New 7-Week Live Video Course Starts
Wednesday, November 29, 2023
 
 
 
 
 

Reduce pain, boost energy, improve circulation, and activate a felt sense of wellbeing through a gentle physiotherapy-based movement practice that fuses traditional Eastern wisdom and Western medical science.

Connect with your gut-brain (your enteric nervous system) and gut feelings to lovingly mobilize your body’s capacity to increase blood flow and positive energy — getting the benefits of meditation and exercise without working hard.

 

Would you like to strengthen and balance your mind, body, and soul — while inducing deep states of calm and relaxation?

Would you like to activate your body’s innate capacity to live longer in full command of your physical, mental, and emotional health and wellbeing?

It’s possible with 5-Dimensional (5-D) Flow, an embodied meditative movement practice by physiotherapist and research scientist Simon Borg-Olivier.

It’s a different model for embodied health that utilizes mindfulness practices and five fluid movements — lengthening, bending, side-bending, twisting, and expanding/contracting...

... to activate the gut-brain connection at your core, enabling your body to work with and not against natural homeostasis and mental, emotional, and spiritual flow.

The result is increased longevity and circulation, maximized flexibility, a calm nervous system — and a functional body that’s often pain- and stress-free, energized yet calm, and mentally clear and focused enough to hold health and happiness as a default state.

Yes, it’s possible to reap the benefits of exercise and meditation without working too hard!

In fact, Simon says vigorous workouts are actually counterproductive, tending to activate numerous stress responses in the body that are not conducive to long-term health and wellbeing — and may even cause stiffness or pain.

5-D flow synthesizes more than 50 years of study with many of the world’s best masters of Indigenous and traditional forms of posture, movement, breathing, and mindfulness into potent practices...

... that naturally leverage your body’s physiology to increase the health and strength of your system.

In joining Simon for this 7-week somatic movement course, you’ll learn these powerful practices by aligning your intention with embodied movement techniques that harness your body’s natural blueprint for longevity...

... and innate ability to self-regulate, improve energy efficiency, move with ease, and fill every cell of your body with life-giving information.

Simon teaches that our health and wellbeing hinge on how well our minds and bodies work together to transport positive and loving information to each of our 50 trillion cells — while remaining relaxed, centered, and calm.

At the crux of 5-D Flow is how to improve circulation without increasing your heart rate, strength while focusing on being relaxed, flexibility without stretching, and energy while breathing less.

You’ll begin to relieve spinal, neck, lower back, knee, hip, sacroiliac pain, and more by self-regulating your health and wellbeing through little-known bridges between your conscious (central) and unconscious (autonomic) nervous systems.

 
 
 

During this somatic movement course, you’ll:

  • Learn how to physically connect with your gut-brain to enhance the function of the immune, reproductive, and digestive systems
  • Quickly and effectively improve circulation in your body to improve energy levels, blood flow, release toxins, and bring in more oxygen
  • Give yourself an internal massage with simple movements
  • Begin to relieve spinal, neck, lower back, knee, hip, sacroiliac pain, and more
  • Build energy, increase blood flow and oxygen release, and activate your whole body as a pump so your heart doesn’t have to work as hard
  • Release trauma, tension, and stress by connecting with the physical bridges between your conscious and unconscious mind
  • Obtain balance between the masculine logical brain in your head and the feminine intuitive gut-brain at your core
  • Explore how to reset your nervous system to be energized yet calm
  • Begin to restore natural regenerative breathing
  • Learn how to share good energy and loving information to your cells — improving the health of all body systems
  • Improve energy efficiency and the effectiveness of walking and swimming by using backward movement
  • Begin to balance your hormones by increasing circulation but maintaining relaxation, so there is less cortisol and more oxytocin
 
 

Simon will guide you through practices that help you initiate health, love, and happiness through the parasympathetic nervous system — the system that grounds your capacity to feel calm, peaceful, and safe.

