Fresh from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil we have Professor Marcelo Medusa (, along with Instrutora Megha Makam ( (Palo Alto) to teach capoeira at Hyper Active Monkey Fitness!

Capoeira is a Brazilian martial art form that playfully incorporates music, dance, and acrobatics. Folks with all levels of experience are invited to participate. Instruction will be customized based on the experience of the attendees.

In this workshop, we will teach the basic stances (ginga), defenses, attacks, feints, escapes, and acrobatics. We will also teach music - songs in Portuguese (don't worry, it will be easy!) and percussion instruments.

Please bring water and wear comfortable workout clothes (ideally, with a shirt that tucks in).

We plan to extend our capoeira program at Hyper Active Monkey Fitness, so stay tuned for more updates!

Spread the word, come through, bring a friend! We are going to have hella fun!
