I am doing Yoga also in class since over a year from time to time and since 3 month additionally 3-5 times a week on my own at home with YBC. At the beginning I noticed problems with my hips when doing standing splits or half moon pose. I paid a lot of attention to hip flexibility excersises and in general I am not bad at all when it comes to flexibility (do not need a Yoga blog or so). However when I am supposed to do these one legged standing position I always have hip pain/cramp on the side of the standing leg.
I now wonder if it is due to unopen hips or if something else is wrong. Are their any poses to train/flex this area so I won’t feel that pain while doing one stand poses?
Thanks for your help ?
