This was one of my favorite Airbnb experiences ever! I learned so much from Luciano but his passion and love for this art form blew me away. He has been practicing Capoeira for over 30 years and is a master. It was an honor to learn from him. He is friendly, kind, energetic, and very patient. I’ve always wanted to try Capoeira, and this was an incredible introduction. I would recommend this to everyone!!!

The capoeira workshop with Luciano was great! Me and my friend were joined by some really nice people who were very experienced in capoeira. We felt really welcome and we learned a lot! It was more of a workout than we expected, but in a good way :)

That was such a great experience. Luciano is passionnated and full of joy and life. We learn the basis of the Capoeira and it is quite interesting. Luciano gives you the will to progress and enjoy life. He played music with us and prepared a lot of exercises that he adapted to each of us. Thanks you so much ! Thanks you for your energy ! I would totally recommend.

The workout was quite intense and requires some endurance but because of the positive vibes I got from the host and all other participants/students it gave me energy to keep going. Luciano is a good teacher with great knowledge and passion for this sport. Afterwards went for a bite all together which was nice and made new friends. Happy I went!

Luciano is a special human being who, being not only masterful is his arts, is truly a loving being. Anyone would be blessed to know him

세상 즐거운 카포에이라 클래스였어요! 운동 많이 될거라고 경고하긴 했는데 진짜 장난없었네요. 옆돌기하고 브릿지하고 이전에 아크로바틱 배우지 않았으면 조금 따라가기 힘들었을 것 같아요. 어느정도 운동을 좋아하시고 즐기시는 분이 이 트립에 참여하시는 것을 권장드려요. 그냥 운동하는 클래스가 아니라 함께 카포에이라에 사용되는 음악을 듣기도, 연주해보기도 하고, 노래를 불러보기도 하고, 다양한 방식으로 카포에이라를 체험할 수 있어서 좋았습니다. 새로운 친구들도 만나서 같이 카포에이라 하면서 그 순간만큼은 진짜 제가 그들의 일부인것처럼 느껴져서 좋았어요 :)
