12 - Merci Ladies Club
"Do you still remember that famous image of Marilyn Monroe, sticking up her bottom? Lately, I have been wearing high-heeled shoes and have been doing the same exercises she did with a colored ball, an umbrella, shoes and a cushion. But after a week practice, my back aches! Hopefully, it will produce the desirable effect soon," a friend complained.

This form of exercise is called "body shaping," and originated in Russia in the early 1990's. It helps women look energetic, healthy, and graceful. Body shaping tones muscles and works to increase flexibility in the joints, reducing potential injuries. It also lays emphasis on teaching women to have a sexy and elegant carriage, graceful movements, and refined facial expression. Body shaping is quickly coming into vogue in Shanghai.

At present, there are several clubs in Shanghai which teach this form of exercise. Among them, the Merci Ladies Club is worth recommending.

Call 6418-7016 if you're interested.
