Natural Method comes to TXPK0
The Austin Natural Method Facebook Group has officially affiliated with Texas Parkour and is now called Austin Natural Method and Parkour Conditioning.
While there are some differences between Natural Method (also called Natural Movement) and Parkour, they originated mostly from the work of Georges Hébert and continue to carry several similarities.
Both Natural Method and Parkour focus on safety, vaulting and climbing while Natural Method focuses on the same using ten fundamental groups: walking, running, jumping, quadrupedal movement, climbing, equilibrium (balancing), throwing, lifting, defending and swimming. (we leave out the defending portion of this).
This group will host and announce workouts for both Parkour and Natural Method as well as some combined workouts focused more on conditioning the body for both practices. Find out more by looking into our academy at the top of the page or visiting http://texasparkour.com/academy/nm
