About us.

Free Your Instinct is a young and dynamic charity that helps people with mental health support needs through the delivery of specialist Parkour classes by qualified and experienced coaches.

Our aims and objectives:

  • To use Parkour to promote mental and physical wellbeing to those who have recognised a mental health need
  • To physically and mentally enrich the lives of users through parkour
  • To offer development opportunities and coaching
  • To promote the Charity within the Mental Health community
  • To ensure a duty of care to all members of the club


Free Your Instinct started in 2015. The Charity was founded by Charlotte Boenigk, a former exercise specialist for NHS Mental Health Services, Charley Hobson-Merrett, a former NHS accountant and Jacob Peregrine-Wheller, a ParkourUK qualified coach with a background working with participants with emotional and behavioural difficulties.

Since 2015 Free Your Instinct has established itself as a pioneer of using Parkour to help people with mental health support needs and operates in London, Somerset and Bristol with plans to expand into further areas.
