Better balance can not only help strengthen your core and prevent injury, it can also improve your posture from the foot up. When you are balancing on one foot [bare foot or in your dr. Liza shoes] you’re actually strengthening the muscles in your foot. This will lift you up and make you stand up taller. It will also mean less foot, knee, hip and back pain and better posture. Strengthening your core with these balancing poses can also help correct the dreaded hunched forward posture that can be caused by too much sitting.
