In contrast to my online individual training, here you’ll get a fixed program, which offers you a solid introduction to the respective topic. Within the program there are of course always preliminary stages or progressions, so that you can adapt the exercises to your level.
The courses contain lectures, i.e. short video lectures on the respective topics, a training structure with video links to all exercises and specific instructions for practicing.
On the one hand, the pancake is the basis of many movement patterns from gymnastics, dance and acrobatics. On the other hand, by constantly practicing this pattern, many typical mobility restrictions, such as in the backside and inside of the leg or with hip rotation, are resolved.
In addition to the exercises, each week there is a short video lecture in which theoretical background knowledge is imparted. This includes, for example, various stretching methods such as “Contract/Relax”, “Active mobility” or “Ballistic stretching”.
The training can be done at home, only a few light weights and a small stool are needed. It is recommended to practice the contents of the course three to four times a week for about 30 to 40 minutes. The course content will continue to be accessible after the end of the six-week coaching phase.
During the six weeks I will work on elements close to the ground, which can serve as transitions between individual movements – for example rolls in all directions. In addition, the body perception, the strength and the stability of the body are challenged and trained by these 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.
The training can be done at home, as long as there is enough space (approx. 3×3 meters) for the exercises. I advise beginners to practice on grass or thin mats. It is recommended to practice the contents of the course three to four times a week for about 45 to 60 minutes. The course content will continue to be accessible after the end of the six-week coaching phase.
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 elements, this time you will be confronted with “imitations”: exercise sequences, which you can and should learn alone by imitating and thereby train your understanding of movement and learning.
The training can be done at home as long as there is enough space (approx. 3×3 meters) for the exercises. For this course it is worth practicing on grass or thin mats. It is recommended to practice the contents of the course three to four times a week for about 45 to 60 minutes. The course content will continue to be accessible after the end of the six-week coaching phase.
Here are some insights into the training of some of the participants. Result speaks for itself.
Aaron just after six weeks of focused Pancake work.
“Attended both Nil’s acro- and pancake mobility courses. My preconcived notion was that online coaching could never compete with hands on coaching, but My was I wrong. Being coached by Nil, my strongest impression was his broad knowledge and honest non-dogmatic teaching and breaking down traditional and modern methods of acrobatics/ movement/ mobility and really producing practical ideas and being very open to individuality and not afraid to give us material and trust our capability to chew on it as he later gave individulized and really pin-pointed feedback.“ – Tsz-Hin
“Wonderful coach and a great inspiration. I did two online acrobatic courses with him, which I enjoyed very much. He makes complex moves easy to follow and understand and has such a great and positive energy that is almost contagious.“ – Satya
