Connection Rio guests were given a very special opportunity to take a Ginastica Natural group class, set outdoors in the beauty of the Connection Rio house garden!
Ginastica Natural is a holistic form of exercise that combines elements of yoga, jiu-jitsu, bodyweight exercises, animal movements and more. Created by Alvaro Romano, a Brazilian jiu-jitsu black belt and former student of Rolls Gracie, Ginastica Natural is practised by many MMA fighters including Vitor Belfort and Antonio Rodrigo ‘Minotauro’ Nogueira.
Rapahel Romano, son of Alvaro and himself a BJJ black belt, came to the Connection Rio house in Barrinha to teach a small group class in the sun. Surrounded by the trees and mountains of the Tijuca Forest, it was the perfect setting for the training session.
Connection Rio regularly hosts special events for our guests, including trips and tours to academies and other places of interest around Rio de Janeiro, guest professors teaching classes at the Connection Rio house, and much more.
