"Starting on hands and knees with your feet near a wall, put your right shin straight up the wall and bring your left foot forward so it's under the left knee. Place your hands on your knee and lift your spine straight up while taking your tailbone down. You should feel a strong stretch on the front part of your thigh."
I don't understand how to do this stretch.
Thank you for the extensive detail, and modifications. My "Gentle Yoga" clients are often flummoxed by the growing tightness in their hips - these directions make opening them more accessible.
