What are your best techniques for improving flexibility? In particular I'm looking to work on straddle and square splits, but even general flexibility improvement would be good.

Borrowing from yoga poses would probably be good. I'm not a yoga expert, but pigeon pose, bound angle, and runner's lunge would be good to improve hip flexibility. Check out yogajournal.com. They have a section under Poses that allows you to build your own sequence and see various poses by body part.

Stretching! I'm very flexible and the reason is because I stretch a lot. Obviously don't overdue it but I'd say it's the number one thing to help with flexibility.

Yin yoga is amazing! It is really gentle and has been incredibly effective for me. This is a great DVD but also many yoga studios offer yin. http://www.amazon.com/dp/B000B5871I

Oh, yay, great timing! I was just trying to remember if it was you who had mentioned a yin yoga DVD elsewhere on the forum. I've been wanting to pick one up and get back to it!
