For 35 -year old Cherie H., the physical benefits of taking classes with Zaphara extend far beyond achieving her fitness goals. Cherie was diagnosed with structural alignment issues and signed up for bellydancing on a whim.

She saw benefits in the way of decreased pain after her first session, and has since found that bellydancing delivers and excellent core workout.  "After eight weeks of dance classes, I got results that six months of physical therapy could not produce in terms of feeling really good and pain free".
Seattle Woman Magazine May 08 (writer Ashley Griffin)
