Belly Dance has tremendous, continuous effect in the quality of relaxation, breathing and rhythm, which increases body awareness and sensitivity and contributes to a heightened sense of well-being and self-esteem. And it’s a great way to slim down and tone your entire body. The best part of Belly Dance is that it challenges you to use your body in a controlled and elegant way. It is a sensual, powerful dance that makes you feel feminine as your getting fit!

I created the belly dance instructional DVD Step by Step Belly Dance” as a tool to help you tone up quickly, while getting a great cardio workout, all while you are having fun and learning a new dance form. I actually created it as I was preparing my body for acrobatics. I rocked my abs, legs and core into shape!

The DVD is organized in 5 parts:

A yoga based Warm Up
Combo 1
Combo 2
Combo 3
A yoga based Cool Down.

To get the best results from this 60-minute instructional video I suggest to always start and finish with the warm up and cool down, and in between repeat one of the Combos three times. This way you get a full work out and can really begin to dance with the moves.  The DVD  is built to grow with you. So relax, have fun and dance!
