In the time of the Goddess, the female body was sacred and worshipped as the

in ceremonies where the Goddess was worshipped. Bellydance is an intoxicating
dance that can be traced back over thousands of years to Indian, Oriental and
Middle Eastern cultures. The powerful and sensual movements serve as a journey

pleasurable and uplifting way to completely tone your body. Delphina brings

Bellydance is a total workout that can powerfully heal and unite the body, the
mind and the spirit. Providing an intense, non-impact and fat-burning exercise
that tones and sculpts muscle, it is an excellent cardio-vascular workout for
the body. Women who bellydance feel more confident and at ease with their figures,
finding that their flexibility has increased and that they have enhanced their
You gently massage away tension during the dance and you will feel good, with
greater vitality, improved ability to relax and greater mental clarity. Bellydance
can heal internally and you can massage the thyroid gland which regulates the
metabolism. You can also open and align the seven energy centres the
charkas balancing the central nervous system and allowing the spirit
to flow freely above your physical and astral bodies.
Delphina also warns that you should be careful of your intentions when you shimmy.
Shimmying is a very powerful Goddess movement. It is said to have the power
to create earthquakes and thunderstorms!
Dolphina is a powerful teacher, author, activist and businesswoman who has overcome
tremendous odds to create a company whose sole purpose is to support and empower
women. A student of the ancient art of bellydance since the age of four, Dolphina
has shimmied for bohemians and royalty alike in nightclubs, palaces, fashion
shows and movies, including From Russia With Love. She has also featured
on the hugely successful television series, Sex And The City.
Dolphina demonstrates her art beautifully; Bellydance For Beginners DVD
takes you through this fabulous dance routine that benefits your mind, body
and your spirit. There is a detailed explanation of how and why you do each
movement and she cautions against pushing yourself beyond the place that you
feel comfortable. Her fluid movements come with practice and she emphasises
the need to warm up at the beginning as with any other exercise
and cool down after the workout.
As usual with Acacia's healthy, joyful living DVDs, you are encouraged to go
at your own pace and to check with a doctor before undertaking any strenuous
exercise particularly if you have a pre-existing condition. You can take
the energies through the body in gentle, flowing movements. Dolphina focuses
on breathing and explains alternative moves you should try while you are mastering
the co-ordination of hip and arm movements.
The Bellydance For Beginners DVD is created and demonstrated by Dolphina
who is also the Executive Producer. It is Produced by Diane Gaidry-Thelemaque
and Jacques Gaidry-Thelemaque and Directed by Whiteney Ransick. The Director
of Photography is Jeffrey Weaver. Dolphina says that with bellydance you can
"spread out the love that the world badly needs."
The beautiful music is based on traditional Sufi music that was inspired by
a Turkish poet who was in turn inspired by a Dervish connection to God. Dolphina
urges: "Open yourself up and allow yourself to be transported to the playful,
magical and mystical place which is bellydance..."
