I'm Tanya Eberhardt, and this is yoga poses for balance. Yoga poses for balance will help you improve your proprioception and overall body awareness. As we get older, it appears that our activity level decreases which means we spend less and less time practicing balancing poses which are extremely important. However, the following yoga poses will help you keep your proprioception to par and improve your balance. Start at the back of your mat, step forward with the right foot and left the left leg up. Reach the arms forward, bring the arms in line with your ears, clasp your finger and release your index cross your thumbs. Lift the left leg and lower the torso so that the leg and the torso are in one line parallel to the floor and hold this pose for six long and deep breaths. Inhale to come up as you draw the left knee into your chest. Release the clasp of the fingers and grab your hands underneath the hamstrings, extend the left leg out. Slowly peel the hands off the hamstrings and bring your hands to your hips. Lower the leg to the floor and step back at the edge of your mat. Step the left foot forward, lift the right leg up. Reach the arms in line with your ears, clasp the fingers and release the index. Lower the torso and lift the leg so that the leg and the torso are parallel to the floor. Hold the pose for six breaths, inhale to come up as you lift the right leg, hands underneath the hamstring, straighten the right leg out, peel the hands away, hands on your hips and slowly lower the leg. Hold Vera III which is where your leg and torso are parallel to the floor for six breaths and then extend the leg out for three breaths.
