Upright Balance

  • Raise the leg backwards passing through a toe point
  • Ensure the raised leg is straight
  • Keep both legs turned out
  • Hips need to be kept level and not rotated to assist the lifting of the leg
  • Body must remain upright (keep your head over your supporting foot)
  • Ensure the lifting and lowering of the leg is completed with control
  • It is important that the body does not move forward to allow extra height with the leg. The upper body must stay completely upright.
