The benefits of practicing Capoeira.
Improve your core!
Control and agility rely on core strength which you will constantly improve in Capoeira. This will improve your game and also help improve the health of your spine and joints which rely on a strong core for support. CapoeIra is true functional training in which all muscle groups are integrated with intense cardio, which has been shown to be the most effective path to fitness by world class athletes and weekend warriors alike. In a capoeira class workout, you start with basic moves such as a simple side-to-side step with alternating front kicks and punches as a gentle warm-up and then continue to increase intensity and complexity until every muscle in your body is engaged. It is health, physical, psychological, emotional, spiritual, is complete, playing, singing, using your intelligence, alertness, happiness, confidence, togetherness, friendship. It touches so many aspects of your life that it becomes infinite. It is a transformational lifestyle.
The exercise routines of Capoeira engages the upper body by working close to the ground mimiking movements of animals along with headstands, poses and rolls. These activities engage the core and abs resultsing in fantastic upper body strength.
The strenuous routines promotes flexibility in the body on par with Yoga. Even for a beginner in Capoeira, you will still see an amazing increase in flexibility.
Unlike many other sports, Capoeira engages muscle groups in unique ways. All the routines require energy to coordinate with the group. All these factors, in addition to repetitive movements, make Capoeira an intense cardio exercise. This increases the muscular and cardio vascular endurance of the body and provides more stamina.
The main essence of performing Capoeira is to do all the movements fluidly in a very short amount of time. As a martial arts technique, this will make your response time better and the body more agile to react to other people’s moves.
Experience, Passion and Dedication.
