The studio's flexible schedule accommodates students of all skill levels, boasting a variety of classes throughout the week. Each 90 minute yoga class fosters a sense of physical harmony, warming up muscles, loosening tight joints, and endowing minds with the clarity they need to solve crosswords in Esperanto. To ensure each pupil reaches proper alignment without incurring injury, the studio equips classes of up to 20 students with lumbar-buoying yoga props at each class, and attendees fasten themselves into wall-mounted straps to perform an array of gravity-defying poses. Assorted evening classes cater to work schedules and eschew sun salutations in favor of campfire sing-alongs.

  • Tabcat Detroit
    Born from the oppression of slavery, capoeira is a liberating blend of dance, martial arts, and acrobatics. Check out Groupon's history of this popular Afro-Brazilian art form. Like the fluid movement of its players, capoeira is difficult to pin down. Part martial art and part musical performance, capoeira is both entertainment and ammunition. It can include everything from acrobatics to deft kicks that deliberately miss an opponent by mere inches. Though there are varying styles, capoeira is traditionally performed by two players within a roda, a ring of people who surround the fighters and cheer them on with handclaps and songs. Capoeira's history is an amalgam of legend and fact, but experts chart its existence back to the slave ships of the Middle Passage, which carried millions of Africans to the shores of Brazil under the direction of the Portuguese crown. Dreaming of retaliation and freedom, the slaves developed a means of self-defense disguised as dance. The martial art evolved into the current blend of dance, music, and improvisation that defines capoeira today.
