In the SP Blogilates team for the month of June, we are focusing on building strength in the legs/bum area with a 30-day challenge which I would imagine would help balance a whole lot! Report

Thank you for the caveats in the 3rd step. My proprioceptive system is thoroughly messed up, and since I live alone, I can safely work on improving my balance only when visiting my daughter. My system is so messed up, I can bump into doorways and furniture with my eyes wide open and my glasses on. I have bubble wrap on the steel leg of a chair in my bedroom -- tiny apartment, no other place for the chair, I was tired of breaking and taping my toes. There seems to be some disconnect between my body and my brain, and I have learned to adapt.

I must have unconsciously recognized the stance issue... someone once asked me why I stand with my feet planted firmly apart. I didn't have a reason except that it was how I have always stood. ::shrug:: Now I think perhaps it was a safety issue... I woudn't fall over if I stood with that wide stance.

If you have proprioception difficulties, please be careful. Report
