This workshop is not only for experienced movers (dancers, martial arts, freestyle movers, acrobats) but also motivated beginners. You don't need any special acrobatic or dance skills, you don't have to be particularly agile or overly strong. However, you should have an active movement practice - no matter what style.
The workshop consists of three pillars:
Know Thy Body:
Body Awareness, Strengthening and Mobilizing Joints throughout their Radius, Spinal Suppleness and Breathwork, What can a movement practice look like that keeps modern people healthy and inspired? "Know Thy Body" aims to empower the practitioner to create such a practice that satisfies the need for movement and provides space for self-exploration.
In addition, this part prepares the body and mind for the practice that follows.
Chaos and play, fall school and hardening the body, training responsiveness and solving movement challenges. How can one prepare for the unknown? How can quick reactions be trained and what do appropriate reactions look like? How can we teach our bodies and ourselves to act intuitively again?
In this part we challenge creativity and problem solving skills through solo and partner work.
Diving Into The Floor:
Movements that allow the body to transition effortlessly into the floor and back to standing, elements from acrobatics, dance and improvisation. What healing effects does moving close to the floor have on the body? How can one's own creativity and imagination be stimulated through the "Diving into the Floor" practice?
Finding Flow will give practitioners a multifaceted insight into Nils movement style, learning strategies, dealing with frustration, partner work and creative work with their own bodies. Didactic and methodical means are chosen that give the practitioners space for individual experimentation on the one hand and following technical instructions on the other.
In addition, the practitioners are confronted with topics such as risk and fear management, whereby individual limits are always considered and respected. Everyone decides how far to go.
Saturday - the foundation. Train body awareness, learn basic elements, expand understanding of movement.
Sunday - building up. Expand concepts, develop elements, deepen method.
After the seminar, all participants will receive a summary document with videos, texts and other resources that were covered during the weekend.
Nil has been involved in various physical disciplines since childhood and shares his experiences and ideas for a holistic, long-lasting, fulfilling and joyful movement practice in his work.
His interest in working with the body and, secondly, with the 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 training, open-mindedness and a constant curiosity about life as the cornerstones of his work.
His teaching is informed by his interest in and practice of many systems and disciplines, including dance, rehabilitation & health training, parkour, acrobatics/artistry, bouldering/climbing, weight training, 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.
