This movement class is a quickie and based around yoga block balance exercises. These exercises are great for knee tracking, strength and stability for muscles around the knee. Grab a yoga block and join me!

Yoga block balance exercises
When looking at leg strength and stability we often think of big movements like squats and lunges. But, that doesn’t have to be the case, small can be strong too! And even, dare I say, a little more functional. For this yoga block balance exercises class we begin with a standing single-leg mini chair.
I call it a mini chair because it’s literally the first few inches of chair pose, but balancing on a block. Keeping the hips stable. For the next exercise, balance on the block and lift the opposite knee then lower down.
These yoga block balance exercises work the standing leg. Perform 10-12 reps, then switch. Rest between sets, taking a walk around before doing another set or two.
