At home, you can do three basic warm-up exercises. Do not be afraid of the new! Belly dance is a great way to become more confident, healthy and beautiful.
But first, let’s deal with the workout. Obligatory warm-up before belly dancing is also articular gymnastics, which enhances blood circulation in the pelvic organs. The muscles of the abdomen knead the internal organs of the abdomen and pelvis (it is here that stagnation is most often observed).
Place your feet parallel to each other, slightly wider than your shoulders, bend your knees slightly and make alternate movements with your legs, as if you were walking in place. Heels from the floor, while not tearing away, and the pelvis sways in time with the movements. Then add soft circular movements of the pelvis, trying as much as possible to make the pubic bone forward and up, and the tailbone to take back. The upper part of the body is not involved in the exercise.
Stand straight, relax your neck and shoulders. As far as possible, move the chest to the right and left so that the shoulder line remains parallel to the floor, and the head does not lean. The movements should be smooth and at first may seem complicated, but you will certainly get comfortable.
Exercises for the abdomen
Stand up evenly and comfortably, pull your stomach in as far as you can and stand until you feel uncomfortable (the more trained your muscles become, the longer you can stay in the desired position). Then relax your stomach, push it forward. Repeat the exercise several times (start four times daily, and, over time, you can go up to 12 or more times). Try to be in each position for at least 2 seconds. At the same time, breathing is not necessary.
