Simple Balance Exercises For Sitting

      The most important factor to consider with practicing balance exercises in a seated position is postural alignment.  During both standing and sitting balance routines, it is essential for the individual to adopt an upright posture and maintain that center of body alignment throughout the exercise session.  One of the main stability exercises to consider is controlling weight shifting of that postural alignment from side to side and front to back.  As the individual controls their weight shifting, they will automatically work on improving balance.  An additional benefit of practicing stability exercises with a good posture is the resultant improvement in core strength and stabilization.
