Anyone who has ever been faced with recovering from surgery can vouch for just how difficult and painful it can be. Following surgery your body is literally traumatized from medications, incisions, stitches, etc. Yoga is an incredibly beneficial way to assist your body in healing and regaining strength quickly and safely. Yoga utilizes slow, delicate motions as a method of lengthening, strengthening and restoring your body's sense of balance and harmony.
