Hip Openers

I sometimes get sore hips and have found a number of Yoga stretches that have helped me including the Scorpion and the Pigeon. What do you do?

The frog sit (soles of the feet together, knees flat on the floor pointing opposite directions.)

With the caveat I have more trouble turning my toes IN than OUT and have very open hips.

Runners lunge and variants

Crescent moon (runners lunge with upper body upright and arms up over head

Triangle pose

Extended side angle with elbow on knee

Body weight squats with legs wider than shoulder width, feet slightly turned out. My trainer has me tilt my pelvis back before beginning the squat

Also if you google yoga psoas, a lot of those poses seem to help the hips as well
