George Purvis: Yogi with Anterior THR
 
George Purvis is a senior Iyengar yoga teacher with more than 30 years of teaching experience. I recently contacted him about his expereince with THR and got this terse, but helpful response. I look forward to hearing more from him. -NR
 
George Purvis
 
"I had the anterior approach, which I highly recommend over the others, but of course everyone and every case is different. My primary limitations are extension w/external rotation. Poses not recommended would be Vira 1, the standing pavrttas, hanumanasana, to name a few ... but I do them all anyway with no sense of instability, just stiffness ... and they are pretty ugly!
I just had my left hip done."
 
Here is a recent picture of George (circa early 2014).
He writes:

 
george "My surgeon doesn't approve of this , but I truly felt no limitation in my left groin when this photo was taken. Surgeons!"
