Capoeira Workout®

In the late 1990's Edna successfully adapted the dynamic movements of Capoeira into her trademarked CAPOEIRA WORKOUT® group exercise program. Capoeira Workout forms a bridge between cultures that links participants in a moving communications with a dynamic aesthetic that transcends social boundaries.

The methods of CAPOEIRA WORKOUT® combine the elegance of dance, the power of martial arts, the science of biomechanics, and the rhythms of Afro-Brazilian music.

CAPOEIRA WORKOUT® was recently featured in Martha Stewart's Body+Soul and in Latina Magazine

CAPOEIRA WORKOUT® has been presented at ImPulsTanz, International Dance Festival, The Wingate Sports Science Institute in Israel, New York Sports Clubs, Chelsea Piers, Equinox, and Duomo in New York City, plus fitness centers throughout Brazil and Japan.
