reflexes, balance, coordination and increasing strength and flexibility as they learn.

This class will cover all aspects of Capoeira ranging from basic moves to more complex movements and sequences as well as a better understanding of Capoeira as a whole (history, music, game, etc…). These classes are usually longer and more physically and mentally demanding. This class is suited for students from intermediate to advanced instructors and top professionals of Capoeira.
What should I expect in my first class?
Please come to class expecting to be challenged both physically and mentally. Capoeira
class consists of a medium intensity warm up, followed by stretches to improve
flexibility and, lastly, focus on basic to advanced Capoeira movements and kicks.
You will sweat. You will ache. You will want to stop. Just like starting any new activity,
the more you train, the faster your body will adapt.
What to bring to class:
Comfortable exercise shirt and pants (preferably white)
A water bottle
An open mind
A complete lack of self-doubt helps, but can be earned if not previously acquired.
If you try Capoeira it will likely be one of the most rewarding challenges you will ever
undertake. Your body will become stronger, your mind sharper. You will develop self-
confidence, better balance, improved flexibility, and lasting friendships after just a few
