The Evolve Move Play Movement Experience

Start Your Epic Movement Journey


APRIL 28TH-29TH, 2018

What you will learn:

Natural Parkour

We evolved to move in nature. Evolve Move Play developed an approach to cultivating the flow we evolved for by applying parkour to the natural environment. Our approach has a track record of success with all ages and skill levels.


You will learn to grow full body strong, become adaptable and resilient, and learn important principles of communication and negotiation.

Training The Mind

One of the great benefits of movement practice is cultivating your courage, problem solving and communication capacities, to apply to the rest of our life. We break down techniques to overcome fear, to solve complex movement problems and communicate and negotiate well in partner training.

Joint Integrity And Mobility

To build a resilient supple body.

Breath Work

To calm, center and energize yourself.

Movement Lifestyle

How to incorporate movement into your whole life.

Become a stronger, more adaptable, more antifragile, more embodied, connected and happier human through the power of natural movement.

“I came home with a new passion for movement that transcends any view of fitness or health I had ever had before. I came home with a true appreciation of what it means to be healthy that, despite many years in the health and wellness world, I had never had before.” ~Laura B.

Who Is It For?

If you are passionate above movement, and nature, and want to develop a movement practice that will bring the most meaning to your life, then this seminar is for YOU.

The EMP movement experience is designed to be accessible and beneficial to all levels and ages 14 and above, or possibly younger depending on the maturity of the child.

Seeing what our students and coaches are capable of is sometimes intimidating to beginners, but the whole point of our EMP system is that it is adaptable to all levels! We have had students as young as 11 and as old as 73 join us with no difficulty. Our students have spanned the gamut from untrained novices to elite parkour and MMA athletes.

What Will You Need?

The tools we use with our introductory seminars are simple:

  • Your body,
  • The natural environment,
  • And a few toys we will bring.

You will want to bring

  • Athletic clothes,
  • A water bottle,
  • Sun protection if desired (we will be outside all day),
  • A notebook & writing implements,
  • And most importantly your taste for adventure and spirit of play.

This was quite honestly one of the best experiences of my life...

“Ultimately, this is so much more than a physical experience of returning to the physical aspects of what makes us human. It is about returning to community, returning to human connection and allowing ourselves to be vulnerable with others, and just having fun. This was quite honestly one of the best experiences of my life and I would love to be able to attend again.”

Jamie R. (Seminar Participant)

Guidance to explore our physical capabilities...

“Rafe gave us permission and guidance to explore our physical capabilities as well as push our personal boundaries.”

Robert L. (Seminar Participant and now EMP Coach)

so holistically rich that I struggle to put a monetary value on it...

“People come into one’s life by chance. Very few of these random interactions leave such a profound positive impact that one shudders to think the path life would have taken otherwise. I consider having met and worked with Rafe one of the interactions in my life; one so holistically rich that I struggle to put a monetary value on it.”

Kam L. (Seminar Participant)

It’s odd to think about how powerful that one jump has been in my life...

“It’s odd to think about how powerful that one jump has been in my life. I mean, speaking literally, it’s just a jump between two rocks, but I draw on that experience all the time. Not JUST when I’m faced with physical challenges, but when I need to find the courage to speak up, to be more authentic, to be vulnerable, to try something new, to stop the internal dialogue that says “who are you to think you can do this.”

Maura R. (Seminar Participant)


Am I too old? Too fat? Too much of a novice?

If you can walk and run, you are ready to join us. We have had students as old as their 70’s join us and have a blast! Folks who haven’t moved outside in 20 years share their joy in moving and feeling like a kid again.

Do I need to be skilled at parkour?

Nope. Some of the students you see in our videos doing amazing movements learned them the week they trained with us, this is a seminar for all levels.

Are there payment plans?

Yes, absolutely. We realize this is a big commitment and we’re happy to work with you to make sure you can join us.

What is the cancellation policy?

Our cancellation policy is a full refund 30 days prior to an event, but no refund thereafter. Our seminars are often in high demand and take time to plan so we need to know that far in advance who can come.
