CAPOEIRA (Ca-poh-eh-ra) is a form of martial art that combines self-defense with music and acrobatics. It was developed in Brazil over ?a period of about 400 years with its roots stretching all the way back to Africa.
In this workshop I will teach you some capoeira songs to which we will sing together, creating the space for the magic to happen. We will also go through a brief warm up and mobility practice and dabble in some acrobatics. After that I will teach you a sequence of capoeira movements so you can have your own small, flowing, capoeira game in the roda (wheel). Let’s play! Vamos Jogar!

Invoke & Release: An Immersive Yin Experience
Leah is a dedicated yoga teacher and massage therapist based out of Calgary, AB. Her journey into the health and wellness community began in 2009 after encountering some serious mental and physical health setbacks. Recognizing that her current lifestyle was not sustainable or conducive to the person that she ultimately desired to be, she began attending Moksha yoga regularly with the original intent of solely improving her physical health. Her personal practice quickly revealed that physical health was only a small part of what practicing yoga could bring into her life.
Through daily practice and introspection, she was able to shift into a more positive, well balanced way of living that she is now passionate about sharing with others. Teaching yoga since 2014, she has since completed multiple advanced trainings and currently specializes in sharing the healing principles of yin yoga with others. Drawing from her personal experiences, passion and many years of involvement in Calgary’s wellness community to empower others brings her immense joy and is a mission she is committed to serving for the rest of her life.
