Hi Jules, Does the shin bone have to be parallel as I have very little outward hip rotation? How can this be modified to take into account my restrictions? Thanks for all the great videos
Hi Kim,

Nope. If you're supported the knee position isn't as important as you're not loading your body weight onto the knee joint. Just do what you can and build the pose as high as you need to. If it gets silly high, then go to your back for reclining pigeon (figure 4 stretch) until you make some progress.
