Benefits of bhangra

Hi there and welcome back to my blog, how are you? I hope that you are well. Today, I’m going to talk about the benefits of bhangra and my experience with bhangra blaze, the class that I go to.

The first time that I went to bhangra blaze class, I was told to fill in a medical form stating what tablets I’m taking and a brief review of my medical history. After that we start the class with a warm up and stretches. After that Amarjit, the teacher will start the class.

The class runs like this, Amarjit will take a whole routine and chop it into little pieces. Then at the end of the class, she will go through the whole routine a couple of times. After that ts a cool down and stretches. We do take water breaks several times through out the session.

Sometimes, the routines have a shout or chant “hoy”. The first time that I went, Kirit Thakore, the founder of Bhangra Blaze, who kept on telling us “if you want to burn 1000 calories, you better scream out “hoy”.

Now I’m going to talk about the benefits of bhangra/dancing

  • It gave me the confidence to go and dance
  • Easily burn 300 calories
  • It’s fun

It gave me the confidence to go and dance

Late last year, me and my whole family went out to a “Look good feel better” Bollywood night fundraising event. My sister said to me, “are you going to dance tonight? And without a doubt, I said yes I would. And did go out and danced the night away! Amarjit was there as well performing and dancing on the floor.

Easily burn off 300 calories

As someone who is trying consistently to lose weight, burning so many calories is a short amount of time is essential to me.I know that Kirit said you can burn 1000 calories, but with my fatigue and hand eye coordination, 300 – 350 calories is the most that I’ve ever burned.

It’s fun

As I’ve said in an earlier blog post, if its not fun, it’s not worth doing. That’s why I like going to bhangra blaze. It’s a fun way to burn off over 300 calories.

I would like to thank Kanika, Shirley and everyone at Carers Trust for giving me the confidence to share my story and I would like to thank Joe for motivating me to get back on the horse.
