Open/closed is referring to the angle formed at the hips by the upper leg and your torso.

Think of your thigh as the cover of a book and your stomach the back of a book and the spine of the book is at the crease where your thigh intersects with your hip.

When the book is closed...the thigh touches the stomach. When the book is open...there is no bend at all at your hip and you are standing fully erect.
