Cross legged sitting in the chair

Has anyone tried sitting cross-legged in the Gokhale chair or know if Esther recommends it? Sitting with my legs together all day makes my groin muscles very tight. I'm looking for a chair that would allow me to sit cross-legged at my desk at work and stretch those inner groin muscles out. Thanks!

I made the seatpan extra wide expressly to allow for comfortable cross legged sitting! I'm so thrilled that someone out there appreciates this like I do! 

Note that unsupported cross legged sitting doesn't work for modern hip joints - it takes either a Stretchsit element or a wedge to have healthy alignment in the spine. The Gokhale Pain Free chair makes it easy to stretchsit while sitting cross legged, thus avoiding the swaying or rounding that would otherwise very likely happen.
