What yoga poses are safe following Total Hip Replacement?

The short answer is all poses are safe for total hip replacement if you get creative and shift your thinking about what a pose should look like. The benefits of practicing yoga are rooted in awareness and focus. The shape of a pose will end up being different for...

Healing from Total Hip Replacement and how yoga can help.

Practicing yoga will help you heal! Studies show that people with bone fractures who practice pranayama (yoga breathing) and intentional relaxation (restorative yoga) experience accelerated bone healing and a reduction in pain, tenderness, and swelling. The same...

Go Slow – Build New Neural Pathways

When you learn to waltz for the first time it is natural to start by taking each step deliberately and slowly. This is how our brains and bodies learn new things. This slow patterning builds neural pathways so that after awhile, the movement becomes second nature and...

Questions for your Surgeon

"The more you understand about your total hip replacement surgery ahead of time, the better." Here is a list of questions that were important for my understanding. Look for links at the bottom for more detailed information. These questions are specifically for your...

What is the “Core?”

“Core Trunk” muscles stabilize our spine. We have muscles in our trunk in the front of, on the sides of, on the back, on the top of (diaphragm) and on the bottom of (pelvic floor) the spine. All these muscles play a role in supporting our spine and play a crucial role...
