This balancing sequence strengthens the ankles and leg muscles, and stretches the front and back body, making it ideal for runners and athletes. Balancing is really tough - and how well you're able to balance is often a telltale sign of how much you're in the present moment. For me, if I practice balancing poses while I'm stressed out and thinking about other things I'm always super wobbly. If you're having trouble balancing, use a drishti. A drishti is a focal point in front of you where you gaze while you're in each pose. Using a drishti will help to center yourself and focus all your energy on balancing. Another tip is to check your foundation. The standing leg toes should be spread and the weight should be evenly distributed on all four corners of the foot to ensure a stable foundation. Hope you enjoy.
