Belly Dance For Health & Fitness
There have been many scientific studies that have proven belly dancing to be beneficial for all kinds of ailments physical problems and diseases. Especially those effecting women. The reason why belly dancing us great for exersise for all ages us because it is low impact. At Tara's class she creates lesson plans that incorporate simple flexibility resistance and moderate cardiovascular exercise as well as safe dance technique. Belly dancing does engage and strengthen the core muscles of the belly pelvis buttocks and lower back. It helps us release fluid into the joints keeping them flexible. Shimmys are a great way to get your cardio going as is fun upbeat easy to follow routines. Good posture, Snake arms and veil dancing engage the upper back and help to tone the arms. Figure rights camels and hip circles give the inner women's muscles a good workout, Stretch and massage. These moves have been scientifically researched in China and proved they really help with bladder and Women's problems.
At this class it is all performed without having to get down on your knees or roll around dirty floors. The only time we get down onto the floor is if we are learning Turkish floor work or balancing props. This is mainly practiced at workshops not within class. If it is done at class there are variations offered so those who may not want to desend down to the floor or can not go down onto the floor have options. When floor work is practiced by those who are inexperienced knee pads and yoga mats are shared to ensure our bodies are cushioned and our knees are protected.
