Yoga Teacher Tips
This is one of the most effective ways to stretch the leg adductor muscles. A large percentage of the standing postures require this area to be flexible. A great improvement will be seen in many postures if this posture is practiced regularly. Make modifications for comfort and teach this posture without the backbend if they are beginners.
