Capoeira for Beginners

  • Ambrosia Elixirs 109 Troutman Street Brooklyn United States (map)

Mare is a practitioner of capoeira since 2011 with Mestre Ombrinho at Capoeira Angola Quintal. Capoeira is a mindful martial art and self defense disguised as a dance that was created by the enslaved African people in Brazil as a way to seek liberation from the European oppressors and was practiced as a hidden, playful game to fool the slave owners. It is a mix of dance, self-defense, acrobatics, and music. It helps one find physical, emotional and spiritual balance. The style I learn to play and teach is "Mindful Capoeira" and it is using intelligence over speed and force, emphasizing cooperation over competition, celebrating freedom, building community and more.

Cost:: 8 classes of capoeira for $96 ($12 per class)
