The discussion of what balance is explains why and how balance is lost or gained, and what kinds of activities best enhance balance. He sets out a reasonable goal for anyone who’s willing to work towards greater balance and lessen their chances of falling and being injured. George Locker’s Falling Is Not an Option was of particular interest to me as I have had knee problems for some years now, and balance is of considerable concern to me.

Learn how athletes in sports such as surfing, skating, and skiing remain stable and upright standing on one bent leg, and the implications for creating balance exercises.

Apart from T’ai Chi practice and teaching, I am a tenant's rights attorney in NYC; I ski and kayak in the Adirondacks; and I have a magnificent daughter. Rachel shares illustrated gripping stories of being out in the mountains, being stalked by a mountain lion, sleeping in the snow in -20 degrees, dodging an avalanche by split seconds and having to keep her cool when being rescued after an injury when skiing miles from anywhere. The author, George Locker, a long-time student of martial arts and teacher of T’ai Chi, adapted the lessons of these ancient arts into an approach he has trademarked as “Postural Retraining". I loved this book because it not only deals with improving balance and stability but also how to improve the ability to turn, maneuver yourself around, and walk with increased confidence.Postural Retraining™ is an incremental method that emphasizes simple positions, small movements, and increased duration.

The exercises are so easy to follow and I believe anyone can gain something from this book to improve overall mobility, bone structure, or posture. Because of its focus on developing and maintaining automatic balance skills, Falling Is Not an Option: A Way to Lifelong Balance is a resource both for health professionals and for their patients. Falling Is Not an Option: A Way to Lifelong Balance is a work of non-fiction that offers advice and guidance for life in the health and fitness sub-genre and was penned by author George Locker.
