Capoeira: Feel the Spirit Within

WONDER GARDEN

Rooted in the passion for freedom, the art of Capoeira took flight many centuries ago in the grassy fields of Brazil. The class begins with a series of stretches and an introduction to basic Capoeira movements, as Joao talks you through the art's legendary history of combat, acrobatics, music and ritualistic dance. Following this, he will initiate you into Capoeira's sacred tradition of 'The Roda.' Portuguese for circle, this is where the gracefully strategic physical dialogue happens; the Roda is where training manifests into games between Capoeiristas. Discover the contagious energy of Capoeira with João. Feel the Spirit from within. Come with an open mind, dressed in comfortable fitness gear, bring a positive spirit and prepare to let the good vibes roll.
