Sadly, in our culture we tend to see belly dance as simply a dance of seduction — reserved for the young and firm-bodied.
Yet, belly dancing is so much more than that, say Dondi Dahlin, an acclaimed dancer, speaker, and author… and Titanya Dahlin, the founder of Energy Medicine Dance.
These vivacious sisters teach belly dance as a form of energy medicine that’s been performed for thousands of years by women of all ages.
In this 3-minute video, Dondi explains the energy medicine of belly dance and how it can help you heal old traumas, increase groundedness and presence in the moment, open your heart chakra, and experience true joyfulness.
