Bhadrasana - Yoga Asana for Hip flexibility: Sit on the floor. Put the soles of your feet together, your knees apart. Put your hands around the feet. Let the knees go up and down a few times for warming up. Afterwards imagine that your knees go down towards the floor. This opens up the hip joints and helps the crossleg...ged positions like Padmasana, Siddhasana etc. More to follow...

Making progress in Bhadrasana, butterfly: Once you are in the posture, push gently with your hands onto your knees. Relax the inside of your legs. Don't go up and do, but use a continous gentle push. Many photographs of butterfly on http://www.yoga-vidya.de/Asana_Uebungsplaene/Bhadrasana.html
