How Good is Your Balance?

Balancing Flow

How long can you balance on one foot? This is probably not something you practice often. When we can fit a workout into our busy lives, we often head straight for cardio or the weights. It's rare to see someone at the gym working on balance. Yet without it, we'd be in trouble! We take for granted that we can shift our weight from one foot to the other while walking or climbing stairs without realizing how large a part balance plays in most of our daily activities.

This standing stretch flow is challenging not only because it asks us to balance for a while, but because it's also an intense stretch for the legs. Give it a try, and be patient with yourself as you improve your ability to focus and balance.
