Figure 2: The gluteus minimus stabilizing the head of the femur in the acetabulum and the tensor fascia lata (and gluteus medius) stabilizing the pelvis.
Another muscle that is active during the mid-stance phase of gait is the rectus abdominis, which runs from the pubis to the front of the ribcage and xiphoid process of the sternum. Begin by working with a support, such as a chair or the wall so that you can focus on integrating the muscular engagement without having to also focus on balancing (figure 4). Cues for stabilizing the core are best worked with over a period of several practice sessions (using a support for balance).
Other poses that improve core strength, especially that of the abdominal muscles, include Navasana (figure 5) and Chaturanga dandasana (figure 6). Maggie Giuffrida is a graduate of The University of Arizona where she earned a degree in journalism. Don’t get me wrong, I would never condone practicing yoga strictly for superficial purposes, but I would encourage using it to strengthen your partnership.
Practicing yoga with your partner allows you to set aside your differences in order to work together toward a common goal, while improving your communication with one another, since you have to be attentive to each other's bodies.
Even if you don't have a man, you can still use the power of partner yoga to strengthen other relationships in your life, such as family bonds and friendships. Kasperzak, a wife and mother of two small children, says that she and her husband of nearly 10 years try to practice yoga together at least once a week, and doing so has improved their partnership.

Researchers have used surface EMG’s to detect which muscles are most active during each of the various phases of walking. This muscle aids to stabilize the lumbar spine and pelvis during this part of the walk cycle (figure 3).
Take Tree pose (Vrksasana) and, on your exhalation, gradually tense the abdomen; a visual cue is to draw the navel inward.
The targeted muscular engagement becomes increasingly refined and efficient with each successive session and is easier to use with the final pose. I will be teaching state of the art techniques on these subjects, including much new material relating to therapeutic applications of yoga--all with great 3-D illustrations, excellent food, beautiful facilities and expertly taught daily Hatha yoga classes. Stay tuned for our next post when I'll present another subject on combining science and yoga. Not only does partner yoga make you feel better and more confident in yourself, but it also makes you feel stronger and more connected as a couple, deepening your relationship. They can also be used as spinal isolation exercises for those who do practice yoga. Because you'll be working on feeling your body and controlling it you'll be able to feel the position where you use the least effort, where bones are stacked and aligned with gravity and with each other, so that you require less muscular effort to keep them in place.
For example, during the mid-stance phase, the hip muscles that show a higher level of contraction include the gluteus minimus and tensor fascia lata (figure 2).
