Dance of a body and soul of

Already half a year I take the Indian dancing classes. Though it would be more logical to tell “still“, that in perfection to seize technology of the Indian dance, 6 - 7 years are required, on average. This that line after which the dancer will be able to train pupils and to step on the stage with the whole solo program. To begin the true professional to train a little just daily, and it is necessary also to acquire huge layer of knowledge of the Indian mythology and religion, to plunge into difficult and many-sided culture of India.

Initially Indian dance - dance religious, temple. Dancing, the person communicates good luck. As it is told in sacred Indian books:“ There is no other prayer and other sacrifice which would be so pleasant to God“. In modern India eight classical dancing styles remained. Bharat - natyam in which I am engaged, one of the most ancient. It differs in strict geometricity of lines, special elegance and symmetry of movements, faultless rhythm. In Bharat - a natyama all muscles including front - expression of emotions and feelings by means of a mimicry (abkhinaya) its integral part are involved. By means of a sign language, called by “hosts“ and “mudra“, the narration is led.

Training begins

with a greeting - a namaskar. At first we welcome Earth - mother, touching by earth fingers, and then an eye, then we express respect to God and the viewer by means of an “andzhala“ hasta (the same gesture when greet the put palms at the level of a breast in the Indian tradition). Namaskar is carried out always at the beginning of training and in its end to apologize to the highest forces for the blows struck in the course of dance. After that - the main steps - to an adav. There are about one hundred variations to an adav which accustom before beginning to study basic elements.

Here such here necessary theoretical minimum which I acquired for half a year. In the 27 I, of course, do not set the high professional purposes (though goodness knows - miracles sometimes happen). And here you receive pleasures from dancing process so many that there is a wish to share with all. Besides, dance perfectly helps to correct a figure and promotes improvement of an organism in general.

the Main position in the Indian dance - aramand - a polupliya with the developed legs and an emphasis on little fingers of legs. Try to hold this position within an hour and you will soon find at yourself on a body all existing muscles of hips and buttocks. No cellulitis of it will sustain, and, eventually, the enemy will be won. Hands are very actively involved in dance too, and not only bicepses and tricepses work, but also wrists and fingers work at full capacity.

I Remember

how even at the beginning of occupations surprised me, are how disobedient and my brushes are not flexible though I never ranked myself as shirkers. Just in usual life we use not all opportunities of our organism. The same touches also neck muscles. If for east woman to move a neck to a step of music does not make special work, then for us is the whole art.

A where the diaphragm is, straight off in general it is impossible to define. And sense of expression “to twist a disk a diaphragm at absolutely motionless hips and the top part of a trunk“ began to open gradually only now. As well as secret how to keep eternal youth. The most artful places giving true age of the woman are just a neck and hands. Looking at our teacher dancing already 15 years, you understand what result is possible on condition of active work of these muscles. Not incidentally Indians speak:“ While there is a flexibility in fingers - there is youth“.

Besides, by means of dance it is possible to restore the health, the Indian classical tradition of musical arts is inconceivable without doctoring. The Indian dance is based on difficult elements of the yoga opening potentials of a body and reason. Even many modern scientists note curative influence of ancient dances on a human body. For example, researches showed that training in classical Indian style (including Bharat - natyam) both short-sightedness, and far-sightedness help to treat.

I Remember

how in the childhood, after planned inspection of sight I was directed to gymnastics for eyes. To regularly attend these classes there was not enough patience, and soon I threw this business. On dances with surprise found, some exercises of an abkhinaya (it as we remember, art of a pantomime) are how similar to remedial gymnastics from my childhood. It is a pity that did not begin to dance about 15 years ago, you would look, it was not necessary to carry contact lenses.

Also Indian dance is capable to normalize pressure and to strengthen heart. Beating off various rhythmic drawings legs it is possible to achieve both increase of pressure at hypotonia, and its decreases at a hypertension. Traditionally Indians dance barefoot thanks to what numerous active points of foot on which the reflexotherapy is based presently are massed.

Difficult coordination of movements forces to distract from everyday problems and to plunge into the world of dance. Once you remember something foreign, will lose a rhythm and will spoil everything. Therefore during occupations the limit lucidity of mind remains, the soul as if has a rest. Or, as it is told in the ancient dancing treatise:“ Where there is a hand, there is an eye; where there is an eye, there is a reason; where there is a reason, there is heart and where heart - there essence of life“.

Therefore in the new hobby for myself I see the mass of pluses. In youth I tried different types of fitness: shaping, a step - aerobics, even bodybuilding. Something was pleasant to me, something - is not present, but, having for the first time taken dancing classes (Indian and belly dance), I understood: “And this is valid mine!“.
