WHAT MAKES CAPOEIRA DIFFERENT
Capoeira is fast and versatile keeping the participants in constant motion leading to great full-body workout.
This style combines elements of traditional martial arts with dance to improve agility like nothing else.
The benefit of improved flexibility and balance from practicing Capoeira is on par with those from yoga.
CAPOEIRA IS FOR ANYONE
Capoeira is for those who are looking for an exciting new group fitness class.
Capoeira is an Afro-Brazilian martial art comprised of dance, fight, theatrics, acrobatics, music, history, and culture. You will have the chance to learn both physical art as well as the Brazilian rhythms and songs in Portuguese.
Build Confidence Through Self-Expression
There is a rhythmic dance element to the movements and practice of capoeira that allow this martial art to transform into an art form all it's own. Build your confidence and your skill as you explore the world of capoeira and learn to express yourself through your movement.
PHYSICAL BENEFITS OF CAPOEIRA
Capoeira is a marvelous exercise for the body, involving all of the muscle groups and developing a series of physical qualities.
While playing in the roda one rapidly notices a great change: less tension, faster reflexes and increased power. Training in Capoeira has many health benefits. These benefits, which far outweigh how tough the training can look to a beginner, will help motivate you to give Capoeira a try.
Underlying Fitness and Health Benefits
Let's face it. We all spend way too much time at a desk and staring at a computer screen. There's not a single one of us who couldn't benefit from moving more.
Capoeira is an awesome way to increase your level of fitness, while having fun and developing new skills!
See for yourself the many health benefits Capoeira has to offer ...
- Improves muscle strength and aerobic capacity
- Relieves stress and anxiety
- Tones muscles in the arms, legs, and core
- Strengthens the immune system, lowers blood pressure, and enhances sleep quality
STRENGTH, CARDIO & STAMINA
Capoeiristas are always moving around on their hands in handstands, rolls, poses, etc. that can make a drastic improvement on upper body strength. They also perform many jumping kicks and movements that definitely improve leg strength.
Many times athletes from various sports are surprised when they feel winded from a capoeira workout. This is because capoeira uses muscle groups and cardio fitness in unique ways. Intense capoeira games can require enormous amounts of energy. This, combined with constant repetition of movements and techniques, makes capoeira a valuable cardio exercise.
Some capoeiristas are on par with serious yoga practitioners in terms of their flexibility. But even those who moderately improve their flexibility lower their risk for injury and increase their everyday mobility.
Even with some of the basic moves, you will begin to notice how the muscles in your body work together to produce fluid movement. You will also feel them working in ways you are not used to. Soon you will build strength all over, and tone up.
