Balance and Stretch with Katerina Wen

Bal­ance is impor­tant for peo­ple of all ages. It tones the legs and strength­ens your feet, ankle and knees. It is also one of the nat­ur­al ways to firm up the core and your glu­teus muscles.

Bal­ance is known as the best prac­tice for fall pre­ven­tion, but it is also a won­der­ful prac­tice for your brain health. Stretch­ing keeps your body healthy, increas­es the blood flow of your mus­cles. It is a great stress relief and can calm your mind.
