Today, we are celebrating the birth of the beautiful and most graceful Belly Dancer, Samia Gamal. This beauty queen filled our life with happiness and grace, just the sight of her dancing made our day. She aged beautifully and her death was a great loss to the dancing world.
Belly dancing is an art where your body becomes an instrument that compliments the song you are dancing to. Contrary to people’s belief it’s not just about the fun. Belly dancing has amazing benefits to your body and mind, and you can do it at the comfort of your home.
Here is why we think we should follow her dancing steps:
If your work load is too much or the kids are driving you crazy, then belly dancing is the answer. Blast your favorite tunes and get dancing. You will be surprised by how relaxed it makes you. Belly Dancing, gently stretches and uses these vulnerable muscle groups, and as they are utilized, blood flow increases and lactic acid is flushed away. Stressed muscles relax as they are gently exercised.
Did you know that losing weight can be fun? Belly Dancing can burn up to 300 calories per hour. This estimate will vary, of course, depending on the intensity of your dancing. Combined with a healthy diet that involves sensible eating, it can without a doubt be part of a sound weight loss program.
Back pain relief
We are constantly looking for ways to feel better and to treat our existing pains without medicines. Back pain is now reported by over 80% of adults, and the numbers continue to increase as our lives become increasingly sedentary. Belly Dancing will help you feel more relieved by strengthening the deep core muscles that support the spine. Just make sure that you practice it with good posture, otherwise dancing may instead aggravate an existing back condition.
Easier child birth
Studies now confirm that belly dance, through its strengthening and lengthening of the pelvic floor muscles, is in fact great pre and post natal exercise. Increased blood circulation to these regions also delivers more oxygen to the developing fetus. Women who are pregnant, or who plan to become pregnant, should consult their doctor first to make sure belly dance as a prenatal exercise is appropriate for their body.
Music can effect your mood drastically, so Imagine dancing to it. If you are feeling down, then get dancing. It will instantly make you feel happy. There is something about moving every single muscle in your body to your favorite tune that makes it so satisfying. The costumes are enough to make you feel like you own the world.
So what are you waiting for, channel your inner Samia Gamal and get your sexy on!
