From learning about the history and then actually practicing the basics of Capoeira to engaging our bodies and minds with the flexibility promoting positions of Yoga and more activities , attendants at the festival where able to enjoy while challenging themselves with the aim of improved fitness awareness.

We had a Capoeira training session with Rotimi Thomas (@rothomas21), who took us through the history of Capoeira and its basic movements.

Capoeira is a martial art created in the 16th century disguised as a dance. It was used when west african slaves that where taken to brazil by Portuguese colonists rebelled against their slave masters.

We also learned the basics of Tai Chi. Obinna Emodi (@tsk_fitness) gave us a run down of the martial art that is great for relaxation and meditation as well as deadly in the right form and execution.

Tai chi is low impact and puts minimal stress on muscles and joints, making it generally safe for all ages and fitness levels. In fact, because tai chi is a low impact exercise, it may be especially suitable if you're an older adult who otherwise may not exercise.

There was a little dance aerobics to get our bodies moving, while grooving to the music!

Like other forms of exercise, dance aerobics helps burn calories and fat. The number of calories burned depends on the speed of movements, length of exercise, and the persons height and weight.

Of course we did a little Yoga, and we became one with the wind. Jemima Abu (@Jemima_abu) showed us how to calm our minds and harness our chi by going through basic yoga positions for starters.
