Great, let us know how you are doing in the Iyengar class,I mentioned Viniyoga because there are good dvds for the back. Common sense is a very good advise, our bodies always let us know what is good for them. Happy Yoga Journey. Join us in the monthly challenge, inspire and be inspired by what others do. Enjoy your new mat!

Thank you, that was very interesting about the Viniyoga. When I went to the trial class they did ask if there were any injuries or anything, so I did consult the instructor first. I am planning to go to a Iyengar class tomorrow, am looking forward to that very much. Still doing my videos, & being careful. The doctor just told me to use common sense, if something doesn't feel right I don't do it. That's been working so far. Thanks for your input, good wishes & the yoga mat, the one I ordered from Amazon should be getting here today!
Namaste!

Hope you have talked to your doctor about starting a yoga practice, a PT can guide you to the poses that are good for your situation and at the studio you should have a talk with the certified instructor so he/she could have a program for you. Restorative Yoga sounds good. Have you heard of Viniyoga?

I had back surgery at the end of May, I've been gradually increasing my activity as recommended. I decided yoga would be a very good thing for me to do, I've thought that for many years but finally decided to do something about it. I have a one month membership at a local studio(one of those discount deals, nice studio but I can't afford the regular prices). I figure that will be a good start, after that, videos. I actually have been doing one for hands, wrists & forearms, as well as a shoulder one, both very short. I hope I can stick with this because I'm pretty sure it will do me a lot of good. I'm thinking of starting my first class this week, either restorative or Iyengar. Looking forward to feeling better, oh yeah, Namaste! :)
