What you'll do

On arrival take a moment to watch the sunrise, hear the sounds of the ocean and savour the moment. The class will start off with a basic warm up, with floor based movements introducing our bodies to capoeira and dynamic movement. Once warm we start working on movement technique and basic sequences. The movements include: The Basic stance Attacks & Defence Basic Acrobatics Bodily expression This session & experience won't teach you everything about Capoeira, but you will learn a lot about yourself and the hidden abilities you have. Capoeira movements require you to use your body in different ways and trust yourself, as well as trust that you are capable achieving the unexpected. Questions are encouraged, don't feel shy to ask for more demonstrations, or clarity about movements & sequences. There will be lots of opportunities to take pictures & videos, while learning the movements. Let me know if you want me to take some pics while doing a handstand or backbend ;) Once the movements are done we'll play some music, focusing on rhythm with instruments a while learning a few songs. The game of capoeira is done in partners while the music played to lead the tempo and style of game. After the training, we'll jump in the sea to cool off, afterwards we'll grab a coffee/tea/water to chat and finish off the experience.

Where you'll be

We will be practicing Capoeira on the beach front promenade, on grassy areas near Bike and Bean cafe (where we will have coffees after the session ). The sessions will take place early morning or after work, to avoid the heat of the day and get the best views of the beach and surrounding areas. If the conditions are ideal we can make use of the beach to practice, playing capoeira next to the water is always incredible
