    Found this really helpful. Don’t have prolapse (luckily) but do have diagnosis of osteoporosis
    so any yoga adjustments are great. Thanks Michelle.?

    I had been practicing the wide low squat (though unable to have the whole foot on the ground) because another channel for over 50 year olds said it’s a must do stretch. I had a hysterectomy a few months ago and dealing with pelvic floor issues. I never thought to ask the dr about that particular stretch/pose. Only restriction he said was no heavy lifting. Me and my pelvic floor thank you.

    Hi, I'm new to your channel and greatly appreciate these modifications. I had a hysterectomy 10 years ago and had a sling put in for my bladder. Are these mods also best for this stage of recovery i.e. maintence mode?

    HI Michelle, I've jist started teaching yoga and I ha e a student who has a prolapse. I read an article today that says she ever we draw in the abdominals in addition to breathing we should be lifting the pelvic floor to avoid placing extra strain on that area. Can you confirm whether this is true for someone with a pelvic prolapse. Any other tips or suggestions greatly appreciated. Also what is the best position to do pelvic strengths ing exercises. Oftentimes you see these performed from bridge pose in a yoga class but I just read that we should be softening the glutes when we do pelvic floor strengthening and you would need to engage the glutes in bridge pose. It is better just to be sitting or lying on your back? TIA! Dani

    How long do you need to modify after hysterectomy?? I'm 6weeks post surgery and would like to start going to classes at some point.

    Michelle I’ve found your videos & advise so helpful thank you.
    Question, if you use a pessary (women’s Health Physio fitted) do you still need to modify the forward folds?
    The 100’s, Bow & Plank are obvious, but the folds? In wide leg seated?
    Many thnx

    Hi i had watched another video of yours. Another question do i have to do modified ab exercises permanently now that i have a hysterectomy. Can i do squats? Is it only abs? Can i do butt bridges? Im 35yrs old and want to get back into shape but i had no idea about any of this modified exercises until i was doing planks and on my second day my surgery area was too sore to do planks. Can i do lunges? How do i modify them if im not able to? I had my hysterectomy september 2019. Will i ever be able to do the normal exercises again?

  15. Hi, my endometriosis open surgery done last 29th feb 2020. When I try this exercise? Right now I'm unable to do this. My dressing going on. Please help me.

    Mam, I had abdominal myomectomy to remove 17cm fibroid attached above uterus just 5 months back. Uterus is safe. Can you please share me good videos of doing possible kegels, abdominal exercises to get rid of fat belly and to maintain uterine hygiene.

    Lovely TY:) Do you have any suggestions as to how to help with a post hysterectomy uterine prolapse? Sadly I thought my prolapse would be repaired with surgery, however I still have the prolapse…even a slight buldge ?

    Thank you Michelle. I have searched YT and internet and you hands down have the safest, most informative instructions. I am 47
    and just had a full hysterectomy and consider myself an “exerciser”. I am 2 weeks post op and am itching to do something bc I feel great- almost normal, but I know I need to wait. I will definitely comb all of your videos to create a starting plan. MOOOOO!!!! Lol!
    Thank you so much for all you do. ❤️

    Dear Michelle, thank you very much for your helpful video. I had my hysterectomy in March 10th 2020 and unfortunately no one recommended me to do pelvic floor exercises until about 2 weeks ago 🙁 When I got strong enough to start doing yoga (1st May) I started very gently and with light beginner postures, but I had no precautions in modifying any. Out of the postures you describe in this video I did the unmodified forward bend, and the unmodified planks (on my hands and forearms). Is it too late to start modifying the poses now? also, at some point you talk about pelvic floor problems, could you explain what problems exactly you are referring to? also, is it too late for the pelvic floor exercises you recommend in other videos? Thank you!!

    Hi Michelle, this video is super helpful. Thankyou. Can I ask, about child’s pose and prolapse? Is Child’s pose a safe pose for people with PF problems and prolapse?
