Yoga Video: Stretch Those Hips and Hamstrings

Need to open up and stretch those tight hips and hamstrings? Not only is this a wonderful sequence to start out with before moving onto deeper poses like backbends, but it's also a great way to warm up before or after a run, hike, or bike ride.

By the way, I'm wearing the Simplicity Pants made by be present. I love the way they feel when I practice. They allow me to move freely and they wick moisture from my skin so I stay dry.

OK, that was embarassing, I appear to be carved from wood, there is no bendiness in my joints, I need to go buy hinges today.

You so look so elegant and make it look effortless. Ok I'm going to change and try this now but my hamstrings are sooo tight!

My hips are so tight. I think if I could just get them to loosen, yoga would be so much easier for me. I'm just so darn impatient.
