The Alphabet Balance and Strength Building exercise
This balancing exercise is used in many rehabilitative physical therapy routines. It will help you build balance, muscle tone and focus. We like to do this exercise once a day, preferably in the morning.
Stand erect on a non-slip flat surface, a yoga mat is good. This exercise works best in barefeet or comfortable shoes. Clasp your hands together, palms held tightly together in front of your chest and fold your fingers as if in prayer. Raise your right knee, leg bent and place your foot on the inside of your leg, either calf or ankle for balance. Extend both index fingers so they are pointing forwards, like an arrow, with your fingertips touching each other.