This system also supports self-reflection and expansion, and circulates its healing benefits into the immune, digestive, and endocrine systems — while supporting your deeper evolution.

As you learn how to turn this system on organically by reinstating natural posture, movement, and breathing, you’ll simultaneously turn on your connection to your authentic self, your soul, and your body’s innate ability to balance and heal.

Health becomes something you are, not something to achieve, as you begin to work in, not out to maintain your body’s naturally balanced state — no longer stressing yourself through rigorous, energy-depleting workouts.

Join us if you’d like to learn a less stressful approach to exercise that inspires mental, emotional, and spiritual flow to create and circulate vibrant streams of health and loving energy throughout your entire being.

What You’ll Discover in These 7 Weeks

In this 7-week transformational intensive, Simon will guide you through the fundamental skills and competencies you’ll need to activate a felt sense of wellbeing — without excessive or stressful exercise — through a gentle physiotherapy-based fusion of traditional Eastern wisdom and Western medical science.

Course Sessions Wednesdays at 5:00pm Pacific
 

This course will feature LIVE teachings, interactive sessions, experiential practices, and Q&A with Simon. Each session will build harmoniously upon the previous ones, so you’ll develop a complete holistic understanding of the practices, tools, and principles you’ll need to practice 5-Dimensional Flow and improve your health without excessive or stressful exercise.

Module 1: Connect With Your True Core & Gut-Brain to Enhance the Function of Immune, Reproductive & Digestive Systems (November 29)

 

Connect your thinking brain to your enteric nervous system — your gut-brain that exists at the core of your body — to improve the function of your immune, reproductive, and digestive systems.

Simon will guide you on how to access 12 specific places, or bridges, in the body that have dual control of both your conscious mind, which governs the somatic nervous system (everything except your brain and spinal cord)...

... and your unconscious mind, which governs the autonomic nervous system (your involuntary physiological processes).

Engaging your somatic and autonomic nervous systems at the same time will instill greater physiological balance, mental agency, and self-regulation over your overall health and wellbeing.

In this module, you’ll:

  • Learn how to physically connect with your gut-brain to enhance the function of the immune, reproductive, and digestive systems — and obtain balance between the masculine logical brain in your head and the feminine intuitive gut-brain at your core
  • Explore how to reset your nervous system to be energized yet calm
  • Release trauma, tension, and stress by connecting with the physical bridges between your conscious and unconscious minds
  • Begin to restore the regenerative, natural breathing of a child or a healthy sleeping adult in your daily life
  • Enhance the health of your immune system by improving blood flow while in a relaxed state
 

Module 2: Promote Circulation, Release Toxins & Relieve Lower Back and Hip Pain With the Earth Moon Fire Sun Practice (December 6)

 

Explore the postures, movements, and breathing that can help you relieve lower back and hip pain, increase blood flow, and improve heart rate variability.

Simon will guide you through a practice to gently and fluidly move your core, trunk, and spine from a shortened to a lengthened state, and from a forward-bending (spinal flexion) to a backward-bending (spinal extension) state.

The Earth Moon Fire Sun practice will also help you detoxify naturally as you learn how to move in more than one dimension at a time.

In this module, you’ll:

  • Learn how to quickly and effectively improve circulation in your body to improve energy levels, blood flow, release toxins, and bring more oxygen in
  • Improve your heart rate variability and enhance digestive health through gentle leg movement and parasympathetic engagement as your hip flexors open and relax and your breathing regulates — without focused breathwork
  • Begin to relieve most lower back pain by lengthening, relaxing, and mobilizing your spine — and nourishing it with better blood flow
  • Learn how to relieve hip pain with simple movements that alleviate physical pressure on the hip that happens due to prolonged sitting
  • Discover the secret of moving your body fluidly and gracefully, which involves learning how to move in more than one dimension at a time
 

Module 3: Improve Spinal Mobility & Decrease Neck Pain With the Earth Water Moon Practice (December 13)

 

Enter an energized yet calm state using postures, movements, and breathing associated with gently and fluidly moving your core, trunk, and spine from a shortened to a lengthened state, and from a left to right sideward bending (spinal lateral flexion) state.

