Try this.....



Side Crow(?) Then perhaps see if you can extend one or both legs out. Here's some other variations you could try:


Utthita Hasta Padangushtasana

So disgusted with myself!  Went to a BBQ today and ate like a full grown man.  I did an hour of cardio this morning with abs and Pilates but I'm positive I ate back all the calories and then some.  I'ma call it a cheat day and KIM.

Good luck Femme

Femme do you do yoga at home? that is a feat! I could never do that without an instructor.

I have had a tight hamstring for like 2 months, it finally went away yesterday thank goodness.

there's also a lot of free yoga online, myfreeyoga, but my go to is p90x yoga dvd

day 1 of insanity...not trying to lose weight so im really going to have to eat a lot to keep weight on

let's see if i can stick with it, fit test wasn't bad, but i get bored easily

^oh so you use a dvd. ok that makes sense. hmm I am interested in the p90x yoga.  I'd love to stream it on my tv.  I don't own a DVD player.  We stream everything. How do you use it?

eta: my goal is to actually lose 10 pounds this month. I haven't been able to do that throughout this entire process bc I like to eat. My LS's wedding is at the end of the month and it'll be like a mini college reunion. I did fit into a size 6 dress yesterday. woot woot. Single numbers!!!ClapStar

i dont own a dvd player...i stream videos i find online or play dvds on my laptop  and hook it up to my tv with an hdmi cord

i dont always use videos, i've kind of learned from the videos and developed my own sequences...trying to incorporate harder positions now

and congrats!!
