Thank You :-) I do have a fairly good imagination and can usually call to mind things fairly easily so to imagine the poses just might help too :-) Thank You :-)

I am still so new to yoga and only know a handful of poses so anything shared will be much appreciated and I will be talking with the surgeon about doing any yoga post-surgery and how long I might have to wait.

Well, neither does bathing -
that's why it's recommended daily.

Chrissi, first and foremost, ask your doctor/ surgeon about activity after your surgery before you listen to anyone else! Secondly since yoga is about listening and really hearing what your body is telling you, do what feels safe and painless. Remember in yoga: No pain - no pain.
Secondly, remember you can get a lot out of breathing exercises. If you need some, check out the yoga journal site. Also, believe it or not, combining breathing with imagining your body in the pose can also be very useful.
BTW, I am a 200 hr. RYT (registered yoga teacher) and a yoga wellness coach.

Lost 65 lbs and maintained since 2006.

Greetings Yoga Lovers ~

I am going to be having surgery in the next few weeks to remove my gallbladder. I am just starting to get into doing yoga and am enjoying it so much! But, with the surgery coming up, I know I'll have to either stop my routine for awhile or adapt it. That's where I'd like your ideas.

Are there any extremely gentle poses that might be possible to do in the week or so after my surgery?? I know Corpse Pose would be safe enough, and I'm thinking modified Child's Pose (with pillows supporting my midsection) would also work, but, what else could I do??

Thank You all in advance for your time.

In Gratitude & Love,
Chrissi
