I have been practicing yoga for 9 months now, 5 of which have been private lessons. I started yoga for the physical aspects of it to mellow out my fibromyaga. There is also the spiritual aspect of it that is good but I had that journey years ago and have been at peace with the world for some time. My teacher has done wonders for me and I practice daily.

 I have an issue that limits my practice. I don't hinge! can't sit 90 degrees on the floor with my legs straight. As a young adult I could so I should be able to get back there to some extent. I searching for the right combination to loosen the hamstrings (or what ever is holding me back). This affects what I can do in my practice  and I often approach injury as my back over compensates.

That is what brought me here. Maybe someone could help.
