This fitness how to video discusses a few standing poses that might work for tight hamstrings and hips. Ask any non-yogi office worker to sit down on the floor and cross his legs, and 9 out of 10 times, his knees will be way off the floor and his back will be hunched up like Quasimodo. If your hips are really tight, your average yoga class will only help you make small gains. In order to double or even triple your progress, keep going to class, but take ten minutes each day and practice the postures listed below. Our host demonstrates a regular side angel pose and a twisted version of side angel pose. Watch and learn.
