Dr. Bella reviews for Ritambhara Sahni

An author once said, “When you catch a glimpse of your potential, that’s when a passion is born.” And from early on I knew that I had the potential to follow my parent’s footsteps towards becoming a doctor. I single-mindedly worked my way towards becoming a gynaecologist to assist my family in the two nursing homes we owned. As a practicing gynaecologist for the past 15 years, I love what I do and it’s so gratifying to see families celebrate the birth of their child. The Chinese have a nice saying which reads, there’s only one most beautiful child in the world, and every mother has it. Well, I get to see the adoring mothers look ecstatic with a life I helped bring into the world. But as much as there’s a wonderful side to my profession, it is also counterbalanced with the agonies of illnesses that could be fatal. And every time there’s a life we couldn’t help save, families are torn in distraught which does take a toll on the doctors mind. There are some incidents that can’t be left behind at work, so it follows you home and becomes a part of your family saga, even though uninvited.  My husband and I have devoted our lives to performing chest compressions or birthing a baby with our every waking hour committed to emergencies and working for days on a stretch.
Ever since my childhood years I’ve always had an inclination towards music and dance, so  quenched the desire by learning salsa for a while but I didn’t favour the male dependency.  I’ve exercised in a gym for 14 years now with a brief stint in yoga. The team of doctors and nurses working in my nursing home had already gotten used to the fact that I loved to perform deliveries while listening to music and danced for fun but they didn’t see what was coming next. I startled quite a few when I enthusiastically announced that I soon would start classes in belly dancing! And why not? I sincerely believe a lot of medical professionals need to have a hobby where they can let their hair down and forget the ordeals of work, even if it is for a while.  So after a quick research, I soon found myself contacting Ritambhara Sahni’s belly dance Institute Mumbai for belly dancing and couldn’t wait to be a student of belly dance.
My first day in the studio left me feeling invigorated already. The place was bursting with a young carefree energy filled with humour and laughter. This was a place I seemed to best fit in and was in a haven of rest after a strenuous week. I was delighted to enter a studio that was resonant with the jingling of the dancers belts interspersed with the joyous chirps of the student circle. It felt good to be a student once again after being involved in the intricate web of responsibilities and authorities. So even if I have to be at my nursing home on a Sunday morning, I make it a point to not miss a single dance class. Personally because it is not only for the cardiovascular endurance an art like belly dance supplements, but mostly because I find the subtle movements in tune with the upbeat music therapeutic. This seemed a great way to lose your inhibition of body fat and made you feel beautiful and confident. Belly dancing made me feel distressed and disconnected from the labour wards and hospitals I managed. Here was a place where I could positively vent the stresses of my profession instead of carrying a baggage home that could otherwise test the family fabric. In Ritambhara Sahni’s Belly dance institute Mumbai I felt refreshed and rejuvenated before the commencement of another perspective week. So, needless to say, after belly dancing in the beginner’s level I joined my young friends to the next batch of levels 4, 5, 6. Ritambhara Sahni is a model teacher whose energy is never on the decline. With laughter in her eyes she is the institutes centrifuge and makes learning so much fun. As a practicing doctor, I’m in a profession that never sleeps. I work round the clock and go home to a family that has adjusted to the phone calls that never ceases. And somewhere down the line in the recent months, dance has helped me to come in tune with myself and strike a fine balance with the work load. Ritambhara Sahni’s belly dance institute Mumbai for belly dancing has impacted my life with their commitment to the art and hence through the techniques I’ve familiarized myself more with my body. Belly dance with its vigorous movements boosts emotions and uplifts moods while synchronizing the mind and body in a harmonious union. For all of this I will be grateful to Ritambhara Sahni and her group of girls at Belly Dance Institute Mumbai.

Ritambhara Sahni’s, The Belly Dance Institute, Mumbai is a great place to gain a perspective on belly dancing. Ritambhara and her team offer a great experience into the world of belly dancing.

If you are looking for a workout, belly dance is a great way to stay fit. The first portion of the class is stretching and toning exercises. Beginner classes focus more on getting the basic movement techniques right and how to flow with the music. Advanced classes are longer and include more choreography.

I started at Ritambhara Sahni’s, The Belly Dance Institute, Mumbai with totally no dance experience. After just one month of Ritambhara Level 1 class, I learned a simple choreography and performed it at a wedding party; my friends and family were amazed of what I have accomplished in a month. Thanks Ritambhara Ma’am.

The teaching at The Belly Dance Institute, Mumbai is top-notch and professional. Ritambhara Sahni makes everyone feel welcome regardless of experience, talent, fitness level or even body size. She breaks down the dance steps so simply that I have never felt out of place or discouraged as she is very persistent and makes me do all the steps till I learn them properly. In every class, you not only learn new steps and movements, but you also learn how to move your fingers properly according to your hip movements.

For the first time I was trying the Belly Dancing class. My experience was great. Ritambhara Sahni is a great mentor and dancer. Not only she patiently showed us the dance moves but she also explained the logic behind them. Hopefully I would dance better and better with every session.

Hina Ranka

I decided to try my first ever belly dancing class at The Belly Dance Institute, Mumbai. Being a curvier girl, I had some worries about being uncomfortable in a dance studio (as well as it being my first time trying belly dancing). The receptionist working at the front desk was very polite and welcoming. I took beginner belly dancing classes, the first time I had a hard time picking up the movements, but the second time I went it was way better. Ritambhara would teach moves in really simple and easy to learn way which made us feel at ease. She was welcoming and very nice.
