Finding Balance

“Finding Balance,” I’ve actually grown to hate that term. The idea of finding balance implies there is a perfection we need to reach. A golden carrot that we can grab and once we achieve it, that balance will be eternal. Never fluctuating. And if we fall off that balance podium, we are failing in some way. In life, especially as working moms, we are regularly told by commercials, magazines, yoga instructors, therapists, “you need to find balance.” And yes, we need to have down time. We need that “me” time away from the kids, away from work, etc. But I’ve got to be honest, I’m a much more “balanced” person when life is at its craziest. A day off, or a an afternoon with nothing to do, makes me way more anxious than when I’m running from school drop offs to training clients to auditions to school pick ups and shopping/meal planning and laundry in between. Down time puts me on edge, and productivity makes me, well, happy. Down right happy! So if happiness = balance, then balance = busy for me.

While balance in life is not the traditional meaning for me, finding balance in my body is absolutely essential. Many things can create imbalance in your body – overuse, fatigue, sitting too long at a desk or in a  car, carrying a baby…the list goes on. If you are a pole dancer, you probably have a “good” invert side and you have most definitely built the obliques on that side more than the other, creating imbalance. Once imbalance starts, it can lead to muscular and joint dysfunction and most likely pain and injury down the road.

To create balance in your core, your obliques must come into play. These are the muscles along the side of your torso and help with stabilizing your core, hips and pelvic control (moms!). Here’s a basic oblique/cross body exercise to start with. Lay on your back and extend one leg straight, keeping the other leg bent for stability. Reach your opposite arm above your head and draw your navel to the floor. Lift your shoulder off the floor and reach your extended arm up while lifting your extended leg up. Try to touch your toes or shin with your hand. Return to your starting position. Repeat 12-15 times for 2-3 sets. And for “balance” be sure to train both sides.

As always, check with a doctor before beginning an exercise regimen and these videos are for entertainment and educational purposes only. 🙂
