Yoga for ACL Surgery Recovery
Improve your range of motion, increase your strength, and feel more confident post-surgery with a 2 month yoga progression plan.
Recovering from ACL Surgery is a Journey - and I'm Here to Help!
Tearing your ACL can seem like the end of the world, and recovering from surgery can feel daunting and overwhelming. How can you improve your range of motion? Will your knee ever feel "normal" again?
That's where I come in.
Recovery doesn't have to be confusing, scary, or hard. When you start on the path to recover post-surgery, there are a lot of unknowns. I know, because I've been there. As an avid runner and workout fanatic, tearing my ACL & meniscus was devastating for me. The uncertainty of recovery was scary.
But it doesn't have to be for you.
By taking small steps and using yoga as a way to build confidence and strength, your recovery can and WILL be successful!

"I am 7 months ACL recon/minor meniscus tear post-op and I have been using your yoga videos since my 4th month. My surgeon kept me from PT until 6 weeks post-op, and your videos helped me catch up. Thank you so much and I really am so glad I was able to find your videos! They really have been integral to my recovery."
"Next week I’ll be 4 months post-op and I just got released from physical therapy last week. I got approved to go back to my aerial training, but it causes a lot of soreness that I like to stretch through plus my trainer also thought yoga would be a good idea in general. This is so helpful for being at home without an instructor and a plus that it is actually geared towards helping focus on those problem spots."
Frequently Asked Questions
This course was created with everyone in mind! For anyone who has never done yoga, to advanced yogi’s. The videos in the month 3 start out slow, and many modifications are provided.
You will learn new yoga postures as you progress in the course and your recovery! If the classes start to become too challenging, you can stick with the classes earlier on in the course until you feel more comfortable in the postures and movements.
By the end of the course, you will feel stronger, more flexible, and more balanced than before!
Each video is anywhere from 10-40 minutes – the average being 15-20 minutes. I recommend doing 1-2 classes a week, depending on your current physical therapy schedule.
The entire course itself is 2+ months, depending on how quickly you progress.
While I’d love to be able to guarantee progress, your progress ultimately comes down to a variety of factors: how committed you are to physical therapy, what your level of fitness was before your surgery, the type of ACL tissue replacement, your diet, lifestyle, and much more. Every person’s progress is different.
I recommend staying with the videos that you are comfortable with until they become easier, then progress to the next as you become stronger and increase your range of motion.
Please consult with your surgeon and/or physical therapist if you are experiencing any pain or plateaus.
NO. This course was created as a supplement to your recovery. I am not a medical professional, and cannot diagnose or provide any medical advice. Please consult with your surgeon and physical therapist BEFORE embarking on this course.
If you aren’t a part of the ACL club, but still have knee issues, this course is still an excellent option to strengthen all of the muscles surrounding the knees.
With that being said, please consult with your surgeon and/or physical therapist before participating in this course.
Stick with your physical therapy exercises, and start adding some additional workouts on non-PT days. If you need help deciding which exercises to do, this course includes a PDF of my ACL Guide, which includes additional exercises to do every week on non-physical therapy days.
**As always, please check with your PT & Surgeon before adding anything to your recovery regimen!
