The present study endeavours to explore the significant role pelvic stability contributes to maintaining the desired alignment in yoga asanas. The faulty postures due to sedentary lifestyles cause weakening of the muscles. This paper explains how Hip Musculature essentially The Gluteus Maximus and Gluteus Medius play an essential role in pelvic stability in many yoga asanas as well as a vital role in the health of our lumbar spine, sacrum, hip joints, and knees. Further, given the recent global interest in yoga asanas, it is critical to identify particular risk factors and injury processes to decrease the frequency with which these injuries occur. Also, this narrative review of the literature on hip musculature and its correlation with yoga asanas focuses on the factors leading to injuries, thereby helping to determine which asanas represent the greatest risk of injury and propose injury-prevention techniques.
