Product description

Product Description

This unique dance/workout program has been designed to be safe and effective for pregnancy and follows the guidelines of the American College of Obstetricians & Gynecologists. Organic, flowing, energizing movement of bellydance helps to improve abdominal control and awareness, relieve aches and discomfort associated with pregnancy, promote better circulation, avoid swelling and cramping and prevent excessive weight gain. Bellydance hip movements will tone the muscles of your pelvic floor, whose strength is all-important for the birth, as well as for your postnatal recovery. And, beyond all these benefits, it offers a fantastic motivation to stay beautiful and graceful throughout the pregnancy - in touch with your inner goddess!

Review

You don't have to be pregnant to get tremendous benefit from the instruction on this DVD; if you're someone who needs gentle exercise but hates to "exercise," this is a great one to have in your DVD collection, because even though you get the advantages of exercise, such as relaxation, stress relief, and over time, body toning, you will feel as though you're dancing from the start. Starting with 4 warm-ups that have movements that prepare you and become the basis for a short dance combination, the choreography is so expertly done that you can feel the release of tension immediately. By the time you've done the final "Cool Down," you'll be refreshed and invigorated. For those that want an easier option on some of the movements, there is an insert that comes on the screen with Naia demonstrating a simpler move. Naia, at 7 months pregnant, is so incredibly beautiful and graceful, she's an inspiration to those who are pregnant, and who may feel out of sorts and even have a touch of the "uglies." That applies also to those who may not be expecting, but maybe have a couple of unwanted pounds on their hips to lose! Naia demonstrates the moves with clarity, and her narration, with a lovely soft voice, is instructive and a pleasure to listen to. Once you have the movements learned, you also have the option to play this DVD without the narration, just with music, which is by bellydance expert, dancer and composer Jihan, and very pleasing. Neon, the Russian born beauty who is a dazzling dancer and teacher, did the choreography, and it is perfect for anyone who wants not only prenatal fitness, but stress release after a hard day of work, or gentle exercise if you're out of shape or over 50. You'll feel like you had a trip to the oasis after this session with Naia! --amazon.com (US)

Are you tired of the run-of-the-mill aerobic workout videos for pregnancy? Try something new, fun, and energizing! Pregnancy is a time of transition, change, and growth physically and emotionally. With the ups and downs through this amazing experience of your body, reward yourself with some time of rejuvenation for your body and spirit! Prenatal Bellydance offers a unique alternative to conventional prenatal workouts. Belly dance is not only physically beneficial in offering a fulfilling workout, relieving muscle and joint tension and discomfort, but also in helping you to feel beautiful, sexy, and comfortable with your changing body. With movements that flow with the natural rhythm of your body, skillfully and knowledgeably adapted for safety and effectiveness during pregnancy, you can groove your body and boost your mood with this prenatal bellydance workout. Naia, the host, takes you through a smooth warm-up, then step-by-step through each movement of a dance routine. The movements are then combined into dance combination segments, piece by piece, in a flowing manner. Everything is fully demonstrated by Naia and some movements even have an alternative offered for your comfort and fitness level. You are then ready to combine all the dance combinations together into one beautiful belly dance routine! The DVD ends with Naia's cool-down movements. All segments are accompanied by fun and movement-inspiring Middle Eastern music. I appreciated that the music is soothing and flowing, not boisterous or shrill. One track of the dance routine offers Naia's instruction with the music. A separate track offers just the music without voice-over, if you'd like to perform the routine without instruction, or just move to the music all on your own. The movements are beautifully and skillfully demonstrated, the video and sound quality are excellent. I think this DVD offers a good level of workout for moderation in pregnancy. Experienced belly dancers may find the routine basic, as I did, so they need to keep in mind that the routine is designed to be completely appropriate for prenatal exercise, keeping belly dance safe and healthy for pregnancy. With this in mind, I found the routine very enjoyable! Beginners will find this a liberating and enjoyable introduction to belly dance. Some previous dance experience may be helpful, but certainly not necessary. This is a workout that allows you to just go with the flow and just learn as you go, you're doing this for yourself afterall...the important part is to enjoy the movement, music, and some much needed time nurturing your beautiful self and baby! --amazon.com (US)

LOVE this video. I purchased it right before my 3rd trimester and wish I would have bought it earlier. It's easy to do in loose comfortable clothes (I still can't get the quick moving steps down though). It gets your heart rate up and really stretches your back and hips well. I haven't been able to do it a lot because I have had really bad sciatic nerve pain (from the way my baby is sitting) but really look forward to doing the workout after baby to get my shape back! You can do this video with spoken and shown instruction or without spoken (so you could make up your own steps to the music if you wanted). Excellent video-I think it's a good workout for people that aren't pregnant also! --amazon.com (US)
