Capoeira in the Park Continues

Posted: June 25, 2012 by L M in adams morgan, capoeira, classes, columbia heights, dc capoeira classes, U street, washington DC

We had such a great time working out in Malcolm X Park (aka Meridian Hill Park) the past two Saturdays, that we will continue having Saturday morning capoeira classes outdoors in Washington DC!

Please meet us at All Souls Church, 1500 Harvard St NW at 10:30 am; it is a short 2-block walk away from the Columbia Heights metro. From there, we’ll walk another quick 2 blocks to the northern entrance to Malcolm X park.

A few tips, as practicing in an outdoor environment has its own challenges:

  • Wear sneakers or cross trainers. Unless you like stepping on bottle caps, twigs and ants.
  • Bring plenty of water. Freeze your water bottle overnight if you like ice-cold water!
  • Put on sunscreen before class. Don’t let your skin match the red in our shirts and abadas!
  • Leave your valuables at home; you may not be able to keep a close eye on your iPod while you ginga.
  • Check our Facebook group for last-minute updates. In case of bad weather (rain or extreme heat) we will post any class updates on Facebook.

In return, you’ll get these primo benefits from an outdoor workout:

Bring a friend, pay $10 each!

  • Beautiful breezes and fresh air
  • Plenty of space to jog and practice
  • A heart-pounding, never-boring workout

  • A fun way to stay in shape

Bonus:

Bring a friend and you’ll both pay $10! That’s right, 2 students can pair up to pay just $20 for all 90-minute Saturday morning classes outdoors in the park.  Otherwise the drop-in rate is the usual $15 per person, per class. (We also offer all-included monthly unlimited passes for $125.)

As always, we still have capoeira classes on Tuesdays and Thursdays at 7:00 – 8:00 pm at All Souls church, 1500 Harvard St NW, Washington DC.
