Video: Guests Can Work out with Capoeira Lessons at Cheeca Lodge

By: Terry Ward


I visited the newly reopened Cheeca Lodge & Spa recently in Islamorada in the Florida Keys. And what a surprise to learn that one of the resort's fitness offerings is the Afro-Brazillian dance form called capoeira, something I've long wanted to try.

Africans brought these flowing moves to Brazil several centuries back. And now capoeira (a mix of martial arts, dance and music) has become a trendy -- and very energizing, not to mention fun! -- way to get a workout.

Have a look at my video, which shows the resort's instructor demonstrating some basic capoeira moves that guests can learn (while burning off all that Key lime pie, to boot! )
