When it comes to my yoga practice, one of my favorite areas to stretch out are my HIPS. Before starting yoga, I never realized how much stress and tension can build up in your hip area. I love to do a good 20-30 minute workout then also specifically focus on stretching out the hip and hamstring areas. It’s like a breath of fresh air and a much needed release from the stress of the day. Here are 7 of my favorite hip opening yoga poses!
