"12 years ago I started my own journey of reclaiming and re-discovering movement by starting to learn Parkour. I was 35 at the time. I then continued my education by learning about MovNat and a more holistic approach to movement, health and well being. I was scared of everything and have taken baby steps all the way. I am stronger and more able than I could have hoped for and the journey is never over. Health is freedom and movement is health, so feel free and come and move!

"I have been a personal trainer for 16 years and have studied with a lot of really great movers. I've always wanted to learn Parkour but have been really intimidated because at 35 I felt like this ship has sailed. That was until I was able to train with Julie. Not only does she make it fun but very accessible. Her attention to detail and joy about what she teaches is infectious. When we trained it was fun and engaging so I had no conception of time and the play/workout flew by. It has since been such an influence on my philosophy of training that it is really amazing. Every time I have the chance to train with Julie it's a no brainer. She is the best." Jared Tavasolian, Personal Trainer and Nutrition Coach, 35 yrs old.

"I have spent all my life training and teaching martial arts, Yoga and different kinds of movement styles such as MovNat. I am very picky about who I spend my time training with. Julie is an amazing teacher and a delight to be with. I was kind of scared to start Parkour and limiting myself thinking that at 43 I was too old for that. Julie taught me I was wrong and I love the way she teaches. She is kind and precise. Details are everything in Parkour and she mastered the details. Time flies with Julie and I can concretely feel my progress from our sessions. I know you will enjoy her company and way of teaching as I do because she rocks, she is so knowledgeable and fun. Be your own guru and do Parkour." Chris Tai Melodista co founder and co owner of Be Jaya Reset Rebalance Recover.

"My first attempt at completing the level one certification for Movnat would absolutely not have been possible if it had not been for the encouragement, direction, and drive from Julie Angel. Julie seems to know how to meet you where you are at and give you the guidance and courage you need to try something new in a safe yet challenging way. She also seems to have an uncanny ability to relate to multiple personalities which in my case I’m sure was tough . She wore this cool t-shirt and I had to ask what it was all about. I had no idea what See&Do was and with my background was thinking of the sunny days on the beach with my jetski. Yeah that’s not it. Julie teaches you things through your own eyes so you can “see” then “do”. That is a tricky task and she somehow pulls it off. There were multiple trainers at the program I attended and they all have their strengths. I appreciate all of them. A special thanks to Julie however because at the end of the day she pushed me just enough, encouraged me just enough, and made training super fun to earn my cert. Thanks Julie!"
