Sitting on the floor, keep one leg in front of you, bent inward. It’s best if you can keep it parallel to you instead of folding it in too much but it might take some practice. The other leg is bent in a similar way but behind you. If you have trouble feeling this stretch you need to ensure that your butt is firmly placed on the floor, that is you’re not leaning on one side of your butt cheek. Second you can try turning your torso towards your front knee, even leaning a little against it.

Don’t make the mistake of trying to compete for laying your belly flat on your front knee. Unless you’re very flexible you’ll inadvertently bend your back and not do much for the stretch.
