BELLY DANCING WITH POLY-CYSTIC OVARY SYNDROME
One Of The Many Benefits Belly Dancing From An Holistic Point Of View
-Shimmies are a great cardiovascular exercise (gets your heart rate going and your blood pumping around your body resulting in more oxygen around the body and weight loss)
-Hip lifts, Drops, Twists and slides are fantastic for your waist area. Unlike sit ups that focus on the six pack area - these isolated belly dance movements incorporate the obliques. If we dont use obliques we will eventually loose our waists... this is where new mothers make the mistake in thinking it all about sit ups. I like to teach my students zip ups... an exersise many pilates fanatics use. Every pilates fan I have met has good core stability..no matter their ages or shape.
-Belly pose or dancers posture incorporate the core muscles which are the most important muscles in our body. With out them we would not be able to stand up. The core muscles are situated from the diaphragm area down stomach to the pelvis around to you glute muscles (bum) as well as the lower back. When we learn how to contract and relax these muscles properly we train our bodies in positive posture and we keep our bodies young. The chest and shoulder area as well as the thighs and weight distribution of the feet also play an important roll in positive body posture.
