Proprioception: Your 6th Sense

Have you wondered how you're able to stand, walk, and drive a car without having to look at your limbs?

It's all because you of your Proprioception 
"The ability to sense the position, location, orientation and movement of the body and its parts.”

Improving proprioception has many benefits for everyone from athletes to seniors:
  • Improved balance and stability  
  • Improved agility to help you quickly change your body’s direction in a situation such as tripping up a step  
  • Improved overall coordination  
  • Reduced risk of injury and helps to prevent falls  
  • Improved body reaction time to outside changes such as stepping on uneven terrain or something slippery

Movement should be approached like life - with enthusiasm, joy and gratitude – for movement is life and life is movement, and we get out of it what we put into it.”
