Get to know your glutes

      A strong supportive bottom is key to a safe ,pain-free practice.Nowdays people are aways trying to make them looks sexy from the backside.So let me share with all of you how to get our glute muscles works nicely from yoga practice.

    First of all we need to know there is three part of glute muscles : gluteus maximus,medius and minimus along with many other smalller ,supporting muscles-act as a base of support for the pelvis and hips.The working muscles stabilize your femur in your hip socket ,rotate your femur internally and externally and draw your leg back .All of these actions also help us stand,walk and even support us when we sit.

  1.  Gluteus medius

This muscle sits partway under the gluteus maximus and connect the hip bone to the side of the upper femur.It helps you externally rotate your leg when it is extend behind you.And internally rotate your hip when your leg is flexed in front of you.Together with the gluteus minimus ,this muscle abducts the hip

     2.  Gluteus maximus

This is the biggest gluteal muscle,and it attaches to the side of the sacrum and femur .It is responsible for extending and externally rotate the hip joint.The maximus creates forward thrust as you walk ,run .

    3.  Gluteus minimus

A smaller muscle located under the gluteus medius.The minimus helps you abduct ,flex and internally rotate the hip. You will use this muscle when you make circular movements with your thigh.
