Though it might not cross your mind,
you need good balance to do just about everything, including walking, getting out of a chair, and leaning over to tie your shoes.
Strong muscles and being able to keep yourself steady make all the difference in those and many other things you do every day.
Balance training involves doing exercises that strengthen the muscles that help keep you upright, including your legs and core.
These kinds of exercises can improve stability and help prevent falls.
Doing balance exercises can be intense, like some very challenging Yoga, Pilates and Yamuna (body Rolling).
Others are as simple as standing on one leg for a few seconds.
Or you can use equipment that forces your body to stabilize itself, like a Bosu half-circle stability ball or a balance board you use along with a vide.
