Balance practice is an often overlooked aspect of a person’s session. We know it’s important but come on, do we really need to practice it?
Yes, we do.
Balance is a skill and like all skills, your balance will decline if not practiced from time to time. I cycle my skill training and in my current programming I have the Front to Back Scale as a balance skill to practice. The goal with this movement is to focus on stillness throughout whatever position I’m in when going from back to front, front to back. As I get better I’ll sophisticate the skill by taking my leg higher, extend the leg, etc. However, the goal is still the same, seeking stillness throughout my body and my mind.
