Some people perform a version of this stretch in which they pull on their leg to stretch their opposite hip. We suggest that you learn how to relax first before attempting to use force to encourage any muscle to relax. By using the wall as a support in this stretch and "blocking" the ankle across your knee it is possible to concentrate on melting into the floor with your lower back, completely relaxing your hip and thigh muscles, and getting much deeper stretch in your Piriformis and other lateral rotators.
