Yoga and Colostomy

I am looking for information. Any. I have recently had a colostomy. Can I do yoga? Are there particular classes? poses? clothing? Dos? Don’ts?

Thank you.

Hello there.
Thanks for reaching out. I wish I could help, but I don’t know what classes would be best after a colostomy. I’m guessing that it would be best to start with gentle classes, like our restorative classes, which you can locate under Style on our Yoga Classes page.

David,
Thank you for getting back to me.I have found some information and thought I would share it with you. This is the YouTube channel: Cori Dom Yoga and this is the playlist: Yoga with an Ostomy: Getting Started | Cori Dom Yoga

This is the link and and short write up from the page.
This video is an introduction to doing yoga with an ostomy. Learn some basic recommendations and poses that will help you to begin your yoga practice.
I’ve also posted two full class videos for ostomates:

This video is part of the final project for my 300-hour teacher training with YogaWorks. Please feel free to reach out with any questions or feedback.
