There are many changes in the body of post-menopausal women. One of them is the serious problem of weight gain. Due to many metabolic changes, there is a possibility of increasing fat in the body. All these changes coming in the body together can increase heart-related problems. After post-menopause, women are often less active and gradually this affects their self-confidence.

A recent new study shows that if you dance three times a week, there can be many positive changes in the body.

What was the purpose of dancing to improve fitness post-menopause?

The purpose of this study was to see how dance affects post-menopausal women's fitness, self-image, and self-esteem.

This is how women can take care of themselves during menopause

This study was done on 36 women who had gone through menopause. The average age of these women was 57 years and they danced three times a week for 90 minutes every day. Before and after 16 weeks, the dance was seen to affect their body composition, blood lipids, fitness, self-image, and self-confidence. 

What was the conclusion for dancing in post-menopausal women?

This study has been published in the magazine 'Menopause' of The North American Menopause Society (NAMS). The 16-week study found that dance was not only effective in improving postmenopausal women's lipid profile and fitness, but it also improved their self-image and self-confidence.

What are the benefits of dance?

Dance is not just an art, it is a way to keep oneself fit and that too without getting bored. Just like jogging is done to stay fit, similarly, dance also makes your fitness journey easy. Let us tell you about some of the benefits of dance.

Full body workout

Dance brings flexibility to all parts of the body. Dance done on the dance floor for less than 5 minutes burns 30 calories of the body. By strengthening the muscles, BP and sugar are also fine.

No boredom

If you go jogging, then many times you start getting bored while going through the same paths or running at the same pace. But every day you learn something new in dance. Even you have many options to choose the dance form according to your choice and age.
