Are we required to bow during the 'Aleinu prayer when reciting the line starting with ״ואנחנו כורעים״?

If there are differing halakhic rulings or customs, which I assume there are, their sources would be much appreciated!

the nosa7 of rambam doesnt have coree3m. wa'ana7nu meeshta7aweem. just throwing that out there. also rambam only has it for rosh hashono not every day like modern day practices,and no one in the minyan bows here as stated by Mori Gafi7 that we only bow where 7azal told us to bow during the 3amidho. –  MoriDoweedhYaa3gob Sep 23 '13 at 21:18
