These Really Easy Hip Stretches Will Relieve The Tension Of A Stressful Day

We hold a lot of stress and tension in our hips, an area of the body that is often ignored during a workout warm-up or a stretching session.

Runners, desk-sitters and long-commuters all typically have tight hips. To remedy, follow along with LA-based yoga instructor Vytas Baskauskas, who demonstrates some really simple hip stretches in the video above.

If this is your first time working this area, know that things might feel a little -- or a lot -- tight. Don't let this discourage you; the more you practice, the more flexibility you'll gain. As Baskaukas notes, both newbies and yogis can work these poses. Watch the video and give the moves a try -- your body deserves it.
