CORE STABILIZATION! Try this not so simple exercise to build stabilization in your trunk. It's the 4-5 month child development phase in DNS (Dynamic Neuromuscular Stabilization). .
Start with your feet on the floor, sinking your ribcage and brace your abdominal wall, then float the legs up one at a time bringing your knees as wide as your shoulders and your feet as narrow as your hips keeping the feet a little higher than your knees. BREATHE INTO THE LOWER BELLY, WAIST and LOWER BACK.
Look to one side first, and then using your TRUNK (not your legs and arms), follow the direction of your gaze, moving as one unit. To come back, look up first allowing the body to follow, being mindful not to "flop" on your back.
IMPORTANT! Avoid extension in your back through the entire event. Your body will always choose the path of least resistance! When you allow extension to occur in the back, it becomes easier. It's not meant to be easy. SINK YOUR RIBCAGE AND BRACE THE WHOLE TIME!
