Ready to work on your Balance & Coordination?

If you have noticed your balance is not what it used to be, then you are in the right place! Indeed, our ability to balance changes over the years. There is a concept called proprioception that is key to achieving and maintaining good balance. That is to say, our perception or awareness of the position and movement of our body is responsible for our balance. Some call it the “sixth sense.”

The proprioceptors of our body are found primarily in our muscles, tendons, and skin. Therefore, physical movement will keep those receptors functioning well. For example, Tai Chi and Yoga are effective movement practices that help maintain and/or improve muscular strength, balance and coordination. In our Video Library, we organized targeted videos that will educate, empower and help you improve your balance. Consequently, your coordination will improve as well.

Why is Balance & Coordination so Important?

As we age, falls are one of the biggest risks to our long term health. Most of us have heard of friends or loved ones who have sustained an injury during a fall. Sometimes, these injuries take months or years to recover. Therefore, if we find ourselves tripping or losing our balance often, then it’s time to do something about it! Feeling insecure on a variety of surfaces, such as grass, hiking paths and cobblestones, is also a good reason to start working on our balance. To clarify, balance is not just learning how to stand on one leg… it is much broader than that.

Our balance improves when we practice different movements that require the coordination of multiple parts of our bodies. For instance, our feet are used to create a foundation for our balance. In addition, our arms can be used to help us balance and our joints, when aligned properly, help to keep us upright and strong. Consequently, if you’re having difficulty with your balance, YogaVista.TV is here to provide support! In other words, we have lots of creative ways for you to work on and improve your balance. We are here to guide and assist you with our structured Essential Programs.
