Loss of balance is a risk factor in falls. Exercise program such as Hatha Yoga has shown to improve balance. The aim of this study was to determine the effect of 12-weeks modified-Hatha Yoga exercise on static balance. Method: A Quasi Experimental One Group Pretest-Posttest Design was used in the study. Subjects were recruited from Harapan Ibu Nursing Home Semarang by purposive sampling based on the inclusion and exclusion criteria. The group consisted of 37 female over the age of 50 who performed 60 minutes of modified-Hatha Yoga three times a week for 12 weeks. Data was obtained from time measurement of Balance Rail Test in the early study, 4th week, 8th week, and 12th week. Friedman Test and Wilcoxon Test analyzed the distinction of time on the balance test. The distinction was significant when p<0,05. Result: Based on collected data from 37 subjects, there was an improvement on average time of balance test after 12 weeks of exercise (from 6,0 seconds to 10,0 seconds). The statistic analysis showed a significant distinction on improvement time of balance test (p<0.05). Conclusion: The 12-weeks modified-Hatha Yoga exercise helps to improve static balance.
