Diastasis has gone from a whopping 10-finger separation, to less than a 3-finger separation in less than 10 weeks!!Since learning the Tupler Technique® and incorporating it into her daily routine, Cheryl now realizes that by waiting between each pregnancy and doing core exercises incorrectly, she only made her Diastasis worse. She is determined to educate both women and men who suffer from Diastasis Recti and the ill effects associated with an abdominal separation and help them avoid the same mistakes she made. Tupler Technique® has positively changed her body, the way she exercises and lives her life. She is honored to be the first Trained Professional in the State of California. She hopes she can share this revolutionary technique with you.Cheryl@abseparationrehab.com||www.abseparationrehab.com

Luanne Sforza, PT, GCFP

Physical Therapist


Luanne, physical therapist, graduated from SUNY Buffalo over 35 years ago and has a specialty in orthopedic, musculoskeletal and sports injuries. Her treatment approach is unique in that she is also a certified Feldenkrais? practitioner, and skillfully integrates both in her hands-on, patient care. Several years ago Luanne began noticing her own pelvic floor weakness and began taking PT and Feldenkrais courses in the "missing link", the pelvic floor. Incorporating pelvic floor exercises simultaneously with the Tupler Technique® exercises has enabled her to successfully address incontinence and abdominal diastasis. Luanne was fortunate to have given birth to two beautiful children, 25 and 19 years ago. At that time she addressed her own abdominal weakness with core strengthening using Pilate’s equipment and mat classes, as little was known of diastasis recti. Fortunately she met Julie Tupler RN, invited her to lecture at a former PT practice and was quite surprised to learn of having an abdominal diastasis! Wanting to close her diastasis she eventually tried the Tupler Technique® Program but did not strictly adhere to the exercise program nor was convinced of the need to wear a splint 24/7. Hence there was no change in her recti diastasis until completing the Tupler Technique® Licensing program and incorporating the full, 4 part program into her own life- splint, exercise and all! Impressed with the visible and measured positive changes in her own belly, her two case studies, and others in her training, Luanne remains convinced that all 4 parts of the Tupler Technique® is necessary to close an abdominal diastasis. And is witness to the fact that it can be achieved no matter how long you have had one! Luanne is the owner of a PT private practice deservedly named, Integrative Physical Therapy originally located in NYC and Westchester. In the early part of 2015 she merged the NYC office with Jill Hoefs, owner of Body Align PT on Union Square, and continues a solo practice at her home in Danbury, C.T.

Over the next few years she resumed doing crunches, forward cross-over crunches, backward bending over exercise balls, and the list goes on!! Her diastasis got worse!!! That was when she decided to get serious about the Tupler Technique® and took the Tupler Technique® professional training program.

Elizabeth "Liz" Kurau is a passionate certified Pilates instructor who is a true believer in the Pilates method and its benefits. Liz has taught group classes for years but holds a special place in her heart for private training, where she believes the greatest individual growth and progress can be gained. "I am fueled by working in tandem with my clients, turning their mental and physical limitations into achievements together."Her mind was blown when her Pilates mentor (who went through the Tupler Technique® program as a client) taught her a single Tupler Technique® exercise after class one day. It was unlike anything she had ever felt in her abdominals before (and this girl has done LOTS of ab work)! Liz was at once determined to discover more about diastasis recti. She learned of its ties to lower belly pooch, and that it is often the stubborn cause of clients putting in tons of hard work but not seeing results on that specific area of the body. After devouring the research-based evidence ondiastasisrehab.com she knew that this was something that needed to be talked about and shared on a broader scope, particularly together with the Pilates method. In just 6 weeks Liz successfully closed her own diastasis as well as reversed the umbilical hernia of her case study.She is thrilled to educate and help those around her heal not only their separated muscles, but their relationship with their mind and body.

