I have no idea what its called, but i just did this stretch where you lay on the floor with your legs straight up and against the wall. all you do is lay there, read a book, take a nap, whatever you feel like doing, while you let gravity pull your legs down on either side of you. just spent 10 minutes like that and i must say i am very impressed. such a good stretch off of that.

What did it stretch? Were your legs together or apart? Straight up or at angles?

I have done the same thing. My Sensei told me to try it one day and it does help.

Below is a link to some info about it.

They call it the lying wall groin stretch.

That's a great passive static stretch for the adductors.

Just save that type of stretching for after class
