Capoeira is a Brazilian martial art that combines self-defense, acrobatics, dance, music, community, and culture. Over the past 500 years it has evolved from a secret fighting practice into an art emphasizing self-expression and community celebration.


Professora Água-viva is a student of Mestre Fenix,

Grupo Candeias Seattle, and has been teaching youth and adult classes in West Seattle since 2016.


Professora Água-viva started Capoeira in 2001 with Mestra Marcia of ABADÁ Capoeira San Francisco. After the birth of her son in 2008, Professora Água-viva took a break from training and moved to Seattle with her family. She started training with Mestre Fenix, Grupo Candeias, in 2012. 


Professora Água-viva has spent nearly 25 years studying various movement practices and continues to attend educational events and workshops. She travels to Brazil and to other locations around the world each year to participate in Capoeira events, competitions, and workshops; and as a sought out teacher she is invited to lead Capoeira classes and workshops around the U.S. throughout the year.
