We do that sometimes though I won't do it anymore as I've been hurt that way twice, instead of that we can lay over our partner who is crouched on the floor on their hands and knees. I prefer this way,even without the pain factor I never enjoyed the other stretch.
From what I have heard alot of people are injured doing this stretch because they do it improperly. The proper way for this to be done is for the person who is bending over to get below the others butt, the butt should be in the small of your back. From there you should lean forward and find center, then stand up, squat, stand up, squat etc however many times dictated. It is important to keep your arms extended above your head and not out to the sides.. From there let the person back down and you then reverse and it's your turn.

That's the way it was explained to me and that is the way we perform it.

Cheers,

Eric
