Bootyful® was created by personal trainer, Ana Mazuran She has a dance and fitness degree and 15 years of teaching experience.
Among the great variety of dance styles she did, she discovered African based dances and fell in love.
After training in West African dance in Belgium and Senegal, and Dancehall in Jamaica, Ana did her dissertation project on ‘Exploring the context of African dance and investigation into specific pelvic movements’ where she analysed the biomechanics and dynamics of the movements.
Her teaching experience includes UK and international presentations (Europe and America).
Sedentary lifestyles affect posture and health in general and the pelvic region too, which is very important for women, and that was the inspiration for creating a fitness programme that strengthens muscles and increases blood flow in the pelvic area.
As well as the general public, the programme provides conditioning for dancers to prevent any injuries and to improve their performance in the areas of stamina and hip movement accuracy.
Kizomba, zouk, latin dances, dancehall, commercial or traditional African dance lovers will benefit from this conditioning programme!
Bootyful® is more than just a structured dance fitness class put into routines, it’s a completely unique conditioning class that focuses on a specific body area and posture, defines authentic programme moves and techniques, and it is the first dance fitness programme ever that includes pelvic floor exercises!
