Description

Class Experience

Students will learn basic capoeira theory & fundamental moves.  They will understand the concept of a roda and how to play inside one.  In addition to learning the physical aspects of the game, they'll also learn a few Portuguese words.
I lived in Bahia, Brasil for 5 years and speak Brazilian Portuguese semi-fluently.  I studied Capoeira with the group Filhos de Zumbi in Itacaré and received my first cord in 2012. 

I am a 600 hr Registered Yoga Teacher with certification in Yoga for Children & Teens. 
Students will be asked to practice at home, what they've learned in class but they will not be tested or graded. 
Students are asked to wear clothing comfortable to move in. For example joggers, leggings, and t-shirts, etc. Ideally, nothing too baggy as it will be difficult to see the motions. T-shirts should be fitted or tucked into pants to avoid shirt coming up during inversions. NO DRESSES OR SKIRTS. Please keep an easy access water bottle nearby during class. Please have open space approximately 6 X 8 ft on the floor for the learners to move around freely. I recommend a carpeted area, yoga mat, or gymnastics mats.
25 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
We regularly practice balancing and acrobatic exercises.  Please have open space approximately 6 X 8 ft on the floor for the learners to move around freely.  
I recommend a carpeted area, yoga mat, or gymnastics mats. 

*I remind students in class that these moves should only be used when practicing capoeira.  Capoeira should not be used to harm another person.  

Capoeira is a martial art developed during the period of slavery in Brazil.  Its roots, music, movement, and theories are based on the African and Afro-Brazilian experiences during these times.  I'm not an expert in this history so I don't go into the topics in-depth but I do briefly discuss them throughout lessons.  I mainly highlight capoeira's origins and the reason why martial art is disguised with dance and music.  
A few of the facts that I share in regards to the history and significance of Capoeira are pulled from the following article.
