Belly Dance was born such a long time ago that its ancient origins are likely to be lost in the annals of time. However, this dance keeps growing in its popularity thanks to its seductive sensual movements as well as the many health benefits it affords to dancers. Many people consider belly dance the ultimate way of getting fit as the exercises are suitable for people of all ages, shapes, sizes. Aside from the obvious benefits, this is also a fun and relaxing way of leading a healthy life.

 

Giving You a Body to Die For

The smooth undulating rhythmic pulsating movements of the belly dance emphasizing the natural movements of the body make it a much softer form of exercise in comparison to some other workout routines enabling you to burn off anything up to 300 calories an hour, which when combined with a sensible diet plan can provide an ideal enjoyable, sustainable way of losing weight.

 

What’s more these same exercises also serve to strengthen and tone the muscles going from the neck down to the abdominal and pelvic regions of the body making the body a lot more supple.  It is no accident that certain dance routines used by belly dancers are also used as prenatal exercises in preparation for childbirth.

 

As one ages, these benefits of regular belly dancing will also help prevent or reduce aching joints and potential spinal problems caused through the natural weakening of the muscles so relieving the pressure on the discs which can result in the unnatural curving of the spine. This is usually a lot more prevalent in people who normally lead a more sedentary lifestyle.

 

Improving Your Spiritual and Mental Health

These same smooth gentle movements of the body while belly dancing help you reduce tension and stress, relaxing your mind producing what can only be described as a meditative state caused through the increasing blood circulation throughout your body.

 

As you get more proficient at belly dancing, as your body becomes ever more supple and your movements become evermore graceful and sensual through the way in which you are able to explore the differing movements of your body the result is an ever greater sense of confidence and freedom.

 

This freedom, this feeling of increased sensuality and well-being is even further accentuated through the wearing of seductive belly dance clothing such as harem pants, hip scarves, belly dance zills, necklaces adorned with gold or silver plated coins, coin belts or bras, bangles, canes, Isis wings and Egyptian fringing which show off the body’s curves and enhance the seductive, erotic movements of the dance.
