The picture above is from just one year ago at the inaugural Art of Retreat: A Parkour Symposium. If you look closely (up and toward the back middle), in the midst of awesome people from organizations like The Movement Creative, Apex Movement, American Parkour, Parkour Visions and Parkour Generations Americas, you'll see Urban Movement coaches Cameron Pratto and Ra. We had a blast and we're so grateful for being invited last year that we sponsored the event this year. You can spot our logo on their Patrons page by clicking here.
A group of us from the global parkour community gather in and around New York City to talk shop, see what other teaching professionals are working on, discuss projects like gyms and parks, brainstorm styles and standards, and just having fun sharing knowledge with like-minded people that are leaders in their community.
The event was such a success last year, being filled with fun movement and theory sessions, we can't wait to see what's in store when it all kicks off again in just one month!!!
Since registration is now closed and applications are no longer being accepted for this year, if you want to know more about how to be involved next year please follow The Art of Retreat.
