What is Capoeira? Capoeira is a martial art, developed in Brazil by African slaves more than 400 years ago. It is an all-encompassing art, blending blending music, dance, singing, acrobatics, play, and self defense. All these come together into a unique, cohesive whole. Capoeira is the most physical of all the arts.

As a form of exercise, Capoeira engages all muscles groups, helps develop flexibility, balance, coordination, and endurance, and offers significant toning and cardiovascular benefits. Accessible to persons of any age and body type, Capoeira is much more than a martial art: It engages practitioners on a social level as well, placing them in touch with a living tradition and a rich historic heritage.

The Capoeira Workout Created by Paula Verdino, aka Instrutora Pimentinha, is an open-level program, including both a step-by-step breakdown of many classic capoeira moves and a full set of non-stop high-energy workout sequences. The workout sections progress from isolated movements with transitional steps in between to graceful dance-like combinations. The program also includes Capoeira solo performance by Paula and Capoeira game demonstrations by Paula and her assistants, Lara Silva and Marie Viggiano.

The Music: The rhythm of the capoeira game is determined by specific musical instruments and songs. All the music heard in The Capoeira Workout comes from the original capoeira musical recordings of Mestre Bimba (Manoel dos Reis Machado), as heard in his famous release, Mestre Bimba e a Voz do Berimbau, licensed via the Fundação Mestre Bimba, Salvador, Brasil.

Great workout This is a great workout and you don’t have to be a full martial art person to enjoy the benefit of this exercise. It’s simple enough and works in all parts of the muscles. Through practise you get the hang of it. It’s also educational in music and culture. I like that they have someone slower and bigger to state, size and speed doesn’t matter. It’s a great cardio. and enough to build strenght and flexibility. I recommend for anyone who wants to just workout for short duration at home and not…
