“Finding Flow” is a concept that deals with the topic of body awareness, body perception and whole body coordination. The participants experience a playful introduction to the concept, learn to perceive their body better and integrate new movement patterns aimed at suppleness and lightness into their existing repertoire.

 

In the “Finding Flow / Diving Into The Floor” online courses, you will receive a playful approach to movements that allow the body an effortless transition to the floor and back into standing (work on several levels), elements from acrobatics / microbatics, locomotion and the flowing sequencing of the learned content. You will be given tools to make your movement practice more dynamic, intuitive and playful.

In this online course, you will learn the basics of my Finding Flow concept. No previous experience in acrobatics/gymnastics/dance is required. However, if you have already gained experience, this will certainly be an advantage for you.

 

During the six weeks, we will work on elements close to the ground, which can serve as transitions between individual movements – for example roles in all directions. In addition, body perception, the strength and the stability of the body are challenged and trained by some drills. Elements from acrobatics, such as Macaco or the cartwheel, present you with a mental challenge that must be overcome through practice. At the end of each session, all the movements learned are combined and sequenced, which is ultimately intended to create a “flow state” with practice – the mind remains silent, the body takes over.

Besides new movement patterns and tricks, you also learn to control your body and work on suppleness and elegance.

Practical Part

  • Warm-up exercises and warm-up routine for acrobatics
  • Coordination and proprioception exercises “Pivoting” and “Book Balance
  • Floor transitions and rolls
  • Introduction to Locomotion/Crawling
  • Introduction to “Soft Acrobatics” (Cartwheels, Macaco, Armswipe, ..)
  • Sequences in which learned content is combined into small flows
  • Specific strength and mobility training for acrobatics

Theoretical Part

  • Tips for an intelligent movement practice
  • “Reflections” on “Diving into the Floor” and “Continuous Movement”
  • food for thought

You can buy the complete online course for 150€. The course includes a PDF with the respective exercises and video tutorials, the full program for the six weeks and practice tips. After the course, you can continue practicing as often and as long as you want, because you can keep the PDF.

If you have already taken part in my beginner online course or have already gained previous experience in acrobatics/dance/gymnastics, this continuation is just right.

During the six weeks, the contents of my Finding Flow concept will be deepened, individual elements will be expanded and your understanding of movement will be further developed. Besides challenging roll variations (“Breakfalling”), demanding support exercises (Reversao, Macaco variations) and air exercises, this time you will be confronted with “imitations”: Exercise sequences, which you can learn alone by imitating and thereby train your understanding of movement and learning.

 

In addition to new movement patterns and tricks, you will also learn to control your body and work on suppleness and elegance.

Practical Part

  • Warm-up exercises and warm-up routine for acrobatics, coordination and feeling exercises “Stick Balance” and “Lazy Boy”
  • Floor transitions and Rolls
  • Kip Up, Au Reversao and Macaco Switch (Macaco Variation) as well as “Breakfalling”
  • Sequences in which learned content is combined into small flows
  • Specific strength and mobility training for acrobatics

Theoretical Part

  • Week 1-6: „Imitations“ – Look closely, imitate and try for yourself

The third part of my Finding Flow Online course series only makes sense after completing the first two courses. Here we will refine the elements already learned and go into detail, which will lead to a deeper understanding of the subject matter.

 

In addition to the refinement of already learnt content, we will go deeper into the topics of “Improvisation” and “Free Form” in this course. How can the different elements be used in an open setting? In addition, new techniques are also learned in the course, which enable an even more detailed communication with the floor. After completion of the three Finding Flow courses you will have a comprehensive repertoire of movements which will enable you to practice in a playful way. The floor will be your friend, which you will not want to miss in your practice.

Practical Part

  • Follow Along Warm Up Routine
  • Improvisation tasks and promotion of creativity
  • Refinement Block (Macaco, forward cartwheel, floor elements)
  • New elements (helicoptero, QDR and bridge, new ground elements)
  • many small sequences and transitions

Theoretical Part

  • Tips for an intelligent movement practice
  • “Reflections” on Refinement and Improvisation 
  • food for thought

FAQ

Do I need special equipment for the program?

You need a small area to practice – at least 3×3 meters. I recommend practicing on either thin mats or grass.

I have no experience with acrobatic elements, gymnastics or similar, is the course suitable?

Yes! In the Basics course, a playful insight into my Finding Flow concept is given. The exercises can be adapted to different levels. The Continuation and Refinement course is suitable for advanced students.

How often should I practice?

I recommend to practice two to five times a week for about 45-80 minutes. Additionally you can repeat the warm-up exercises daily.

What will I learn in the program?

In the classes you will be shown basic movement patterns that will allow you to communicate with the floor in a playful way. Your body awareness will also improve. By the end of the course you will also have received many tools that will enable you to practice independently.

Can I move after the programs as seen in your videos?

Of course your progress depends on several factors: your previous experience, your commitment and your body awareness. You can definitely expect to reach a new level of suppleness and body awareness. Until you can really move fluidly and efficiently in this style, it takes time and requires continuous practice.

Can I ask you for tips/help if I don't get along?

Yes, you can send me a video/text once a week in which you ask questions or show me your exercise. You will then receive a message within 48 hours.

Is there a discount if I buy multiple Mini Programs? Can they be combined?

For two courses you pay 250€ instead of 300€ and for 3 courses 300€ instead of 450€. The pancake course can be combined perfectly with the acrobatics courses.
