1. Belly Dancing

image7

Belly dance is a beautiful expression of body movements used to depict stories and emotions.  It is primarily a torso-driven dance, with an emphasis on articulations of the hips and isolations of the torso muscles, rather than on movements of the limbs through space. Arm and hand movements are important however they are typically accent movements to add a different feeling or emphasis. 

Many of the movements characteristic of belly dance can be grouped into the following categories: 

  • Percussive movements: Staccato movements, most commonly of the hips, used to punctuate the music or accent a beat. Typical movements in this group include hip drops, vertical hip rocks, outwards hip hits, hip lifts and hip twists. Percussive movements using other parts of the body can include lifts or drops of the ribcage and shoulder accents.
  • Fluid movements: Flowing, sinuous movements in which the body is in continuous motion, used to interpret melodic lines and lyrical sections in the music, or modulated to express complex instrumental improvisations. These movements require a great deal of abdominal muscle control. Typical movements include horizontal and vertical figures of 8 or infinity loops with the hips, horizontal or tilting hip circles, and undulations of the hips and abdomen. These basic shapes may be varied, combined and embellished to create an infinite variety of complex, textured movements.
  • Shimmies, shivers and vibrations: Small, fast, continuous movements of the hips or ribcage, which create an impression of texture and depth of movement. Shimmies are commonly layered over other movements, and are often used to interpret rolls on the or riq or fast strumming of the oud or qanun. There are many types of shimmy, varying in size and method of generation. Some common shimmies include relaxed, up and down hip shimmies, straight-legged knee-driven shimmies, fast, tiny hip vibrations, twisting hip shimmies, bouncing 'earthquake' shimmies, and relaxed shoulder or ribcage shimmies.

In addition to these torso movements, dancers in many styles will use level changes, travelling steps, turns and spins. The arms are used to frame and accentuate movements of the hips, for dramatic gestures, and to create beautiful lines and shapes with the body.  Other movements may be used as occasional accents, such as low kicks and arabesques, backbends, and head tosses.

3. Reiki and CRystal Healing

There’s a lot to be said about crystal healing as a complimentary medicine practice that uses crystals and gemstones for a wide variety of healing and therapeutic properties. Crystals are natural. They are created from minerals deep inside the earth. Each crystal has a unique healing property derived from these minerals from which it is composed. The action of crystals may be described as subtle however, crystals are capable of amplifying, focusing, directing, absorbing, diffusing and transmitting different levels of healing energy.

Crystal healing has been used since the dawn of the human race. It is a fact that crystals emit tiny electrical impulses which activate the human body’s neurological system in a subtle manner. Different crystals possess their own unique energy signal, producing different effects.

Crystal Healing is the art of laying on stones (crystals and gems) in coordination with the body’s energy field, energy centres and energy pathways also known as the aura, the chakras and the meridians. Correct placement of crystals on the body will promote emotional and mental harmony. It is in this state that the body experiences the perfect conditions to heal naturally.  Crystal healing is a fascinating topic, and so much has been written and studied about these bright, lustrous and natural objects across a wide range of cultures. Though our personal beliefs in the healing properties of crystals vary, whether or not you adhere to crystal healing, know that these beautiful stones provide ideal objects upon which to focus positive intentions. Much like filling a space with plants improves the feeling of the space, we find that crystals and gemstones infuse our homes and workspace with positive vibes.
