This exercise is great for improving balance. It works your core, legs and arms. Begin by standing with feet parallel and hip width apart. Make sure to stand tall. Stare at something in front of you to help you stay focused. Keep your core muscles tucked in as you begin to shift your weight onto your right foot and raise your left foot positioning the sole of your left foot either on your ankle, calf or mid thigh, whichever position is comfortable for you. Bring your hand first in a prayer position then slowly raise your arms over your head, look up and hold this position for as 30-60 seconds or as long as you can. Repeat 4 times on each leg.
