Lynn over at Actual Scale mentioned this DVD and it sounded intriguing so I ordered it on eBay for $14. Here is the description from Amazon:
Burn calories, work up a sweat and tone muscles you never knew you had!
Join Dolphina in an exhilarating cardiovascular bellydance workout (beneficial to people of all fitness and dance levels) that sculpts, defines and strengthens your core. Experience the freedom and joy of bellydance while raising your heart rate and getting a full body workout.
DVD EXTRAS: Bonus Performance by Dolphina "How to Create Bellydance Costumes" - Dolphina demonstrates how you can create simple costumes with a hip scarf or coin belt and how to select an elaborate ensemble to impress an audience.
Dolphina, "Bellydancer to the Stars," has personally introduced The Goddess Workout to Jessica Alba, Pamela Anderson, Salma Hayek and Heather Locklear. A certified yoga and fitness instructor, she has been featured on hundreds of TV shows and magazines and teaches filled-to-capacity bellydance and burlesque classes.
I really enjoyed it! I was able to catch on pretty quickly. She explains things really well and is also encouraging. I like the fact that she promotes positive body image regardless of your size and encourages embracing your curves. I could definitely feel the muscles being used and my heart rate was up especially doing the camel which is one of the main moves. I need to work on that one for sure. I encourage anyone to try belly dancing and bring out your inner Goddess!
Have a great Sunday everyone! Until next time...
