I agree with Dave DeCoursey. In my yoga class, and I only do one a week where we do a combination of yin and hatha yoga, our yogini seems to intuitively know when we need hip work. Boy does she work us. Our hips are an important element in our overall health, and the flexors (by the way, the most difficult to exercise correctly) are impacted by our daily routines. If you sit a majority of the day, as I do, it is important to stretch those flexors so they do not stay contracted. I myself have scoliosis, was born with it, but growing up, my sister and I were both very active. Swimming, court sports, softball, all these things kept us very limber, for me even into my 30's, then I started to slow down and didn't do as much to exercise my whole body, and my hips and my back were where it was felt. So, walk, do some yoga, you might even want to consider a chiropractor. I see one every couple of weeks, and it makes a difference in how my back, neck, and sciatica feel and operate. Yoga has been a wonderful addition to get me moving more frequently. I do try to do some at home, but that's more difficult. Good luck.
