I’m so very excited and proud to announce that I am enrolled to get Bellyfit Certified!!! Bellyfit is a program intended for women to boost their confidence and achieve the figure of their dreams. This program was rated on the top list of fitness trends in 2011 by Dietsinreview.com. Bellyfit combines several fitness elements together, from a meditation warm-up and cardio to intense steps of belly dancing and bhangra (African dance).

It’s about Movement, Music, Community and Culture.

Bellyfit is the holistic fitness experience for women that blends the power and wisdom of ancient cultures, with the research, technology and trends of the modern world. It is designed to connect you to the deep, primal feminine within, while helping you find strength to deal with modern day stress. Bellyfit Instructors are trained to deliver a class that offers a full body, full of spirit, extraordinary exercise experience, offered in a safe, effective group fitness format. Each class is a seamless fusion of movements inspired by the science of Western fitness, the style and beauty of Cultural Dance and the power of spiritual practices & philosophies from the East.

In the first half hour of the class, burn mega calories, relieve stress and get the sweat flowing with fun, easy to learn cardio moves infused with the ancient and beautiful fundamentals of Belly Dance, Bollywood, Bhangra, African Dance and more. During the second half of the class, enjoy sculpting, toning and tightening with Pilatesinspired core work, a deep yet relaxing Yoga inspired stretch and mindful Mudra Meditation.

Music is the heart and soul of the Bellyfit class experience. All the music used by Bellyfit Instructors is compiled and mixed by our CTO; producer, DJ and musical visionary Rowan Sentesy. DJ Rowan sources music from phenomenal musicians around the globe creating Bellyfit Compilations of the very best ethno-infused techno, tribal rhythms and relaxing ambient tracks available in today’s Ethno-electronic Music Industry. These tracks bring an energetic component to each class that is essential to the unique success of the Bellyfit Experience. From the beginning of the class to the end, the expanding and evolutionary realm of Ethnic Fusion is designed to take you on a powerful journey of personal transformation.
The sonic landscape you will hear in a Bellyfit Class is unlike any other you will ever experience in a group fitness situation. Be inspired and motivated by high energy tribal beats, find relaxation and mental calm with culturally rich ethno-organic sounds and melodies, move beyond thought, and experience the evolution of fusion. Our latest compilation is now available for sale from the Bellyfit Shop.

The Bellyfit Community knows no boundaries of age, size, ability, race or faith. It is growing every day and women of all nations are joining.  Whether you have two left feet, are a professional dancer, just getting into fitness, a seasoned athlete, or somewhere in between, you will be inspired by the beauty, diversity and power of the moves and mantras, and experience a fabulous workout whether it’s your first class or your 100th! As a mind/body/spirit system, Bellyfit helps you care for your entire being in a holistic, safe and highly effective manner, leaving you feeling strong, ready to thrive in your world and ready to make your world thrive. At Bellyfit Headquarters we are committed to supporting our local community and our global community. Connect to your core, find your breath and feel your power. Join us as we set new standards in Holistic Fitness for women.

Cultural Diversity is the inspiration for the Bellyfit System. We believe that we all share the same roots on this planet and that we must now share our wisdom. Much of this wisdom is preserved in our music, dance, ritual and prayer. The Bellyfit Choreographers draw inspiration from many cultural dances and practices and are always expanding their horizons to include more music and moves that not only strengthen the body, but also the being. One world, many moves!

This is such exciting news for me!!! Feeling overwhelmed with gratitude in my life. Looking forward to this teacher training program and the opportunity to offer Bellyfit classes to studios in my community of Daytona Beach, Florida. I will be gone the last weekend of April, resuming classes in May.
