Move your Ankles for Better Balance

Uncategorized Sep 04, 2020
 
Ankles are made to MOVE.
 
Maintaining balance in standing and walking are hard to do... when your ankles don’t move!
 
You can explore the movements of the ankle with more FREEDOM when you lie down, or sit on the FLOOR.
 
When gravity is taken out of the equation, the brain can stop being busy organizing muscles to keep you upright. Which for some us (and our kids), can be a lot of effort for our brains. 
 
When you lie down, the nervous system has a chance to let go and concentrate on learning new things…. Like how your ankles can move!
 
Get down on the floor today and explore how your ankles can move!
 
Pro Tips:
  • Go SLOW!
  • Get CURIOUS!

Keep moving!
