How did your balance assessment go?
When you are young, balance is an automatic reflex
and you can quickly recover from a trip or stand up after a fall.
However, studies show that balance naturally begins to decline after age 40 and one in three people aged 65 will suffer a fall.
Your balance is regulated by 5 Factors:
3. Muscle Mass and Strength
4. Proprioception (The ability to feel the body in space)
5. Inner Ear
Changes linked to growing older or sedentary lifestyles affect all of these areas:
1. Weaker eyesight
2. Slower reflexes
3. Weak and stiff muscles and joints
4. Poor circulation (leads to lack of physical sensation)
5. Vertigo / Dizziness (due to deposits or crystals in inner ear)
As you get older you may exercise less, gain weight, and start to feel less confident in your body and your balance.

A message from the founder, Nate Guadagni
I hope that your balance assessment went well and that you are as stable as a tree!
However, if it didn't go so well, you are not alone.
Most people over 40 struggle with their balance, and if they don't do something about it now, it doesn't tend to improve on it's own!
That's the reason why I created 3 Weeks to Better Balance - to give busy people an opportunity to improve their balance from the comfort of their own home, and on their own schedule!
I don't know about you, but I prefer not to waste my time and money on things that I won't use.
I chose Udemy as our platform to host 3 Weeks to Better Balance because it's the best you can find online.
Their platform is very easy to use, it measures your progress as you go through each video, and you can always pick up where you left off. It can be accessed easily, any where in the world, any time of the day (or night) and the video is yours forever! You can come back to this program in one year, or in ten years and continue to sharpen your balance for the rest of your life.
And for those who are tech-saavy - there are apps for both Android and Apple - for your cell phones or tablets.
I have been teaching yoga, healing martial arts and meditation full time for the last twelve years, and I have seen some very consistent patterns; everyone that I meet is looking for the same things:
More energy, less pain, better balance and to live a more mindful and meaningful life.
I created Bo Yoga because I could see that there were so many people who weren't experiencing these no matter how hard they tried.
Bo Yoga blends the best of yoga, tai chi and meditation using the support of a flexbible and stable prop called a Bo Staff. It's a unique tool which allows you to strech more safely, balance more easily and move more gracefuly.
I hope that you find the wonderful benefits of Bo Yoga and my 3 Weeks to Better Balance Course that many others have already experienced.

Bo Yoga saved me from a fall.
"I live in Chicago and we have long and cold winters with lots of snow. One day I was stepping out of my car and didn't realize that the pavement had frozen into a patch of ice. I have slipped and fallen in the past, but since I have been practicing Bo Yoga recently, this day I caught myself and didn't fall! I am so grateful for Bo Yoga to help me improve my balance and reflexes, it really saved me!"
I can lift my legs better now
“For many years, I’ve noticed that when I get dressed I couldn’t raise my left leg as well as my right leg, especially while putting on pants. I would always have to bend over or sit down when I would put my pants on the left leg. I have been doing traditional yoga for years, but after just two classes of Bo Yoga, I feel less bound up in my legs and I can now put my pants on either leg just as easily!”
