Guest Info

For Rafe Kelley, Natural Movement has been the key theme in his life since childhood. He was raised at the end of a dirt road surrounded by forest. In those woods, he found solace from the stresses of school as a child with ADHD and Dyslexia. At 15, he began studying gymnastics. And at 23, he discovered parkour, becoming one of the first parkour teachers in North America and co-founding Parkour Visions, one of the world’s most highly respected parkour teaching institutions. 

His students have included world-class parkour athletes, MMA fighters, and untrained grandmothers, and the common theme in their responses to his approach is that it is life-changing on many levels. His passion is to help people build the physical practice that will help make them the most robust, most adaptable, and most resilient version of themselves in movement and life.
