susanlanc, I've gone back to yoga very slowly-- I'm just under 4 months. Like Annie's, I don't have any restrictions, but some postop discomfort and muscle weakness has limited my practice. The first thing I did was to take a private class with a certified Iyengar instructor. The great thing about Iyengar is that they really understand anatomy and can work with you on proper positioning. I use props like blocks to get into poses, and in the beginning, I found poses that used to be simple very challenging. If you can, find someone who's familiar with whatever precautions you've been given, and they'll be able to work with you on starting to practice. Namaste!
