Tandem Stand with Brain Boosts (balance exercise video)

The Tandem Stand is a great balance exercise. We do this all the time in our classes and it's really popular.

In this video, we add some brain boosts. Improve your balance and sharpen your brain at the same time! 


This video is only 4 minutes long so it's easy to fit in, however busy your day is.

Better balance means you can feel confident and steady on your feet. It's easier to go out, see friends and actively participate in life when you aren't worried about your balance.

When you are doing this exercise, remember to: 

  • Stand up tall
  • Look straight ahead
  • Stand next to a support which you can hold onto (just in case you feel unsteady)

I hope you enjoy doing the tandem stand with brain boosts!
