Juneteenth Healing: Capoeira Class

This is a past event.

Tuesday, June 15 at 4:00pm to 5:00pm

PVH - Parkview Housing, Parkview Turf
11200 SW 8th ST 33199, Parkview Housing, Miami, Florida 33199

Participants will engage in one of the few martial arts to not originate from China, with its background coming from African ancestry. In this session partakers will learn why Capoeira practitioners (called Capoeiristas) identify this martial art as a game and not a fight and use the term play rather than competing. Participants will learn how to work with others collaboratively, while simultaneously developing their own personal physical, mental, and spiritual expectations. Capoeira incorporates all three into a whirlwind of corporeal movements meant to stimulate self-awareness, group activity, and togetherness, which are some of the primary tenets Juneteenth represents.
