How do you restore your ability to do Yoga after an injury?

Loving the feeling of the complete Sun Salutation but after last July and surgery on my left wrist because of injury while doing yoga has left me very apprehensive. I am in my late 50's and love my body and want to honor it.

Strengthening your forearms that extends your wrist is a necessity, so that you arms can support your total body in a plank which is part of Sun Salutation. You can do this by holding a light dumbbell and flex the wrist up and down. Try 10-15 reps three times. The most important rule is to listen to your body and if it feels wrong then don’t do it; I agree that you do need to honor your body!
