’Sharlaine’ speaks: Sharlaine Sequeira’s, life and mission now: "I always wanted to start something in fitness and motivate and inspire people. I knew that it was not only my need but a need of most women. Even though I love Zumba, I wanted to start something different and one day, by chance, I came across ’Bellyfit’ I plunged into it seriously and completed training. Belly dancing is one of the oldest forms of dance, having its roots in all ancient cultures from the orient, the Eastern hemisphere. Probably the greatest misconception about ’Belly Dancing’ is that it is intended to entertain men from a sexual standpoint, it actually has numerous benefits. ’Bellyfit’, on the other hand, is a modern trademarked, standardized, Holistic Fitness System for women which is a workout designed by Alice Bracegirdle who is the CEO and Co-Founder of ’Bellyfit Enterprises’. Within 60 minutes the movements activate, heal and empower the uniqueness of the female body. A participant, a female, can be anywhere from round age 12 years to age 60 plus. Beyond that there is something called as ’Bellyfit Flow’ for senior citizen women. "It’s about being connected to who we are - strong, sexy and sacred, with or without flat abs! I have successfully conducted several demos so far and reached out to around one thousand women all around Mangaluru city and further on. Soon it will be taken to many more places.”
So, here is your big break girls and ladies.....our own Mangalorean pioneer expert and hero is committed to set you on a great path to health, wellness and beauty - ’Bellyfit’ is the key. So, no more waiting wherever you may be!
