Jazzercise is arguably the most fun dance to do in aerobics. This dance pretty much works on anyone who wants to try and it packs a lot of benefits too. It helps reduce various heart diseases, it works out all the muscles of the body and most importantly it makes you happy!

Yoga

Find your inner core by practising your whole body through Yoga. This ancient Indian technique is an exercise for the mind and body as it helps improve your physical and mental health. 

Yoga combines proper breathing techniques with movement and meditation. It also helps promote flexibility, calmness, endurance and strength through its different poses and breathing techniques. Here are some of the most basic yoga poses and their benefits:

Mountain pose

The mountain pose is your foundation or so-called blueprint for other poses. If you’re not able to do this properly, you won’t be able to do the other basic and more complicated poses. This form might look like you’re just standing up but what it does is that it helps you find your balance and puts you in the moment.

Chair pose

After you have mastered the mountain pose, you can then move on to the chair pose. Once you feel the burning sensations in your muscles that means it’s starting to work. This form helps you strengthen your upper back, shoulders and legs.

Down Dog on a chair

For this pose, you need to bring in a chair for you to lean forward on. To successfully execute the Down Dog on a chair pose, you would have to need a firm balance so you can successfully place your hands back of the chair while creating a 90-degree angle with your body. 

Downward-facing dog

Just as the name suggests, this pose has you going down on all fours with your hips backed up and your hands forward until you form a triangular shape with your body. It may not seem like it but this pose gives you a sense of calmness because of the placement of your head below your heart.

Warrior II 

The warrior II pose may be a huge step up from the basic poses but it’s worth executing. As you start to last minutes in this pose, it helps you increase your stamina. It also strengthens your legs and ankles while offering a calming feeling to the mind. 

Yoga is one of the best and natural ways to relieve stress and anxiety. But aside from that, here are some of the best benefits that come with it:

  • Improves heart health
  • Helps fight depression
  • Promotes better well being
  • Relieves back pain
  • Promotes better sleep
  • Improves balance
  • Provides better energy

Zumba

Dance your health problems away through the various dances of Zumba! This fitness activity incorporates Latin and international music into different forms of dance. It’s a good way to improve cardiovascular health as it is divided into routines and intervals.

Zumba promotes fun with its exercises which makes it easier and more accessible for people, especially the elderly, to engage in it. Some of the dances in this activity include:

Chacha

Chacha is a Cuban dance that is a slowed-down version of Mambo. It is accompanied by Latin music and its steps contain elements such as personality, rhythm, character and charm. 

People of all ages are welcome to enjoy chacha and its several benefits. It serves as a great cardio workout as well as a social experience as it lets people mingle and dance with each other. 

Samba

One of the best choices for a fun and calorie-burning dance is Samba. This is considered one of the most high-spirited types of dance because of its enthusiastic steps that are commonly associated with colourful and vibrant clothing. 

Because of its lively nature introduced by Brazil, Samba will greatly improve your energy levels as well as your stamina and heart health.

Merengue

Another dance originating in Latin, the Merengue provides different benefits for the whole body. The dance’s pacing which switches between quick and slow movements allows your heart to get the cardio exercise that it needs.

Although the steps used in Merengue are relatively small, it is a massive calorie burner when it is done for extended periods. Elderly people can also enjoy the benefit of relieving joint and muscle pain.

Hip-hop

Hip-hop dances are an all-time favourite for kids because of the cool and hip movements that it has to offer. One of the best things that it does for kids is that it helps them develop confidence at a young age.

Although it’s a favourite among the younger audience, people of all ages are still welcome to enjoy this dance. Other benefits of it include increased flexibility, body coordination and muscle development. 

Bhangra

Also known as the harvest dance, Bhangra is another Indian cultural dance that became an aerobics workout. Throughout the years, this dance saw a lot of evolution by incorporating some other styles such as hip-hop and techno, but the benefits that it gives stayed the same.

This aerobic workout greatly aids in weight loss and in preventing various heart-related diseases such as stroke and heart attack. 

The great thing about these dances is that it feels like you’re at a party rather than working out which makes you enjoy the routine and forget that you’re exercising. It also helps people to alleviate stress and anxiety because their mind will tend to be focused on the music being played and the dance steps rather than their problems. 

Other than the common benefits of aerobic exercises, some of the health benefits of engaging in Zumba include improved heart health, better mental health and overall improved body coordination.
