Tight left adductor / hip flexors from Stretchsitting

Hello,

One small issue I experience with stretchsitting is that
I'm resting on my left side too much, which shortens my adductors/hip flexors on my
left side; I now can't lift my knee up when standing for more than 30 degrees. I tried
stretching these muscle groups, but I can't fully resolve the issue. Any tips?

Best,

Avner

I would definitely recommend going to a physician if you have these kinds of symptoms. Once you understadn what is going on, I recommend working with a qualified Gokhale Method teacher. Clearly you don't have a lot of leeway to play with so if you do any of our techniques, they need to be done right. Your teacher may guide you in stretchsitting slightly asymetrically - pushing down a little more on your left arm to get your alignment to be more symmetric. Good luck!
