Hip Abductors and Adductors

Hip Abductors and Adductors

The main job of your hip adductors is to move the leg in toward the midline, and hip abductors to move the leg out. But another important role of those muscles is to stabilize your pelvis. Do not ignore your adductors/abductors! In your yoga practice make sure to include the movements that contract and stretch your inner thighs, as well as movements that make your hip abductors both stabilize the pelvis and move the leg out to the side. Be careful to look  for compensation patterns from other muscles!
