Excellent pose to strengthen and open the hips and groin?

Come into a seated position on the floor.
Bend the knees and bring the soles of the feet together, keeping the heels as close to the body as possible.
Fully relax the inner thigh muscles and clasp the feet with both hands.
Gently bounce the knees up and down, using the elbows as levers to press the legs down.
Try to touch the knees to the ground on the downward stroke. Do not use any force.
Practice 30 to 50 up and down movements.
Breathe normally.

Benefits:

Stretches inner thighs, groins and knees
Releases the tension from the inner thighs
Helps remove tiredness from long hours of standing and walking
Offers relief from menstrual discomfort
