Turkish Bellydance for Fitness with Murat Demirtas
Wednesdays, 7-8 pm. Starting Feb 5.
This is not your typical belly dance class. You will improve your cardiovascular capacity and increase muscle strength through basic and unique movements. While the focus will be on the hips and abs, this belly dance helps you to vibrate all the muscles in your body, which in turn helps to increase cell activity. Vibration is key to any health regime in fitness, but belly dance vibration will magnify this element to a higher degree. You increase internal strength, becoming more confident in yourself and freeing your personality through the belly dance workout. You will release your stress, smile, laugh, have fun and sweat.
