Bellyfit®
Bellyfit offers a full workout utilizing elements of dance, yoga and pilates. If you want a class where you can dance, sweat, breathe, and liberate yourself from the daily grind then Bellyfit is the class for you! The cardio dance portion of Bellyfit incorporates movements from belly dance, East Indian, Bollywood and African dance. The core and stretch portions are inspired by yoga and pilates.  Bellyfit is one hour of continuous movement flow without pauses in the music. Each movement in the cardio segments is broken down to give students time to get into the rhythm before moving on to the next section. There are also different layers of movement and levels of intensity, so it is up to the student how she wants to use these levels and layers to produce the intensity she desires. Bellyfit will inspire you laugh, smile, glow and feel genuinely good about yourself afterwards.
