Evolutionary steps -- what does this mean?

Scientist have found that different animals came into existence at different times, and that the simpler organisms appeared earlier and more complex organisms seem to appear later. Thus it could be said that, over time, new animals have emerged that are more complex, meeting environmental demands with new strategies. This is not to say that the older strategies were not efficient -- they are, for many of the "earliest" animals can be found living their lives today.

Exploring Evolutionary Steps - What this means to us

Each phase of the evolutionary sequence has benefits for us to experience. By resting in the phase and exploring how that organism interacts with its environment, we learn about ourselves.

Through Organic Self-Learning, We Learn New Ways to Adapt

Each lesson is an exploration of a single phase, and through the organic self-learning, we have the opportunity to shed the tight muscles, the rigidness, the tension and anxiety that can be part of modern living, leaving us with a sense of ease and well being.

Rob has been providing Feldenkrais Method of Somatic Education to the Calgary region since he graduated from a Feldenkrais Professional Training program 1991.

Rob took the Feldenkrais training as it appealed to his sense of respect for the human condition: we are complex individuals living our lives to the best of our abilities. The Method continues to appeal to Rob for it has great depth and wisdom.

Rob has provided classes 40+ weeks a year since about 1995, as well as many workshops, since then. He is available for individual sessions on a appointment basis (see his website).

Rob began recording his classes at the request of a systems engineer in 1999, and continues recording to this day. Every few years he upgrades the technology of recording, storing and distributing the lessons. This is the latest tool for sharing classes.
