Proprioception is demonstrated in your ability to locate your body in space. Proprioception is usually poor in those with posture or balance problems which often causes back pain. Your falls are limited when you have better balance. If you are an elderly person, this means Yoga can reduce the appointments you have with the nurse every year as a result of falls – you may not even need to get a nurse in a whole year. This is not for the elderly ones alone, the rest of us can still enjoy postures like Tree Pose which can significantly reduce your instability on and off the mat.
