Yoga Poses for Balance, Stability and Responsiveness
One way to stay balanced is to create stability, particularly between your point of contact with the earth and your center of gravity. The more stable you are, the less you move, and so the easier it is to keep your center of gravity over your foundation.
Another way to stay balanced is to be responsive. Focus on feeling how your center relates to your foundation. The sooner you feel this relationship changing the sooner you can respond by making adjustments to counter that change.
