Benefits Of Using A Balance Ball Yoga

A yoga ball helps to increase lumbar mobility. It also increases your back-muscle strength and your abdominal strength and stability. It increases your body balance and helps you develop an overall control of your body. Moreover, a yoga ball also strengthens your core. The basic idea of using a yoga ball to sit instead of a traditional office chair is that a person puts more effort to remain stable. This forces him to induce his trunk muscles, which eventually help him increase his core strength. It also helps in burning calories as a person is always cautious and putting an effort to sit up straight.


  • The most basic exercise on this is sitting on the ball and slowly bouncing for 30 minutes daily. This helps you develop a proper posture.
  • Another easy exercise is to slouch on the ball and curl up your upper and lower back. When you start bouncing in this posture, you will find your body to find its balance automatically. Furthermore, performing these yoga ball exercises daily will help you develop a good posture in some weeks.
  • A simple yoga ball exercise is to spread your feet around 2 ft apart and place the ball behind your back on a wall. Place your hands on your hips and waist and start bending down in a squatting position. The ball will provide support to your back as you bend. You can slowly increase the difficulty level by holding on to a squatting position for 10-15 seconds.
