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 you are new to this posture, start with lots of hip openers and dynamic movements to stretch and warm up the body beforehand. This library also consists of postures that can help you prepare for padmasana. Check the functional anatomy and alignment of padmasana to understand how to do it safely.
