Senior Balance Exercises With Elvis Presley

By Suzanne Stoke, Physical Therapist @ Exercise For Balance via

    Just for fun, lets practice our senior balance exercises to Elvis Presley’s tune, “Return To Sender.” Since Elvis was such a talented forerunner of combining singing and dancing, we should emulate a little of his “style” during our balance exercise program today. Elvis had a magical way of pulling off amazing dance moves and balancing acts, while singing his wonderful musical numbers. He could simultaneously swing his hips, bend his knees, pump his ankles and throw his arms– all without falling off-balance. He was the master of controlled weight shifting. Even with all his gyrations, he was able to “return to center” and not lose his balance. One of the keys to good balance is keeping one’s body weight centered in the mid-point of their feet. Please see

Senior Balance Exercises– Elvis Style

     In honor of Elvis, we can try practicing senior balance exercises to  control weight shifting during different movement activities. First, we  can start with shifting our body mass side to side and from one foot to  the other with the feet shoulder width apart in standing. Next, we can  try shifting the body weight from the toes to the heels, slowly and  with good control. This anterior to posterior weight shifting is  essential to master to keep you from falling either forwards or  backwards. In weeks and months ahead, you can progress your weight  shifting exercise to add knee bends and ankle pumps, just like Elvis–  if you can. For today, you can practice these balance techniques and  senior balance exercises developed by an experienced Physical Therapist  with the Exercise For Balance DVD. To add some fun, practice the  stability routines while humming “return to sender…”
