Static Balance

Balance is an essential prerequisite of almost all movement skills.

A static balance is defined as being able to maintain a stationary position throughout the movement.

  • Stand still with your foot flat on the ground.
  • Hold your bent let (at 90°) away from your other leg.
  • Look straight ahead in front of you.
  • Stand up tall when you balance.
  • Keep arms stretched but drop/relax shoulders.
