Dance of the Womb: belly dance for pregnancy & birth – DVD review
BUY this DVD from our online Shop
This DVD is a very good resource for any woman who would like to use belly dance as a form of exercise during pregnancy, under the guidance of an expert (Maha has been running belly dance for birth classes in Australia for over a decade and has practiced bellydance during her own three pregnancies). Also, the routines in this DVD are aimed at helping you relax and gain confidence in your body. The fact that Maha’s tone of voice is very soothing and relaxing is also of great help. The 2 DVDs in the box set are very inspiring and help women being less scared of the whole delivery experience.
This is a DVD set with 2 discs. The first one is aimed at movements and dances, while the second one contains a brief music video and a short film in which Maha shares her experience of giving birth naturally.
DVD 1 content:
• Warm up routine.
• Dance routines, which include routines for: hip circles; spiral movements; figures of 8; the cervix; hands and arms; chest.
• 7 minute relaxation section.
DVD 2 content:
• Music video with images of Maha during pregnancy.
• Short film about Maha’s experience of giving birth at home in water. The film also includes an interview with two midwives.
Any level, including beginners. Dance experience is not required; however, I think that viewers should have at least a grasp of basic bellydance movements, in order to make the most out of the routines in this DVD.
