This posture comes up a lot in a variety of types of posture, from meditative to strength based. It is a key element in many asana practices but people often underestimate or forget how difficult this posture is to begin with.
The key here is making sure it is NOT hurting your knees. This isn’t a muscular stretch feeling and it will get worse if you keep pushing it not better.
If your new to this posture, start with lots of hip openers and dynamic movement to stretch and warm up the body before hand.
