Fundamental belly dance movements have been used for centuries to help ease the discomforts of pregnancy, prepare mom and baby for a healthy delivery, reduce pain during labor, and accelerate healing and recovery after birth. Belly dance is a joyful celebration of the female body and all it can do. Now pregnant with her first child, veteran belly dance instructor Isabel Asra is thrilled to have the opportunity to help women enhance the childbearing experience through the ancient art of belly dance.
This class incorporates conditioning exercises, fun and easy dance routines, and gentle stretching. Special emphasis will be given to strengthening the pelvic floor and core muscles. All movements are geared towards minimizing diastasis recti, a separation of the abdominal muscles that commonly occurs during pregnancy, and can leave women with a lasting tummy bulge and greater vulnerability to injury if abdominal muscles are exercised incorrectly. The movements in this class are designed to be gentle, safe and beneficial for women who are experiencing or recovering from a normal, healthy pregnancy, and have been cleared by their health care providers for light to moderate exercise. Those who are planning to conceive are welcome as well. Come to class properly nourished and hydrated!
