Yoga after hip replacement at 60 yrs. old Join this Group

Hip replacement at 60 and doing full yoga poses again.

By April 11, 2015 - 3:21pm

I'm 5 months out of a hip replacement anterior approach. I loved yoga and have started back. At 60 I was still doing a full forward bend, full split, etc. They said my flexibility is working against me. I'm doing squats, lunges, and taking full weight training classes. Any input would be appreciated, Leah

Hi Leah

Thanks for your post, I love yoga too, even if I'm not the most flexible. 

I would continue to do adaptive yoga until your body is ready for more. 

What issue are you having exactly - you didn't really say?
