I probably need these. I am too "stiff" to sit cross-legged and have been unable to sit on my heels for years now. (Might be too late?) I can't use age as an excuse because many ladies much older than me (I'm almost 60) are able to assume these positions. "Use it or LOSE it!", I guess... :) Report
I truly surprised myself by being able to get into a couple of these positions.
I hope I can do them all one day. Report
These exercises really did open up my hips and give me a greater range of motion Report
Agree with CHRISHARP and DOLPHIN225. PLEASE, SparrkPeople, can't you offer a selection of videos for typical Sparkers who are twice this woman's size and a tenth as flexible??? Are you listening, Coach Nicole? Report
CHRISHARP
not flexible enough to do these. I'll stay with the strength training stretches. I do have a lot of hip pain. I am doing a lot of leg raises which help. Good luck to all who can do this video. Report
These are for people who are more flexible than I am. I have knee problems that I would be afraid of making worse. Report

I'll try to do some of them! I don't sit at a desk any more. I'm retired. But I did when I worked. I've had 2 knee replacements, and I can't put any pressure on my knees. Have a

I don't sit at a desk all day, but I have very tight hips (think it's genetic as my aunt and grandma have both had hip replacements, and my mom has hip/knee problems) so I try and stretch them out, but I couldn't do a lot of these poses. I think maybe my belly is in the way for a few, and the others are almost painful. My hip actually made a popping noise when I tried to do the lizard pose :( Report
Unable to view the video :-( Report
Really great. At my age, I am beginning to feel some hip pain, but I find stretching really does help. Report

I will try some of these stretches. I sit at a desk all day and try to move about as much as possible. Report

Excellent! Definitely including these stretches. I didn't realize just how tight my hips actually are. Thanks! Report
Will definitely add some of these if not all to my stretch after my weekly runs. Report
