For most of us who sit for long hours in our modern lifestyle, hip tightness can be a major problem. This often leads lots of other problems like low back pain, knee pain, sacroiliac joint pain, hip pain and can basically affect structures above and below the hip joint.
The anterior or front hip tissues often become very tight. Very important to stretch the iliopsoas and rectus femoris muscles and anterior hip capsule/ligament to free up the hip.
This 1/2 kneeling position is a good one to stretch and open up the front of the hip.
