Hips still open after many months off - more mental than physical?

    With my previously adopted body mechanics I was always kicking with hips closed regardless of whether I was active or not. Then I switched to open hips, but I thought for sure the default closed hips would creep back after inactivity. Well they don't!

    Open hips stay with me now regardless of whether I stope stretching or not. Is this what you call muscle memory?

    Here's an example after many months not doing anything.
