The hips open after the series of sun salutations that I recommend. The first uses down dog to child's pose to down dog. The next adds warriors 1 and 2 and side stretch after down dog. Next, we perform a salutation that includes half moon side stretches and mudra that we hold to open the hips. The next two involve the use of locust and flying bird. I find that if we perform 12 salutations in various stages that the body especially the hip area warms up.

I also recommend the new yoga series by muriel hemingway and rodney yee called yoga now. They use arm swings and jumps as warm ups. Twists are also useful as well as iyengar side stretch with legs open and enough flexion and rotation before trying to get up and down. The entire class can be performed on two feet too.

Best regards,
