Hi, I'm Amy Newman, fitness expert for Gold's Gym and creator of The Perfect 10 Workout. And I'm going to show you how you can do some yoga after hernia operation. First of all when you start yoga after you've had an operation you want to make sure that you've consulted your doctor and it's AOK for you to do some yoga. But you want to do it very gently. First of all sitting in the easy pose is a wonderful way just to relax, and to release, and to breathe. Getting your mind relaxed is hard to do after you've had surgery. Listen to your breathing and breath deep. Some light exercises that you could do are stretching your leg out. Reaching your arms around, stretching forward towards your foot. Just very gentle. Never want to go too far. Just breathe, stretch through the head. Stretch through the back of the leg pressing through the heel. Breathe deep. You can walk your hands past your leg to do a little stretch, a little twist, slight twist. Then come back in bend that knee. Bring it in. Reach your arms around inhaling, reaching out exhaling for your foot. Stretch through the head, neck is long, shoulders in. Breathe deep. Walk your hands out to the side for a slight stretch. And then come back through to the feet. Breathe. Bring your leg in. Bring the soles of your feet together, knees apart. And gently butterfly open. Then cross your legs and slowly slide out just relaxing. Gently laying over your feet breathe deep. Don't bend too far. Roll up very slowly up inhaling. Switch legs, cross the other in front. Stretch out exhaling. And rolling up. I'm Amy Newman, and those are some poses you can do for yoga after you've had a hernia operation.
