Figures from the NHS show that a third of people over 60 fall over, and about half of those over 80 fall at least once a year.

‘The only way to hold on to balance and prevent falls is to practise specific balance training. Despite their physical prowess, the masters athletes were not much better at balancing than couch potatoes the same age. Balance needs to be practised’.

Really interesting article from The Times about improving your balance as you age. I incorporate balance challenges into every class for this very reason, being able to balance is vital as we age to avoid injuries and to stay supple and strong.

Incorporate regular balance challenges into your every day – stand on one leg as you brush your teeth tonight!
