Yoga Balance Basics Plus Balance Videos: Standing Balance Exercises

About the Bundle

One of the most problems with just reading about balance is that it is difficult to show what slow and smooth movement looks like. Moving slowly and smoothly makes it easier to both feel your body and control it. It also makes it easier to stay balanced.

The included videos use standing exercises only but the basics of balance (learning to use your foundation to feel and control your center) apply to almost any balance pose. These are the exercises that I use at the beginning of my yoga classes to get my students into feeling their body.

About the Books

Yoga Balance Basics

Yoga Basics with a Focus on Feeling your Center of Gravity and Controlling It
  • 125


  • PDF

  • EPUB

  • WEB

Balance Basics sprang from a desire to teach people how to better feel their body and control it.

Sensitivity and responsiveness is something that can be learned and improved upon  and Balance Basics is one of the easiest ways to begin to learn.

Learning to balance is actually about learning to feel and control our relationship with the Earth. The better we can sense this relationship and the better we are at responding, the easier it is to stay balanced.

Balance Basics shows you how to direct your senses so that you can actually feel our relationship with the earth, in particular the relationship where our center of gravity, our foundation and the earth's center are all in one line.

It also shows you how to respond so that if you feel this relationship going out of alignment, you can respond to bring it back into alignment.

There's nothing mystical about it. It's as easy as learning to drive a car, or even a motorbike. The key is breaking it down into easy to understand and easy to assimilate steps with clear instructions on what you are trying to do.

With Balance Basics you don't have to think so much about what you are trying to do, you can get on with doing it.

The actual theory behind Balance Basics is grade 12 physics and dynamics and is very similiar to the idea behind the technology used to weighing trucks.

Instead of the scales being outside of our body, they are actually built in. We just have to learn how to use them.

And the same basic ideas apply in most balance poses. To illustrated this, Balance Basics includes exercises for balancing on the fronts of the feet, balancing on one foot, balancing on the hands in arm balances like crow pose, balancing on the hands in handstand and balancing in headstand.

While the postures range from easy to intermediate, the understanding that balance basics contains is applicable to most balancing poses, even the ones not contained in this book.

Yoga Balance Videos

Standing Balance Exercises for Better Body Awareness and Control
    • PDF

    • EPUB

    • WEB

    This set of videos is designed as a compliment to the Yoga Balance Basics ebook. It focuses on "weight shifting" exercises while standing so that you can learn both how to activate your feet and ankles for greater stability and how to use your feet to "sense" where you center of gravity is. The videos follow a gradual progression to increase awareness and understanding so that by the end of the series you also know how to use your feet to remain balanced. This means using your feet to lever your center to where you want it to be.

    The later videos in this set also include breathing exercises so that you can synchronize weight shifting with inhales and exhales.

    This set of videos is suitable for anyone who wants to gain a better understanding and experience of balance. Because all of the exercises involve slow and gradual weight shifting, most of the exercises are suitable for Seniors and others with poor balance awareness. 

    These exercises are also suitable for anyone who practices Tai Ji since the exercises themselves where inspired by my own practice of tai ji and learning to feel the difference between "Full" and "Empty" or "Strong" and "Relaxed."

    Exercises are short and easy to understand so that you can get on with doing them. Also, the exercises can feel very soothing, like rhythmic meditations.
