My belly dance videos

My belly dance videos

I’ve been looking for a low-impact workout that I can do at home — I don’t have time to go to the gym, and I certainly wouldn’t want to pay for that. Also, I want something that won’t hurt my back. For the longest time, I thought I just had bad posture…but I found out only last year that I had scoliosis.  I’ve been visiting a physical therapist to help improve my back, but eventually, I stopped visiting because the exercises were so boring. Sorry, no offense meant, Corrinne & Rhodz….:D

Then I heard Violy-sensei said she was doing belly dancing at home. Out of curiosity, I checked out some belly dancing videos at SM and bought a couple. I figured that if I didn’t like them, I can always put them up for sale on Ebay. So that same night, I watched the videos, which were made by these twin Indian ladies named Veena and Neena Bidasha – aka the Bellytwins.

Man…I was hooked right from the start!! These pretty girls are such a delight to watch…and their routines are easy to follow and low impact. Certainly good for my back. So for the past weeks, I’ve been doing 30-minute belly dance exercises almost every night. It’s so much fun that exercising does not feel like a chore or obligation. I bought a couple more videos from them, just so I have a different routine every time.

I’ve even memorized one of their opening spiels…Hi, I’m Veena. And I’m Neena. We’ve practiced belly dancing for many years, and have trained with some of the best teachers in the world. La lang, adik lang. 😀

After each work out, I watch their dances at the end of each video. They are so beautiful — Veena, especially, is a very good dancer. I think it was her who appears at almost all of the dances at the end. Also, during the routines, I always look at her (the girl at the right side of the screen) because she is more graceful. I watch a video every night even if I don’t feel like exercising…I just wanted to see them dance 🙂
