Sucirandhrasana serves to Increase external range of motion of the femur in hip socket and lengthens hip flexors. This practice also has a philosophical theme -- e.g., attention to our desire (icha shakti), knowledge of ourselves (jnana shakti), and the actions that we perform as we become more attuned to our desires and knowledge of ourselves and our dharma (kriya shakti). You'll be working with several other poses such as parsvakonasana, utkatasana, and lunges to prepare you for different versions of sucirandhrasana.
