    Question Already missing my Yoga

    I'm having surgery in the morning to relieve my claw toe and some type of fusion done on two other toes. I know I will have to wait for a few months to heal a bit but how long will it take to safely perform a Downward Dog?

    With a fused toe, you most likely won't be able to properly do one. My right big toe is fused. I cannot do downward dog, lunges, calf raises, etc. as designed. Modifications can be done but one has to make sure to maintain balance and not over rotate the foot or else you can risk stress fractures. Ask your ortho to send you to PT so you can better learn how to compensate for the loss of function.
