Many yoga poses commonly done in a regular class involve balance: tree pose, balancing half moon, hand to foot, dancer, and more.
Our sense of balance is much like a muscle - use it or lose it. As we age, balance doesn't have to become a victim. Simply practicing balance poses will allow you to retain or regain a strong sense of balance.
Here's a simple exercise to try in the comfort and privacy of your home. Stand on one leg and move the other, bent at the knee. Do this several times a day and several times a week. Once your balance is better, then do the same practice but with your eyes closed.
