Health Benefits Of Latin Dance Classes

Physicians recommend that both adults and children receive at least 150 minutes of physical exercise every week. Why spend this time in boring activities when you could spend it doing something you really enjoy? Taking Latin dance classes is one way to learn new moves that will also increase your heart rate.
The movements
Salsa or Latin style dancing involves three different weight changes or steps, performed to each four-beat measure. Even if a step does not occur, you might kick or tap to the beat. Various interchanges might involve slight modifications from standard steps, depending on specific instructors. Dancers will need to maintain strong upper bodies to perform the steps correctly. Hips often move energetically to perform the steps, while arms remain in an open position. Steps involve turning, twirling, and moving in unison with a partner across the floor. When dancing solo, arms won’t move as much as when working with a partner.

Eating Leafy Greens

Eating Leafy Greens

Eating Leafy Greens – What are leafy greens anyways? Sounds like a nice word for something clearly leafy and healthy, but are we talking about exactly? Many think spinach, some think lettuce. Both are correct, but it’s more than that. Leafy greens typically entail those greens that are dark green and leafy, which does include spinach and lettuce but also kale, chard, and collard greens.

It does seem that such a small, flat arrangement of cellulose could not possibly hold much in the way of nutrition, but strangely they pack a powerful nutrient punch. First of all they are great sources of folate. This is great for women of reproductive age but helpful for all of us in forming red and white blood cells as well as producing DNA and RNA. Folate also helps us utilize carbohydrates as energy.
