Product Description

What is Capoeira? Capoeira is a martial art, developed in Brazil by African slaves more than 400 years ago. It is an all-encompassing art, blending blending music, dance, singing, acrobatics, play, and self defense. All these come together into a unique, cohesive whole. Capoeira is the most physical of all the arts.

As a form of exercise, Capoeira engages all muscles groups, helps develop flexibility, balance, coordination, and endurance, and offers significant toning and cardiovascular benefits. Accessible to persons of any age and body type, Capoeira is much more than a martial art: It engages practitioners on a social level as well, placing them in touch with a living tradition and a rich historic heritage.

The Capoeira Workout Created by Paula Verdino, aka Instrutora Pimentinha, is an open-level program, including both a step-by-step breakdown of many classic capoeira moves and a full set of non-stop high-energy workout sequences. The workout sections progress from isolated movements with transitional steps in between to graceful dance-like combinations. The program also includes Capoeira solo performance by Paula and Capoeira game demonstrations by Paula and her assistants, Lara Silva and Marie Viggiano.

The Music:</> The rhythm of the capoeira game is determined by specific musical instruments and songs. All the music heard in The Capoeira Workout comes from the original capoeira musical recordings of Mestre Bimba (Manoel dos Reis Machado), as heard in his famous release, Mestre Bimba e a Voz do Berimbau, licensed via the Fundação Mestre Bimba, Salvador, Brasil.

About the Actor

Paula Verdino, aka Instrutora Pimentinha was born in Salvador, Bahia, Brazil. She began training as a capoeirista under professor Sabia, the world-renowned capoeira teacher and practitioner of the GINGA MUNDO capoeira group.

Paula Verdino fell in love with the martial art and dedicated herself to capoeira, full time. She achieved the rank of "Graduada," allowing her to teach, and participated in many projects in Brazil working with underprivileged children and adults while teaching capoeira in public and private schools.

Paula Verdino won "Best Female Overall" at the World Capoeira Games in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, and competing again one year later won "Best In Rank" among all male and female competitors.

After being brought to a capoeira event in New York as a special guest, Paula was quickly offered the opportunity to open her own classes in the city. Today Paula has received the Instructor rank and teaches regularly in Manhattan, Brooklyn, and Long Island, and also travels widely, leading workshops and capoeira events across the US, as well as in France, Sweden, Portugal, and elsewhere.

I used to do capoeira for a few years but haven't had time to go to classes for almost a year, so I was very excited to see that this DVD was coming out because I thought it would be a nice way to continue with my practice on my own. I did it for the first time yesterday, however, and was very disappointed by how short it is.

Although the DVD does start with a review of the basic moves/kicks you'll be doing and a brief history of this martial art, the workout itself is only about 20 minutes long, including the warmup. There is also no cool-down or stretch at the end.

On the positive side, all of the music is by Mestre Bimba and there are some good sample rodas to watch and learn from.

Overall, it's an alright workout that provides a nice overview of the basic moves (like Benção, Queixada, Martelo, etc.), but I felt like it could have been much longer.

Me and my husband tried this video for the first time and we loved it!!! Paula Verdino is an amazing instructor who provided clear instructions on the different types of techinques. I definitely apprecipated the background and history of Capoeira and its music.
The warm up was very good and the workout was intense, even a cave man can do it! Although the video was short we are hopeful that there will be a series to follow. This is a great video for beginners, who which to learn more about what makes Capoeira such an amazing sport in Brasil and around the world.

It looks like it is a decent workout. I just didn't have enough floor space in my house to actually do the workout. Make sure you have enough floor space!

Oh how I wish this was a 60 minute dvd. The actual workout is only 20 minutes. Not nearly long enough. But it was intense and fun. Please make more of these world dance new york

Instructor did an amazing job explaining the moves in workout #1. Can't say the same for workout #2. She just keeps saying "And go" - then jumps into a routine. The workout segments (combined) are much too short. An added 15-20 mins would have made all the difference.

One may ask, what is capoeira? I am glad to have found out, now you should too! This is one of the most fabulous exercise &, instructional programs from World Dance New York that I have gladly subjected my body to. I found Capoeria a playful, skilled dance with martial arts woven in gracefully and sublelty. One may think of martial arts and remember Bruce Lee.; but here comes Paula to put it all together as a fun,intense work out with full benefits in muscle tone, agility,and flexability.
Beginning with the warm-up, this is intense. The program incorporates level changes, kicks, torso rotations, cartwheels. You will feel every muscle in your body claim its name. The amazing thing is that upon viewing the program initially, one may have the misconception that this program is not for them. Follow through with the warm up and instantly you are hooked. Paula has a way of presenting the warm up that is friendly and inviting and not threatening even for the faithful couch potato.
The technique is explained in sections, then applied in 2 workout sessions; the first section introduces the basics and slow technique, the second workout session applies intense kicks, torso rotations on the floor which are faster paced.
This dvd is rich in content and runs approximately 38 minutes.
Paula and her partners devote a section to explain the use of hand held instruments used in playing the capoeria rhyhtms, a section for exhibition of capoiera games, and then Paula herself in a skillful exhibit of her abilities in capoiera. She is beautiful to watch!
I have been doing some of the capoeira moves only a few days, and found myself applying some of the lunges and torso balancing in my sword dancing with a faster response time. Initally, I did not think I could follow through, the lunges were challenging, but I am glad I did.
I love this program, it is full of benefits that enrich my dance life.

In my novice opinion this is a good, all Capoeira workout- I've recently been introduced to Capoeira and love the fun, challenging workouts that are part of this beautiful martial art. This video is a good way to practice what you learn in class - especially for a beginner who is still learning to combine movements. The workouts are short, but challenging.

This is a killer on butt and legs and pretty amazing all-around workout. I started going back to some yoga and and started Pilates to improve my flexibility and strengthen my lower back which also helped to compliment this program. I liked trying something different and will keep it in my workout mix.
