It’s no secret that balance and flexibility can help support you in a variety of different areas throughout your day, from picking something up off the floor, to making sure you don’t fall while going for a run. And while this comes naturally to many people, formatting your workout routine to enhance these skills can make a world of difference in your other forms of exercises. Yoga is one of the best ways to get started on your journey to better balance, and one of our favorite ways to practice flexibility is with the dancer pose.
