The stomach dance
Belly dancing conjures up images of sultry women dressed in brightly-coloured trousers shaking their hips to high-pitched Arabian music but behind the corny stereotype there is a serious workout.
Ozgen shows me how to use my stomach muscles to create a controlled rolling wave-like motion. Standing sideways in the mirror, I push my stomach out to create the silhouette of a pregnant woman. I quickly suck it back in again using the upper part of my abdomen.
