"Prenatal Bellydance Fitness" -- now available on DVD (WorldDance New York) -- The ancient art of bellydance is a natural and graceful way to stay active during pregnancy and prepare for motherhood.
Originating in ancient dances and rituals related to fertility, family, life cycle and childbirth, bellydance is based on movements that come naturally to the female body. Some bellydance movements mimic the intuitive natural motions associated with pregnancy and childbirth. Others have been traditionally used to move the baby into the best position or to relieve the discomfort of labor.
The organic, flowing, energizing movement of bellydance helps to improve abdominal control and awareness, relieve aches and discomfort associated with pregnancy, promote better circulation, avoid swelling and cramping and prevent excessive weight gain. Bellydance hip movements will tone the muscles of your pelvic floor, whose strength is all-important for the birth, as well as for your postnatal recovery. And, beyond these benefits, it offers women a fantastic motivation to stay beautiful and graceful throughout the pregnancy -- remain in touch with your inner goddess.
This unique dance/workout program has been designed to be safe and effective for pregnancy and follows the guidelines of the American College of Obstetricians & Gynecologists.
"Prenatal Bellydance Fitness" DVD is available at Amazon.com, and distributed to retailers by Navarre Corporation (http://www.navarre.com)
