Are You Tired of...

Feeling sluggish, undisciplined, and unmotivated?


Wishing you could find a solid resource to inspire learning and growing in Capoeira?

Wanting to train capoeira at your convenience and not only on Zoom?

Wondering if you’re ‘the only one’ who isn’t training as much during the pandemic?

What is the Capoeira In-tune training vault?

The Capoeira In-tune training vault is designed for beginner, intermediate, and advanced Capoeiristas looking to improve their skill set, incorporate mindful practices such as meditation and boost their self-esteem.


"What I actually gained has been an invaluable set of lessons offering insight into any area of my life: Professional development, marriage and parenthood, friendships, and personal health. There truly is no area in my life where Dr. Lindsay's lessons are not applicable."

"You encouraged and inspired. You had a genuine dedication to the education of the students you taught, and I am forever grateful and indebted to your work."

Imagine If...

There was a program that helped you improve your capoeira technique while increasing your muscle mass and building endurance.

You could raise your energy levels, naturally, and feel an enhanced sense of accomplishment every single day.

You had a community of like-minded individuals from all around the world to support you on your journey.

You could learn from a 14-year veteran capoeirista, university professor, and dedicated performance enhancement educator for less than one month of your academy's tuition

Hi, I’m Vernon aka Professor Leão Preto

I am the founder of Capoeira Mar Verde, a member school of the United Capoeira Association located on the island of Antigua in the West Indies. Since 2006, Capoeira has been an integral part of my well-being and physical development. The roots with enslaved Africans speak to my soul, the movements and music speak to my heart.

As a Professor of Capoeira, it is my goal to enrich the lives of my students in big and small ways. I truly believe that Capoeira, combined with mindset enhancement strategies, can be the key to unlocking and unleashing the natural greatness that exists inside each and every one of us. It is my passion to guide you on this journey to wellness and self-improvement through the practice of Capoeira.
