After suffering a shin splint, and two hamstring injuries years ago, it has affected my both my flexibility and practice a lot. I know I cannot overstretch and I have to be extremely careful in my practice. Splits are not my best because of that.
Split |Hanumasana A beautiful hip opener! Warm up your hamstrings and hips with some lunges, pigeon pose, runner pose (half split). DOS: * Keep hips and shoulders square towards the front of the mat * Press your inner thights towards each other * straighten your spine * Place a block under your front tight if your hamstrings are tight DON'TS * don't turn your hip and knee out to side * Don't push yourself too fast and too soon in the pose, if you're not ready
