I began my journey just after entering college. As a former athlete with no outlet I soon found yoga and the Afro Brazilian martial art capoeira. They showed me a certain serenity I hadn’t found before. Capoeira in particular truly captivated me and I embraced it as a part of my life. It gave me discipline, focus, and an environment to be young and express myself. It wasn’t long before I started teaching classes and eventually began running the largest capoeira group in Southeastern Wisconsin.

My capoeira classes are light hearted, fun and full of energy.

My capoeira classes are light hearted, fun and full of energy. I encourage everyone to push themselves to learn new skills that will make them stronger and more coordinated while maintaining a focus on the fundamentals. Capoeira is about improving yourself, connecting to the rhythm of the things around you, and building community. I invite everyone to join me in this spirited practice to do just that!
