I was mentioned in a blog post by the lovely Emma of Emma Nutrition after we had a back and forth email conversation about the benefits of belly dance. She quotes me as saying
“we celebrate the wobbly bits, we wiggle and jiggle and giggle. We can see that a curvy dancer looks beautiful, we see that women of all shapes and sizes and ages attend the class, and it is not the size that determines how well we belly dance.” I also pointed out an amazing study done only last year in Brazil on the emotional and physical benefits of belly dance on a group of women with fibromyalgia, check out the link or Emma’s blog to find out the results! (I like to keep you in suspence, though I might blog about it another day). Even if you yourself, do not suffer from fibromyalgia, the secondary symptoms of pain, stress, fatigue and coping with difficulties can apply to many of us. Happy reading, and happy jiggling and giggling!
