I love what it does to my torso....and my big thing was trying to keep my tail bone down in tribal, Boop lift, I like that!

Patti, try a warm wash cloth over your eyes....and feel better!!

Heart beat as one
To the rhythm of the drum
Heart and soul may we come
Together
Fearless and spirited
Shameless and beautiful
With purpose and inner strength
Dance until you live again

Much love and Bellykisses,
~Lana~

Somebody -- might have been Hadia of Canada? -- called the upright posture the "Egyptian Underwire" because it lifts you and makes you look like you've gained a cup size (or that your existing cup size is firmer!)

That cracks me up when I think about. When I slouch I'm an A. Upright posture makes me a B. And without surgery! LOL

Ruthie: I did not get keeping my shoulders on my back and activating the muscles under my arms to keep my chest lifted until I did yoga for a while. The whole innerbody bright and pulling your arms in to the sockets really clicked in yoga and I had sort of relearn snake arms the RIGHT way. LOL

As a beginner I find posture so difficult. It should be the easiest thing but in trying to remember how to do each move, I forget to stand up straight...it's the same problem I have with my arms...I get to concentrating on what my feet/legs/hips are doing and my arms start to droop and look silly. In short, this is a GREAT challenge for me ;) My instructor would be most pleased if I didn't have to be reminded every 5 minutes to stand up straight!

So, I'm tired and have a headache. This week is ultra easy.

Posture is the key word. Engage all your muscles and hit belly dance posture (for which ever style you do - or all) at least five times during a day.

Also, try to drink one extra glass of water.

Post here with how you do.
