A New Kind of Fitness

Sports - July 30th, 2010

If you haven’t heard of Bellyfit, I am sure it won’t be long before you, and many other women, will be praising the benefits of this inspired fitness system.

Developed by the fabulous Alice Bracegirdle, Bellyfit is bringing movement and sensuality to women in fitness studios across North America, Europe and soon, Asia.

Bellyfit connects women with their inner goddess by blending the power and wisdom of ancient cultures with a solid understanding of fitness. Each class offers a fusion of movements inspired by the science of Western fitness, the style and beauty of cultural dance (such as belly dance, Bollywood, Bhangra, and African dance), and the power of spiritual practices and philosophies from the East (like yoga).

I recently participated in a weekend training to be a Bellyfit instructor, and I really find great joy in how this practice brings fun and flow to my body and deepens my awareness of my body in a new and different way.

Om shanti!
