(This has been cross poseted for max-replies. The movement im wanting to learn is either yoga related or bellydance related.)

vids.myspace.com . . .

Watch the whole thing, in the middle she does a light back bend, then....drops to the floor in one movement. Its so beautiful.

Im not a belly dancer or even a tribal belly dancer but it seems her and I have very similar dancing styles (vey similar, so much in fact someone thought that was me)

I want to learn how to drop my body to the floor like that in one simple movement like she does.

Can anyone help me out like, tell me the name of the movement, how its done and what i can do to work on it?

Thanks so much!

Looks to me like her body stays going downwards/back and she drops her legs forward under her. I think it would take great muscular control in legs and some great core stability, so the stomach could maintain the bodies position.

But i'm no expert at all. Just me observing! i'll be interested to see what people reply.

Wow. That vid was wicked! I don't know much about the move itself, but I would say it would take some strong quads!

Have you attempted it at all?

Looks like a hinge drop to me.

I wish the video didn't cut to different angles so much. I would have liked to actually watch what she was doing, but it made it so hard!!

But that movement...it looks like a TON of leg muscle control and ab muscle control.
