I am confused if someone has had abdominal surgery in the past like a tummy tuck a long time ago they can not perform this asana?
from my limited knowledge. the rational would be because you had the surgery and your stomach was “injured in your case from the cosmetic surgery. that scarring would create a weak point in your abdominal thus doing this would cause undue stress and possibly injury to your abdominal. again this is from my limited and 1st hand experience