She has been a Registered Yoga Teacher since 2009, specializing in postnatal and children's yoga. In addition, Monet is the founder of Life is Energy™, a service that promotes energy health and wellness for all ages. Monet's personal experience with the Tupler Technique® inspired her to embark on sharing this incredible program with others! In 2011 a year after her first child was born, she decided to expand her yoga practice and take a postnatal yoga training. Here, she learned the term "diastasis rectI" for the first time despite her experience as a nurse. During the training she was measured incorrectly. She was told that she had a small diastasis and to wear a compression binder. In the same training, she was taught multiple exercises that she later learned actually make a diastasis worse! After her second birth, in 2013, she began to notice that she awoke with back pain nearly every morning and felt like her core was numb and not connected. Although this was affecting her self-esteem and causing her physical discomfort, she chalked it up to "mommyhood" and figured that she just had to live with it. Occasionally she would wonder if any of her ailments were related to her diastasis, but these thoughts were fleeting and she felt helpless. It seemed as though there was no solution; classic abdominal exercises like planks and crunches didn't help, nor did losing weight. Finally after three years, she became fed up with feeling helpless and began to research diastasis recti and came across the Tupler Technique®. She attended an Everybelly®Seminar and decided to sign up for the training program. Now knowing she had a severe diastasis, she began the program as part of her training program and found it life changing. It went far beyond seeing a difference when she looked in the mirror, She had re- established her core, a source of both physical and emotional strength. She is honored to have come across a program that makes such a difference and is excited to teach the Tupler Technique® to others and share its transforming effects!!

Joy Dejoras, RN

Registered Nurse

Greystanes, Sydney, New South Wales, Australia

Joy Dejoras is a Registered Nurse and a mother of three, currently living in New South Wales, Australia. Years after her last pregnancy, she still had a mummy tummy that would just not go away, constant bloating and recurring lower back pains. These symptoms have significantly affected her health and work-life balance due to having regular massage treatments to temporarily relieve lower back pains and having to take regular medications to counter the GI issues. Initially, she had no idea of her 6-finger abdominal separation (diastasis), until she checked for her diastasis after hearing about the Tupler Technique and how it helps to flatten your mummy tummy. Once she knew about diastasis, the symptoms she had been suffering from started to make sense. She then applied to be a Professional Tupler Technique Trainer and by doing the program, reduced her diastasis size from 6 to 3, experienced no more lower back pains and bloating, and an added bonus of her waistline being reduced from 36” to 32” within 6 weeks and continually getting smaller! Convinced by the impressive results, she is determined to help other mums, dads, kids, and anyone who are suffering from the side effects of Diastasis recti

Having a particular passion for women’s health, Kristen noticed a strong trend in treating women for recurrent back injuries and sprains, pelvic pain and pelvic floor issues. These women would respond well to treatment; however, their complaints were recurrent. She felt strongly that if they had improved muscular support of the abdominals, their activities of daily living would be easier and they would experience less pain and dysfunction. Assessment of these women showed a strong correlation with having diastasis recti. Kristen went in search of the best practice treatment options and was drawn strongly to training with Julie Tupler to become a Tupler Technique Trained Professional. Kristen is excited to be able to provide her patients with the Tupler Technique and to educate her pilates practitioners within her practice so that they can provide diastasis safe pilates classes.

Andrea Cechurova, CPT

Personal Trainer

Prague, Czech Republic

Andrea is a certified Personal Trainer and the only licensed provider of the Tupler Technique® in Central and Eastern Europe. As pregnant, Andrea was often in the gym doing planks and crunches and practicing yoga, believing that this is the way which would keep her in shape. After her child was born, she wanted to regain a flat tummy again and started doing lots of abdominal exercises including sit ups, crunches and planks. One year after giving birth she was still at the same weight as before pregnancy but she still looked pregnant. The tummy did not improve! Andrea was desperate and started searching what the problem could be and she realized that the problem is called Diastasis Recti. She had never heard about it and consulted the problem with her gynecologist, but was told that the plastic surgery is the only solution! It was absolutely not an option for her, so she continued to search for other possibilities. Finally, one day she found the Tupler Technique®, which seemed to be the only option that could work. After she tried the technique, she lost 6 cm in her waist in just 6 weeks and regained an innie belly button.

