Every woman is different and when she can return to her yoga practice is based on individual factors. Before returning to any exercise or yoga practice she must first get the “ok” from her doctor or midwife.

Most healthcare practitioners will want the woman to have stopped any bleeding before returning to any yoga practice, this is typically two to three weeks. If she starts bleeding again or bleeding increases after doing any activity it usually means she did too much. Again listening to your body is pivotal in resuming yoga practice postpartum.

Women who have had cesarians should consult with their doctor and usually they will want her to wait at least 6 to 8 weeks postpartum before resuming regular yoga.
