My hamstring muscles are extremely stiff/tight.

I simply can't do any forward bending yoga poses.

Do you know any exercises that will loosen my hamstrings ?

You may need to consult a medical professional to see if it's something that might need cortisone or surgery for example, but what might help is trying to do a basic warm-up exercise before you do what you're trying to do, I:E 3-5 minutes of marching on the spot to warm up the hamstring muscles, or some jogging on the spot for 3-5 minutes and see if that helps.

Okay i will do what you said and by the way I was able to reach a good amount of flexibility some 10 years back by doing yoga. I kept on doing yoga but I didn't do any forward bend poses for a long long time.

I guess I will keep trying and be patient.

Taking yoga classes can help in managing this muscle tightness in your body. It is a good workout method that really helps.
