Bellydance tips for Hypermobility with Alyssum & Ranya

Learn tips for working with joint hypermobility - as a dancer or as a dance teacher - from two dancers who know joint hypermobility from deep personal experience! Many belly dancers have natural hypermobility (which is often an inherited condition). It's important to "contain it" for clear, strong technique and, especially, for safety. You can dance more safely and minimize the risk of injury or discomfort by listening to your own body (#1!) and applying greater consciousness to how movements affect your joints. I enjoyed filming this short, powerful class with Alyssum Pohl in her home.


Alyssum Pohl is an authenticity coach, sea-kayaker, dance instructor/performer, conservationist, explorer, speaker, artist, and a curious and mindful human. She has danced all her life, and has extensive scientific, policy, and creative training. Alyssum holds a B.S. in biology from the University of Kentucky, an M.A. in International Environmental Policy from the Monterey Institute of International Studies, and spent several years in veterinary school. In 2015, she embarked on a self-directed expedition, Paddle On, in which she solo kayaked the Mississippi River from source to sea, documenting plastic waste and water quality. She is now working on a memoir of her many adventures.
