Explore the keys to balance and improving balance in this anything-but-boring discussion. Learn the differences between gross control and segmental control, as well as how to progressively and appropriately influence each for individual clients.

Physically experience a variety of balance training challenges, including strategic progressions and cuing (as space permits).
