Movement, Music and Ritual: The Doula Community Through The Traditions of Brazilian Capoeira with Marcela Belin

Explore the role of rhythms, ritual and music through Capoeira, a Brazilian cultural expression that celebrates individuality while creating community. Explore natural body expression and social integration in the roda (circle) with axé (good energy). As you learn capoeira’s martial arts-like elements you’ll hear the rich history of this traditional game and experience how an integrated community is a transformative power in society. Just like in Brazil, the session will end with Samba, so everyone can dance and practice your axé in the roda.
