The Rhomboids Major and Minor Muscles.

The rhomboids run from the spinous processes of the vertebral bodies and the supraspinous ligaments to insert onto the medial (inner) border of the scapula. The rhomboid minor originates at the level of C7 and T1; the major originates from T2 to T5. These muscles retract (adduct) and stabilize the scapula. In Garudasana, we protract (abduct) the shoulder blades, thereby stretching the rhomboids.
