And, here is help for chronically tight hamstrings.

1. Begin the transition to minimal footwear. As you slowly decrease the heel height you are accustomed to, be sure to do lots of calf stretching (like this, this and this) and love on your feet and ankles, too (with this, this and this).

2. Find and maintain a neutral pelvis. What is a neutral pelvis? Find it with this, this and this. Then, work on releasing the psoas muscles, which are often the underlying cause of your chronic tucking (with this and this).

What can cause one hip to be higher than another? It is most likely some hidden muscle tension. So, while you could certainly use your muscles to “force” the hips into alignment, what we really want to do is get the tense muscle causing the misalignment to let go, so that things even out.

Experiment with the following yoga breaks to release muscle tension that could contribute to a misalignment in the pelvis: calveshamstrings or psoas.

Also, when there is an imbalance between the top hips, it’s a good idea to work on the pelvic listing exercise here and here.