Simon will guide you through movements to increase spinal mobility and alleviate neck pain.

In this module, you’ll:

  • Learn how to relieve neck pain by massaging your neck with shoulder movement
  • Explore how to safely and effectively move sideways without pain
  • Begin to improve spinal mobility by releasing both sides of the spine — one side at a time
  • Discover how to improve reproductive health through movement that creates suction
 

Module 4: Relieve Knee & Sacroiliac Joint Pain With the Fire Air Sun Practice (January 3)

 

Alleviate knee and sacroiliac joint pain — and improve digestion — this week.

You’ll be guided through the postures, movements, and breathing of the Fire Air Sun practice as you gently and fluidly move your core, trunk, and spine...

... from a forward-bending (spinal flexion) state to a backward-bending (spinal extension) state, while simultaneously twisting (spinal axial rotation) to the right and left.

This movement will help you increase the health of your internal organs, especially those of digestion, reproduction, and immunity.

In this module, you’ll discover:

  • How to effectively mobilize your spine in twisting
  • How to relieve knee pain and improve knee structure and function
  • How to relieve sacroiliac joint pain (at the lower spine)
  • How to improve digestive health by massaging internal organs with abdominal movement, relieving constipation
 

Module 5: Improve Energy Efficiency & Promote the Flow of Good Energy and Loving Information With the Water Air Moon Practice (January 10)

 

Stimulate the calm, restorative effects of your parasympathetic nervous system.

Simon will guide you through postures, movements, and breathing associated with gently and fluidly moving your core, trunk, and spine — while combining side bending and twisting.

This enhances blood circulation with a low heart rate while promoting the flow of good energy and loving information in your body as a model for how you can be in the world.

This Water Air Moon practice can also help improve walking and swimming performance.

In this module, you’ll:

  • Improve energy efficiency and the effectiveness of walking and swimming by using backward movement
  • Build energy, increase blood flow and oxygen release, and activate your whole body as a pump so your heart doesn’t have to work as hard
  • Give yourself an internal massage with simple movements
  • Begin to balance your hormones by increasing blood circulation
 

Module 6: Enhance Cardiovascular Function & Optimize the Health of Your Spine With the 12 Ether Cycle Sequence (January 17)

 

Explore the postures, movements, and breathing associated with gently and fluidly moving your core, trunk, and spine...

... from a shortened to a lengthened state and from a forward-bending (spinal flexion) to a backward-bending (spinal extension) state.

This promotes enhanced heart rate variability and optimal internal health of your spine.

In this module, you’ll discover:

  • How to get strong while focusing on being relaxed
  • How to get flexible without stretching, through movement in opposite directions and moving actively from your core
  • How to improve blood flow without increasing your heart rate
  • How to improve energy levels while breathing less than normal
 

Module 7: Gauge the Health of Your Body & Mind With the Extended 5-Dimensional Flow Practice (January 24)

 

There will be a short introduction, followed by an extended fluid meditative practice of posture, movement, and breathing to music designed to bring everyone into the flow state, or zone, of the elite athlete.

This practice can leave you feeling pain-free and functional — energized yet relaxed, and mentally focused, peaceful, and joyful.

In this module, you’ll:

  • Share good energy and loving information to your cells — improving the health of all body systems
  • Begin to relieve depression and trauma — and improve the quality of your sleep
  • Discover the simple recipe for happiness — and activate a new path to health that is regulated from the inside out

“... after I received treatment from Simon Borg-Olivier for my knee, my knee felt more stable, I could move more freely, and I had less pain.”

