0 (7)Capoeirasana is a yoga class developed from the perspective of a capoeirista designed for everybody!  The class utilizes teachings from capoeira, yoga and acrobatics to create an asana sequence that challenges and supports a practitioner into advancing their practice.

Core strength, coordination, alignment and balance will be fortified  through arm balances, inversions (bananeiras) and backbends (pontes).  This is an all-levels class. The capoeirista that seeks injury  prevention or alignment refinement in a movement, as well as the yogi  eager to be exposed to some aspects of capoeira will both benefit. At any level, you will be asked to explore your edge.

A Hatha yoga instructor since 2008, AcroYoga found her in her front yard in Flagstaff in 2006. Many immersions, workshops and classes later in three continents, Melinda became a certified AcroYoga Teacher in 2011 (TT7). For the last 9 years, Melinda has been practicing and is an instructor in the beautiful afro-Brazilian martial art of capoeira as a student of Mestre Doutor (ASCAB Capoeira). She looks forward to sharing this joyful practice with anyone, especially those willing to play their edge.
