Friday Bits: Yoga Poses for Tight Hips and Hamstrings

My boot camp class on Wednesday was ROUGH. My workout started with lunges around a full-length pool while holding a 35-pound kettlebell (why did I choose that weight??) and 50 squat lifts with the kettlebell. The rest of the workout was a blur. I remember my legs and arms feeling like jelly throughout the class, but that’s about it. Needless to say, my hips and hamstrings were incredibly sore the next day!

To give my body some TLC that it desperately needs, I decided to look up yoga poses that target the hips and hamstrings. If any of you are also looking for ideas for some juicy hip openers and hamstring stretches, try some of these yoga sequences:

Happy Stretching!