Shortly after, she learnt about Diastasis Recti and was shocked to know that in her career as a fitness trainer, there was not much awareness about this subject. Even the doctors didn't have a clear picture about it. Since learning about the Tupler Technique® and incorporating it in her own life, Ritu realized that by doing core exercises incorrectly throughout her life, which actually caused more harm to herself than good. She started her page on her social media handle "FIT MOMS FITTER HOMES" with the aim of educating women about the right techniques and exercises which needs to be done during pre and post-natal. She is now determined to educate all men and women and create awareness about the ill effects of having abdominal separation. She believes that if each individual incorporates Tupler Technique® in their day to day activities, then they can easily avoid and get rid of various problems like back, hip pain and other GI Issues, which seems to be very common these days. Tupler Technique® has changed her total outlook of how an ideal core workout should be and how she can incorporate the same in other exercises. The Tupler Technique® made her realize the power of the mind and how muscle-mind connection can play a crucial role in strengthening our abdominals. She feels proud to be the first Indian and be a part of this revolutionary movement of creating awareness about Diastasis Recti in her country. She hopes that she can share this technique with everyone she meets.

Veenu Goenka, CFP

Veenu Goenka is a Certified Fitness Professional through American Council on Exercise (ACE). She believes in healthy and mindful eating and is passionate about fitness. Equipped with an MBA degree, she had started her career as an entrepreneur. In her first pregnancy, she delivered a 4.7 kg baby. For many years post that, in spite of working out everyday and losing all the baby weight, she tried but just could not get rid of a protruding belly. Her second pregnancy made it even worse. For almost 10 years she searched everywhere for a solution to the problem she had with her belly which included consulting with many doctors. Unfortunately, because of nonawareness and lack of knowledge on this subject in India, she was never correctly diagnosed for having an abdominal separation. Eventually, she was diagnosed with umbilical hernia, where the only option presented to her was to go in for an abdominal surgery. That lit a fire in her to hunt for a non-surgical solution for abdominal separation which WORKS!! She didn’t want any other woman with a similar condition, to suffer like her. Her quest led her to the Tupler Technique, and had herself trained as a certified Tupler Technique Professional. Now, she wants to spread awareness about Diastasis Recti and how it creates a dysfunctional core and many other issues in the body. She wants to help every woman who wonders why she still looks pregnant by making them aware of their condition and working with them to fix it.

Kirsten Zimmermann


Zürich, Switzerland

Kirsten has been a midwife since 2001, working at delivery ward and in maternity at Klinik Im Park hospital in Zürich. In addition to pregnancy check-ups, natural births, c-sections and post-natal care, she has been teaching pre and postnatal classes for over 13 years, with her goal being to help the mother regain core and pelvic floor strength. She noticed the lack of information and knowledge of medical professionals and physiotherapists in this area when she realized she had no idea where to send the clients to heal it. In Switzerland, the condition is often ignored, and therefore, information about the condition of a diastasis is rare. Even more rare are therapists that know how to treat it. She decided to learn as much as she could and began to work with clients that had diastasis. In 2015, Kirsten and a colleague founded the one and only individual diastasis consultation in Switzerland, at Hirslanden Klinik Im Park in Zürich, treating successfully women with diastasis recti in individualized consultations. After learning about the Tupler Technique® and reading Together Tummy® she knew that the Tupler Technique® was exactly the program she was looking for. In 2018, Kirsten became the first Tupler Technique® professional in Switzerland.

Cheryl completed her Bachelor of Health Science (Physiotherapy) in 2004 and obtained her Master in Manipulative Therapy in 2006. During her years of practice, she came across many individuals seeking treatment for diastasis recti. However, she noticed that patients had very variable outcomes after rehabilitative treatment. Cheryl first found out about the Tupler Technique® after one of her patients with severe diastasis recti reported good results with the it. Cheryl began to take note of the Tupler Technique® and was impressed by its systematic approach and effective outcomes. Noticing a high prevalence of diastasis recti and a lack of reliable non-surgical treatment options in the region, Cheryl embarked on her journey to bring the Tupler Technique® to Southeast Asia. She is now the first certified Tupler Technique® professional in the region.
