Fitness Pilates for bellydancers – 8 minute sequence

As the temperature drops (here in the UK) we’re digging out the chunky jumpers and huddling over our bowls of hot soup. I LOVE getting warm and cosy when it’s cold outside!

The downside to all this cosy-ness is that it can involve sitting on our bums more than usual as we strive to get snug. (For instance, we might drive journeys that we walked during the Summer.)

It’s so important for all of us to keep our joints and muscles mobile, especially us dancers.

Becoming inactive means that your posture and overall poise, strength and quality of movement will very likely take a bit of a slump (literally and metaphorically!)

The good news is, it doesn’t take much to keep your dancing feeling good and looking fabulous during the unappealing chilly months. I’ll show you how easy it is in this week’s new style of express class.

Join me for a speedy Fitness Pilates for Bellydancers sequence which will maintain your upper body posture and strength. No equipment needed and you hardly need any space!

Why not stop what you’re doing right now and dive on in, it’s just short of 8 minutes so you’ll be done in a flash!

I’d love to know what you thought of this Fitness Pilates for bellydancers express class. Be sure to leave a comment on the YouTube page and give it a thumbs up so I know you dig this kind of thing.
