It’s high energy, aerobic, and downright fun.

More people are turning to belly dancing as an entertaining way to get fit.

Jennifer Sobel, a professional belly dance instructor and creator of The Belly Dance Solution, joins Gayle Guyardo on Bloom to talk about the unexpected benefits that come from belly dancing.

Sobel told Guyardo “belly dancing also offers various mental and emotional benefits such as boosting your confidence, helping women feel more feminine, and being a fun way to relieve stress.”

Bloom airs in 40 markets across the country, with a reach of approximately 36 million households, and in Puerto Rico, U.S. Virgin Islands and Madison, WI.

You can watch Bloom in the Tampa Bay Market weekdays at Noon on WTTA: Spectrum 1006; Frontier 514; DirecTV 38; Dish 38; Comcast 43, and look for Bloom early mornings on WFLA News Channel 8.
