The Gluteus Medius
Warrior 2 Alignment
You'll see that it is higher than the front/left hip. If you take a look at the close up, you'll see that her right hip is not abducted much at all. It is almost in a straight line from her torso to her right thigh. That means her thigh hasn't move out from the midline of her body much, so not much abduction has occurred. It also means that the gluteus medius is not doing its job. When spotting this in other yoginis and yogis, it'll look like they are leaning toward the front leg instead of keeping the torso vertical and moving the back thigh out (hip abduction).
