Yoga and martial arts are connected in many ways, and there are many benefits to practicing and incorporating elements of martial arts into a yoga practice. Capoeira is an Afro-Brazilian martial art that was brought to Brazil by the African people who were placed into slavery. In order to fool their masters, the martial art was disguised with fluid dance-like movements and rich percussive music. Capoeira is an excellent complement to a yoga practice as it aids in creating both strong and flexible bodies, fluid movements, and strong inversion capabilities.

Our workshop will include:

  • - Introduction to Capoeira
  • - Strength, flexibility, stamina, and energetic flow practice
  • - Creative inversion sequences
  • - Learn to incorporate basic martial arts movements in a way that compliments a Vinyasa practic
  • - Live music

Open to intermediate level students[intermediate, asana, discussion, lecture]
