Single Leg Forefoot Balance

We often take for granted our body’s ability to remain upright and balanced. In fact, achieving and maintaining equilibrium is a complicated beast. Balance is the ability to maintain the body’s center of mass over its base of support. Balance is achieved when sight, touch, motion and spacial orientation are synched. When it’s working properly we see clearly, orient to our surroundings, determine movement, make adjustments and maintain stability in varying conditions. When it’s not- we fall over. Practice balance with this simple exercise a little bit each day.
