Improving Your Sense of Balance

As we age, we gradually lose our sense of balance. To reverse this, challenge yourself with stability exercises for a complete workout routine. Here is a typical yoga pose that will help you stand tall and improve your sense of balance.


STEP-1.Stand upright on a level surface with both feet flat on the floor. Shift your weight toward your right foot. Slowly bend your left knee and place your left foot against the inside of your right calf. Bring both hands in front of your chest with palms pressed together. Focus your eyes on one spot to help you feel steady.


STEP-2. 2As your balance improves, slide your left foot up higher until it is above your right knee. Press your foot and inner thigh against each other for more stability. Slowly stretch your arms overhead with your hands shoulder width apart, palms turned in. Focus on extending the sides of your torso as you balance, and breathe evenly for 10 to 20 seconds. Bring your arms and legs down and repeat on the other side.
