Lunar Bellyfit Flow
Why the moon is so important for women?
The physical, emotional and mental energy of women is intimately connected with their menstrual cycle, while the cycles are governed by the moon. Every month the moon goes through a cycle starting on a dark new moon, growing (waxing), reaching complete radiance on full moon and descending again into the darkness (waning). The same cycles are experienced by every woman in her fertile years where her menstruation corresponds to the dark moon phase, her preovulation - the growing phase, her ovulation - the fool moon, and the premenstrum - the waning phase.
In the old times before we start living in the cities and have artificial light, the moon was the light to guide women in their menstrual cycles. Many women menstruated on the dark new moon and then ovulated on the full moon. In these times women were also much more connected and synchronized with each other. In some cultures, the red tents were created, where women would gather during their bleed time and rest, sing, dance and nourish their bodies and souls. Men knew how important that ritual was for the women and not only allowed them to do that but even took care of the domestic obligations instead of them.
Nowadays these ancient rituals are forgotten in the modern world and women experience more and more stress, anxiety, hormonal imbalances, heavy PMS, and deep confusion on how to live life and move in a feminine way. The individualistic culture we have created, gives little opportunities for real life authentic connection between women as well as with nature and the natural cycles.
What is Lunar Bellyfit Flow?
The Lunar Bellyfit Flow Program aims at restoring the connection first with our own bodies, then with each other and last but not least with the Mother Nature and the power of the Moon. Each phase has a specific routine honoring the unique energies expressed during this phase.
The Lunar Bellyfit Flow is based on a system developed by women for women and is an exquisite blend between Yoga, Belly dance moves, Vinyasa Flow moves, Mudras (Yogic Hand Gestures), Affirmations and Relaxation infused with focused intentions. It is a nourishing movement ritual for the feminine body, mind and soul.

“I used to run a lot until I realized what I was running from. Now I don’t feel the need to run so much and was looking for something else. Bellyfit has it all. The fitness my body needs and also the sensual expression I need to feel my energies. It’s great and I do recommend it highly to every woman.”
– Sarah G. Pedersen (Denmark)

“I have never tried anything like Bellyfit before. It combines different dances from different cultures in a fun way that while doing it, you become aware of different parts of your body and you get a great workout with lots of sweating. Love the way Diana inspires and motivates during the class. I am usually a person Who gives up too fast. But with Bellyfit and a coach like Diana, I never miss my classes.”
– Parwana M. Amini (Afghanistan)
“Being a Yoga instructor myself and trying many different exercise forms like dancing, hiking,etc. I have never managed to sweat as much as during a Bellyfit class with Diana. I’ve never thought it is possible for me to have the sweat flowing and still have so much fun. At the same time it activates the chakras and we get to explore tremendous power hidden in the deeper layers of the body. After a practice with Diana I dont feel tired. I am refreshed and full of joy! She is awesome!”
– Jenny Tsou (Taiwan)
“First when I went to the Bellyfit class, I could notice that it was somewhat very familiar to me and it became very addictive. I knew it was the right format for me. Bellyfit with Diana woke me up for the real pleasure that I’m a woman and I can dance. I appreciate her that she could make the class enjoyable, graceful and passionate. I found out myself euphoric during the class the same way I feel when I am in the mountain.”
