Strengthening and moving your outer hips while lengthening your inner thighs gives access to deeper openings so that your hips, rather than your knees get involved in more advanced bent knee seated poses. Begin with variations of supta padangusthasana and standing poses to awaken your outer hips and stretch your groins. Use the same actions in inversions, supine and seated poses. Repeat the final pose and take savasana on your own. Props Needed: A strap and three blankets.
