Successful single-leg balance can be defined as your ability to maintain upright body posture without having to step down or grab onto something. In more scientific terms, it refers to the ability of your central nervous system to keep the body’s center of mass within safe boundaries above the base of support (your foot) during or after perturbation.  Perturbation is commonly defined as a disturbance of motion, course, arrangement, or state of equilibrium.

It’s more than a chore, it’s your life.   It sounds super dramatic but movement and overall health are intertwined. Whether any of us like it or not, if we want to have a long and enjoyable life, we have to move.  We all spend enough time in static seated positions like at our desks during work, behind the wheel while driving, or even on our couches watching Netflix.
