The students of Capoeira Força Natural in Helsinki have training at Pasila, just a few minutes train ride from the city centre, and in Pihlajanmäki on Saturdays. We practice capoeira de Angola with appropriate methods, music, acrobatics, and physical exercises. We welcome everyone without looking at age, previous sporting background and so on. Welcome!

Spring 2023

The beginners' class is mainly on Tuesday, whereas Thursday training is for more advanced level training but the beginners are also welcome to join the training. Saturday training is for all levels and there we often focus more on playing capoeira and capoeira music as well as practising the art of the roda de capoeira – the circle where the capoeira game is played and performed. In our classes, we aim to incorporate a multitude of different facets of capoeira, ranging from movement to music and different aspects of Afro-Brazilian culture. Come and try capoeira for free! Welcome!
