Add Stamina and Muscle Mass with Dancing to Upbeat Music

Music and dance research has opened up different points of view on the health benefits that physical exercise, such as dancing, can lead to when practiced.

One of the biggest topics that we cover is music. Some readers might consider music coverage ‘fluff’ or ‘infotainment.’ I find that music is a vital part to living a healthy and happy life.

Dance and physical exercise are ways to keep your body in tune, flexible and adaptable. It is important to balance and treat our minds, body and spirit.

NPR’s social science correspondent Shankar Vedantam goes over some of the benefits connected to pain reduction.

Music and dance research has opened up different points of view on the health benefits that physical exercise, such as dancing, can lead to when practiced.

The New York Times reported:

‘A new study that compared the neurological effects of country dancing with those of walking and other activities suggests that there may be something unique about learning a social dance. The demands it places on the mind and body could make it unusually potent at slowing some of the changes inside our skulls that seem otherwise inevitable with aging.

Neuroscientists and those in middle age or beyond know that brains alter and slow as we grow older. Processing speed, which is a measure of how rapidly our brains can absorb, assess and respond to new information, seems to be particularly hard hit.’

In the two videos below, one of them goes over a wide look at the health benefits from music and dance via TED Talks. The other video provides a slow, gentle shamanic form of tantra love music. Ideal as a spiritual soundbath, yoga or deep tantric love experience music.
