Splits (Hanumanasana in Sanskrit) deeply stretches the thighs and hip flexors and can improve awareness of alignment. It is therefore important to have adequately warmed up before attempting this posture to avoid groin or hamstring injury.
This modified version of Splits that incorporate blocks is great to help transition into full Splits as the blocks can be lowered over time and help prevent too much pressure moving into the groin area.
