How can I build stability in my pelvic muscles?

Improve Balance by Strengthening the Pelvic Muscles

Strong pelvic muscles help your balance by supporting your torso. Try this simple exercise, known as an extended leg bridge pose, to strengthen pelvic muscles: Lie on your back with your knees bent and feet flat on the floor, with your arms extended along your sides and your palms facing down. Use your gluteal muscles to lift your pelvis to a diagonal line with your knees. Keeping your thighs parallel, extend the right leg fully. Hold for 5 seconds and slowly return to the starting position. Try for 2 sets of 8-10 repetitions.