I thought I needed surgery for my knee after rupturing my anterior cruciate ligament. But after I received treatment from Simon Borg-Olivier for my knee, my knee felt more stable, I could move more freely, and I had less pain. Now, it has been eight months since I have been practicing the exercise assignment, and I’m so glad I never went for an operation. Although I would be reluctant to go play squash again at this stage, I can comfortably function in my daily life.
— Emily Stanley, Sydney, Australia

“I think these simple exercises should be taught at every school.”

I have had lower back pain since I went to university in my late teens. Simon Borg-Olivier’s spinal movements have helped me tremendously. Provided I remember doing at least 10 minutes of these exercises daily, I remain pain-free in my lower back. I think these simple exercises should be taught at every school.
— Paul Mackay, Melbourne, Australia

“After my first session with you, I felt immediate relief, and it was much easier to breathe and move.”

Thank you very much, Simon, for helping me with my asthma problems. Before meeting you, my breathing had seemed difficult every day. I was previously too scared to exercise at all. After my first session with you, I felt immediate relief, and it was much easier to breathe and move. Now, after practicing your simple breathing exercises for the last four months, my asthma is no longer a problem, and I have regular movement practice that makes me feel great.
— Janice Crowley, Perth, Australia

More Praise for Simon Borg-Olivier...

 
“I consider Simon a modern-day body mechanics wizard.”

When I saw Simon for my knee consultation, I could hardly walk. The meniscus tears in both of my knees created so much movement limitation. What I learned from Simon were simple, effective co-activation exercises that immediately gave me a significant increase in movement and a decrease in pain. I consider Simon a modern-day body mechanics wizard. For the last 20 years, Simon has taught me how to manage my internal processes in ways that give me the capacity to self-regulate and meet my energy management and vitality goals. Working with me to reconfigure my knee damage took it to the next level. The surgery I was required to get was no longer required.
— Zoe Braithwaite, ACRO Boss

 
“If you’re serious about understanding the mechanics of your body and every detail in between, you have found the master.”

In 2019, I spent nearly a month training with Simon in Bali, Indonesia. I can profess with the utmost enthusiasm how much that experience and this movement have augmented and healed my mind, body, and spirit. If you’re serious about understanding the mechanics of your body and every detail in between, you have found the master. Simon is among the most authentic, intelligent, kind, funny, and delightful humans. What a joy his presence is. I can’t recommend Simon’s classes, courses, and teacher pieces of training enough.
— Shanan Löuise, Quantum Energy Rewire, Columbia River Gorge, Oregon

“Simon’s expertise and passion for yoga were truly inspiring, as he effortlessly brought a new level of depth to my practice.”

My teacher training with Simon Borg-Olivier was a profound experience that completely transformed my understanding of yoga and deepened my journey of self-inquiry. Simon’s expertise and passion for yoga were truly inspiring, as he effortlessly brought a new level of depth to my practice. His ability to illuminate the intricacies of yoga poses and their spinal transitions was enlightening and eye-opening.
— Raphaël Semeteys, YogĀrkana, Paris, France

“I started studying Simon’s courses, and immediately, through these practices, my recoveries became faster...”

I practice kettlebell lifting, and I train seven days a week. I practically have an addiction to movement, so I have taken many supplements for years while following adequate dietary regimens. I started studying Simon’s courses, and immediately, through these practices, my recoveries became faster, and after about four months, the need for supplements began to decrease. Today, by practicing one session a day of the 5-Dimensional Flow, I practically feel as if I were taking a booster.
— Dr. Valerio Capi, Italy

“Simon is the caliber of insightful genius and innovator within his fields of expertise you will rarely find.”

I have been an osteopath for 24 years. Back when I was training at UWS, in (only) one class demonstration, Simon absolutely blew my mind with his incredibly extensive knowledge base, blending the principles of his qualifications in physiotherapy with his qualifications and insights into the principles of traditional movement forms, which still to this day resound with me. Simon is the caliber of insightful genius and innovator within his fields of expertise you will rarely find.
— Mark Baer, osteopath
