Balance Finger

Posted by terrepruitt on December 22, 2009

.

This is the a picture of the Balance Finger from the Nia 52 Moves

The Middle Finger is pointing down.  In Nia this hand/finger position is general used in combination with your arms straight out and one foot in the air.  As you balance on one foot use your balance finger in space for support.

This exercise assist in integrating the two halves of the body, the upper half and the lower half.  Anytime you stand or lean on one leg you workout the balance/stabilizing muscles.  I think when your stabilizing muscles are used to working out they will be there when you need them and help keep you from falling.

Let me hear it. What have you got to say about this post?
