Cultivating more connection through movement, music and bodywork, Melinda Erickson/Instrutora Risadinha seeks to serve others in their journey to do the same, drawing from several modalities. For the last 9 years, Instrutora Risadinha has been playing the beautiful afro-Brazilian martial art of capoeira as a student of Mestre Doutor (ASCAB Capoeira) and has been practicing yoga in some form for the last 12 years. Melinda is a Capoeira instructor, AcroYoga® teacher and Hatha Yoga teacher, as well as a performer.  While currently based in the tri-state area, you may find her sharing these joyful practices, nationally and internationally, with anyone willing to play their edge.

Instrutora Maravilha grew up with movement -through dance- in her life. She first encountered capoeira at a world dance workshop.  She was enchanted and fell in love with the beauty and strength of the art.  Since then, capoeira seemed to follow her until she was hooked.  Since 2005, she has spent much of her free time training, kicking, bending, singing, and dreaming capoeira.
