Nowadays, tightness in the hips is one of the most common conditions. The main reason for that may be that we spend large parts of the day sitting in chairs, cars, or on our beds. In contrast, we spend close to no time in hip-opening positions like a deep squat. The problem is that tight hips can cause issues like lower back pain, spinal misalignments, and even injury or long-term damage.

Knee pain comes largely from tight hips.  We will spend time to externally and internally rotate the hip joints freeing up blockages there, also focus to lengthen and soften the flexors, quadriceps, hamstrings. Once you gain the required degree of freedom, you can climb the staircase light as a little bird. This is why it’s a good idea to focus on the hip area to improve your overall yoga practice.
