Any advice would be appreciated.

Listen to your body! I went to a few practices after my doctor cleared me for exercise at 4 weeks. I took each pose easy at first and took note where my body says it was too much. For example, I noticed up dog was too much stretch for my abdomen so I just skipped it.
By 8 weeks I was back to regular practice doing all the poses. Good luck!

I did a few classes about 8 weeks post OP. And was back full time 3 months post op. Just know your body and don't push the pose if you're not feeling it. You will get there eventually. I am 6 months post op today and still have some difficulties with certain twisting.

Re: Yoga post hysterectomy

I was cleared to go back to yoga after 4 weeks with no restrictions. The first few classes I was cautious but my body was fine with it so I was quickly back to my normal practice. Start slow and listen to your body.

Re: Yoga post hysterectomy

I'm an instructor and I did yoga after surgery. You want to make sure that it's 6 weeks post-op

Re: Yoga post hysterectomy

You want to make sure you wait your 6 weeks. I'm in instructor and waited that long and it still had some challenges. But now it's a life line to me. I highly recommend it!

Re: Yoga post hysterectomy

My doctor had me wait 6 weeks and even then it took time to ease back in.

Re: Yoga post hysterectomy

I have been thinking I might very carefully try my once a week yin class at 4 weeks postop, waiting until 6 or 8 weeks postop for my twice a week hatha classes, and being very conservative as I ease back in. I won't hesitate to do modifications on anything which needs it while I get started- none of my classes are high intensity/fast flowing/hot classes, though the two hatha classes are certainly much more strenuous than yin. It is good for my body to do the stretching and such, but the most important benefit to me of my yoga practice is the mental benefit so even if I have to modify every pose, being able to do the quiet mind would be highly beneficial to me.

I'm only one week postop now, and am really, really looking forward to getting back to it.

Re: Yoga post hysterectomy

I'm about eight weeks out. If it weren't for quarantine, I'd be looking for a yoga, barre or Pilates class. I've missed them so much.
