I am a huge yoga fan, but some of the poses caused me pain. My PT said after a month of therapy, I should be able to resume yoga.
I know downward dog, fold over, any poses that requires twisting or bending cause problems for people with herniated discs. Well...I don't have one now, because I had 2 microdiscectomies.
But I am scared to go back to yoga. What I found is that I don't realize that I have done something wrong until the next day. While doing yoga, I don't feel any pain. My yoga instructor just told me to do what I can do and stop if I am pain.
I would like to hear from people who practice yoga after lower back (herniate disc) surgery.
