Many are familiar with Belly dance, but few understand its amazing Health Benefits.

The graceful hip drops, rolls, and pivots of this dance form utilize muscle groups in the abdomen, pelvis, trunk, spine, and neck, working with the body instead of against it. Raqs Sharqi is based on movements that come naturally to the female form. There is a wealth of health benefits awaiting those who practice this form of dance.

  • Improved posture and muscle toning

  • Weight loss

  • Helps maintain pelvic floor tone

            (makes an excellent post-natal exercise)

  •  Stress reduction

Belly dancing strengthens and tones a woman's

entire body slowly and evenly with very little

 impact. Belly dancing is a gift to all women and

its practice can, over time, effectively tone your

body into its personal, optimal physical shape.

This is true regardless of your body type or skeletal

proportions. Arms become stronger,

posture improves, bellies tighten, legs and glutes

strengthen. There is no one "type" of body that's

 right for belly dance. It is designed to benefit all

women's muscular, physical structures. Plus it's a lot

of fun, so try it out and  see for yourself what

 it can do for you.
