About Sinhá Capoeira

We believe that Capoeira is a platform of freedom and expression.  Therefore we always try to evolve Capoeira in its plenitude.  Also without focusing our work in radically changing our own style and having Capoeira Regional as our main reference, we are constantly trying to keep up with its daily evolution.

We train Capoeira as a social form to keep its valuable culture of Brazil and expressive image strongly present.   We focus on learning the martial art, music, acrobatics, artistic aspects just like those who practice Capoeira around the  world.

Capoeira is not just known for being a healthy activity or a form of physical exercise, but also for teaching and having a mental and spiritual benefit; being that Capoeira teaches its students the elements needed for one search his or hers own freedom, and if allowed by the students over its body and soul.

We base our work in the deep mentality of ‘Preservation’ while seeking a vision of one day being like Capoeira, without illusion, with our pleasures and obstacles that are to overcome; we search for a physical and mental evolution.

About Our Capoeira Classes In Boston

Capoeira is an explosive high intensity workout, where you will learn to move with power and grace, have fun, and get into amazing shape fast. This unique class is designed to work the entire body; consisting of strength moves that emphasizes coordination, balance, and flexibility.   It is a high endurance workout with intervals of various intensities that will challenge you.  Capoeira is sometimes referred to as “Flashdance” workout as it will not only get you “fighting fit” but you will have a great time doing it.

Classes are based on traditional sequences and modern progression, which we practice while listening to traditional, sensational, and energetic Capoeira music (featuring berimbau, atabaque and pandeiro).  Each class begins with movement games to warm-up, where specific exercises prepare one for training.  During class there is partner and line-work, where the moves flow from one position to another and also where techniques are developed.  We finish class with traditional ‘Capoeira roda’, displaying intuitive movements, building confidence and practice playing Capoeira music.

Capoeira with Mestre Chuvisquinho is fun, truly a physical challenge and an effective fitness class experience.  This unique class combines the Brazilian art of Capoeira with fitness science to deliver an unbelievable full body workout; where the elegance of dance, the power of martial arts and the rhythms and Brazilian music is displayed.
