Also this year, Nil invites for an open level Practice Intensive in his hometown of Munich. Join for an intensive and immerse experience where you will gain in depth insights into Nils various practices and study, explore and research side to side with Nil and the group.

 

Elements, methods and concepts from acrobatics, dance, partner work, body conditioning, falling practice, improvisation, nature and environmental practice and other areas that influence and inspire Nil’s practice will be introduced, deepened and interwoven.

The following content will be presented individually during the intensive as well as linked together. The exact content will be chosen spontaneously, as Nil likes to work with the energy of the group and set an authentic process in motion.

 

 

Internal Practice:

The role of breathing, meditation and mindset in movement and how we can use these tools in our practice. Here, body awareness and body experience are at the forefront and guide the learning process. This part will be used as a warmup for this workshop and will be held relatively short.

 

Conditioning, Strengthening and Mobilization:

How can we keep our bodies strong and supple all around? This part presents routines and methods that can be practiced and explored on an ongoing basis, preparing the body for specific physicality. The approach is oriented towards holistic development of the body and not just in isolation, as is often the case in the fitness industry.

 

Falling Studies:

The focus is on fear management, honing intuition, and trust in oneself. Through solo and partner exercises, creativity and problem-solving skills are challenged while effortlessly confronting fear of falling. Rolling and falling techniques are learned and tested in a playful way. Ultimately, we will transition from abstract practice to specific acrobatic material – Falling Acrobatics. The work is heavily inspired by Nil’s many years of skateboarding and acrobatic experience.

 
Partner Practice:

Moving on the edge of the impossible. Through partners we can go where alone we can’t go. In playful scenarios we experience ourselves while supported, challenged and guided by others. From duo tasks to full group games. Our approach is inspired by various forms of movement, dance and bodywork.

 
Acrobatics and Improvisation:

The fascination of movement in space, on the ground and with gravity, elements from acrobatics and improvisation. Rolling, supporting, upside down, jumping, slow, fast, gentle, explosive and wild. How can we navigate from isolated, technical through more integrated, sequential and ultimately to freeform practice? How can concepts and imaginative work help to enrich our practices? Nil follows an approach that aims to find effortlessness, lightness, precision and calmness in movement. It is less about learning particularly difficult elements and more about finding pure joy in expressive movement and flow.

 

Environmental Practice:

Immersion into urban/nature, sharpening the senses, jumping, rolling, climbing, balancing swinging and connecting with the urban nature within and without. Learning to see how we can use our environment actively, how to participate in and create with it.

Open Level:

To participate in the workshop you don’t need any special acrobatic or dance skills, you don’t need to be particularly agile or overly strong. However, you should have an active movement practice – which style doesn’t matter. Please remember that we will be moving intensively for many hours.
All participants of past events do not have to worry about repetitive material: the workshop is being revisited and updated frequently. While basic material will be taught in this one as well, Nil offers a great range of variations for all experience levels.

 

Post Workshop:

Following the seminar, all participants will receive a summary document with videos, texts and other resources that were covered during the weekend. It is understood that the resources will be treated with respect.

 

Bundle Option:

In addition, there is the option to purchase the bundle of workshop and Nil’s Finding Flow „Basics“ and „Integrations“ online courses (optionally „Acro Continuation“ and „Refinement“ – advanced!) as a pre- and post-workshop preparation. The courses include high quality and detailed videos, descriptions, an exercise structure and much more exciting content. The cost is workshop price +200€ (regular 300€).

About Nil:

Nil has been involved in a wide variety of physical disciplines since childhood and has been sharing his experiences and ideas about a holistic, long-lasting, fulfilling and joyful movement practice in his work for over 10 years.

 

His interest in working with the body and mind began at an early age. After studying sports science in Munich, training as a massage therapist and attending many seminars on a wide variety of topics, he began his professional work as a teacher. Nil sees continuous education, open-mindedness and constant curiosity about life as the cornerstones of what he does.

 

Teaching is informed by his interest and practice of many systems and disciplines, including rehab & health training, acrobatics, skateboarding, bouldering, dance, weight training, parkour, gymnastics, combat, yoga, meditation, bodywork, didactics, pedagogy, etc. The way of working is and remains dynamic: new experiences are integrated into the work, superfluous things are discarded.

 

The teaching goes beyond the physical: aspects such as learning experiences and processes, exploration of the self, trust in one’s own body or fear management are an integral part of the approach.

 

The work is informed by many teachings, including:
Tom Weksler, Fighting Monkey Practice, Moshe Feldenkrais, Katy Bowman, Ido Portal and many more.
