Hip opening yoga poses do not have any associations with making the hips wider or thicker – as the common misconception goes. Rather, these yoga poses can always improve the flexibility of your hips, thereby freeing you from hip and back pain almost permanently. These yoga poses are in fact considered vital for people who sit hours on end due to their professional demands, so that they can avoid suffering from back pains almost on a regular basis. These yoga poses are ideal for beginners as well as their level of complexity is very low. However; you may feel slight tightness and discomfort in the first few days of practicing the exercises.
