Practices for Life
Kathleen brings a vast wealth of knowledge to her clients. Her approachability, four decades of teaching experience, sense of humour and compassion, have made her a much sought-after teacher. Kat has distinguished herself as an international leader in movement and has been known as the “teacher’s – teacher” since 2002.
Kat works with all types of people with chronic issues, not necessarily caused by accident or injury. A multitude of other factors such as lifestyle, postural habits and chronic stress can negatively affect one’s overall health.
She offers one-of-a kind, therapeutically blended sessions, tailored to suit your unique needs. She specializes in alleviating pervasive conditions that alter or reduce your ability to move without pain. With infinite patience she will help you re-train your ability to move more efficiently.
Kat will help you to diminish guarding patterns, halt overly-recruited muscles and wake-up the ones that are under active. She can teach you how to profoundly discharge stress and the best ways to make your myofascia healthier.
Let Kathleen show you the way to understand and feel your body on a deeper level.
As a result of years of injury and training on the Canadian National Bobsleigh Team with coaches that lacked an understanding of wellness in combination with performance, I really appreciate passionate movement experts. It is on this note that Kathleen Keller’s expertise shines, she is one of the rare professionals that knows what makes the difference. Kathleen is a highly inspiring movement expert. Her ability to evaluate postural compensations, correct them, and provide hands on integrated anatomical knowledge in movement makes me smile as I write this testimonial. I would highly recommend one-on-one sessions with Kathleen for athletes as well as business people who are looking for wellness and performance. My sessions with Kathleen have noticeably improved my daily posture and my maximal strength.
Kathleen has helped me to regain my strength, range of motion and even my hope, following several rounds with cancer, several complications from treatments and multiple post-survival challenges. Her incredible knowledge of how the muscles in the body work together, extensive experience with pilates methods, customised approach and her positive passionate energy have allowed me to continue fully living the life I have fought so hard to keep. She continues to teach me, coach me and inspire me.
I was recommended to start Pilates as a way to stabilize a low back condition, which I have been dealing with for years. Since our first session, I have been extremely thankful for the care, knowledge, understanding and professionalism displayed by Kathleen in her practice. She has taken the time to research my back condition and really understand how to incorporate the right movements to help me manage the instability, reduce/eliminate the pain and make me stronger and healthier.
She has also helped me regain range of motion and strength in my left shoulder after a major surgery to repair a torn labrum. I can’t recommend her enough to folks that are trying to restore their core strength and flexibility.
As a Registered Massage Therapist, I value Kathleen’s ability to integrate her excellence in technical expertise, exceptional knowledge of anatomical structure and function and passion for Pilates and Release Techniques into high quality sessions. Kathleen simultaneously creates Pilates sessions which are challenging, enjoyable and inspiring in an environment of safety and acceptance. I appreciate how she has taught me as a student how to bring Pilates principles into my daily life to improve the overall function of my body. This has resulted in improved postural habits and movement patterns, improved strength and an increase of body awareness. I highly recommend TKM Pilates and Therapeutic Ball sessions to all of my clients, colleagues and friends.
