Hello, my name is Amira, and I invite you on a journey of learning to take charge of your body and your own birthing process. It is simple, it feels good, and it is so effective that thousands of expecting mothers across the globe are rediscovering the benefits that prenatal Belly Dance and Yoga can have on both mother and baby. It has been my mission in life to bring the wonderful benefits of Belly Dance to women around the world. Now, I would like to share with you the techniques I have learned from other masters of Middle Eastern Dance and Yoga, and which I put to use during my own pregnancy during the shooting of this DVD.
My Bellydance And Yoga For Pregnancy DVD will provide you with a perfect balance of well thought out routines for an expectant mother to prepare herself for the wonderful and challenging journey ahead. I?ll gently lead you through warm-ups, exercises, and cool downs. I?ll cover the moves that are beneficial, and point out those that should be avoided during pregnancy. You will learn the benefits of stretching and exercise, learn to relax, to breathe, and to center yourself with confidence and feminine grace, leaving you feeling invigorated and re-energized. I give clear explanations every step of the way with alternate, modified versions of many moves. My goal with this DVD is to give you the tools and encouragement you need on the road to a healthy lifestyle and a smooth, happy pregnancy..
