people will suffer from mental health issues at some point in their life. Physical activity, being outdoors and having a support network are proven to assist in management and recovery of mental health. Free Your Instinct aims to use the philosophy of parkour to achieve these benefits.
WHAT IS PARKOUR?
Parkour, or freerunning is a discipline, a physical art, a way of life and a sport. Practitioners of this unique sport learn how to move between urban structures using running, jumping and climbing. Parkour offers numerous styles of movement from navigating from point a to point b in the quickest, most fluid way, to more creative dance based urban movement. Parkour teaches us to overcome physical and mental obstacles, a skill that can carry over to everyday life.
Parkour is non-competitive. There are no team battles, no losers. Participants succeed by expressing and discovering themselves through movement.
