Hello Cotra and I’m no yogi and one month post op but I routinely did short, self-guided yoga sessions pre-op over the past 15 years… I’ve started doing some basics over the last 10 days… downward dog, warrior I and II, wide leg spread with support of my hands (in lieu of a hang), lying-down hamstring stetch, and sit on heels Vajrasana – kneeling pose. REAL BASICS and I’d STRONGLY SUGGEST to LET YOUR SYMPTOMS BE YOUR GUIDE…. move into a pose LIMITED-RANGE AND REAL SLOWLY and at the 1st sign of pain/discomfort, BACK OFF AND THEN HOLD. Rely on the guidance of a GREAT PT and progress REALLY SLOWLY. For me, I’m more cautious here than in my hiking, biking, and strength exercises I’ve been prescribed. BEST WISHES ON IT! Like getting “back up to running speed”… SLOW AND STEAD here!
