About our guest:

Professora Paula started Capoeira in 1995 with Mestre Guerreiro from the Candeias group (at the time) in Goiânia, the city where Mestre Bimba died, because she found it magic, beautiful, fun and challenging. She remembers really falling in love with capoeira 2 years later when she started training with Mestre Secão, from the same group.

After 5 years of intense training, Paula became Graduada in 2000 and started to teach and travel around Brasil. In 2004, she started studying Physical Education to better understand how the body works during exercising & movement, with a constant focus on improving her capoeira training and teaching. In 2010, following a very serious injury in her back who kept her out of Capoeira for 4 years, she added Strength Training and Yoga to her lifestyle.

Once completely recovered and strong enough to play again, Paula started again capoeira when she moved to Australia in 2014. Since then, she became part of her husband’s group, Xango Capoeira, and she lives of teaching and training Capoeira on the Gold Coast.

Today, Professora Paula is a Capoeira teacher, Personal Trainer, graduate in Physical Education, postgraduate in Strength Training, postgraduate in Functional Training and a Yoga practitioner.
