Do you have a trampoline? Thats how I've been training for a while. Use the tramp to get used to the general feeling of flips, and gradually try doing them with less bounce at the beginning. Once you can do it just standing on it, try doing them from the outer rail of the trampoline and flipping onto it. That should be a good start.

I began flipping at a gym that has open gym sessions... most of the time there are some experts there that can give you help.  Open gyms are less expensive and generally range from 5-15 dollars for 2-3 hours.  When i started flipping these were my best friends :)
