Practices for Life
The Keller Method Pilates and Rehabilitation approach is an integration of Pilates and Self Myofascial Release Techniques (SMR) together with current scientific findings. The results are ease of movement, muscular balance and elongation, improved core strength and better posture.
Kathleen’s extensive background in rehabilitation, movement science and myofasica training expands on Pilates’ principles by adding advanced body awareness and principles from motor control theory. Kathleen works all along the movement spectrum from post-surgical or chronic pain to athletes and everyone in between. She believes that everyone can do Pilates.
When I met Kathleen, I thought I was in shape; working out at the gym, lifting weights, doing lots of cardio. After a few months under Kathleen’s tutelage I realized I needed to do it the right way; the way my body would allow me to work without damaging my joints, muscles and everything else in between.
Three years later, Kathleen has given me back my mobility; she has taught me the healthy way to move, and without mobility, it is hard to move ahead in the world, mentally, spiritually and physically.
Through a combination of Kat's extensive knowledge and her network of great referrals, she has been able to bring my aging body back from what had been a surgical solution to a back and ankle with just minor irritations. Transformative, really. She has given me a life long strategy and, for that, I will be forever grateful! Thx, Kat !!!
I have now taken several of the Keller Method's self myofascial release courses. As a Physiotherapist, these courses have been very practical and easy to implement into my practice. Kathleen holds a wealth of knowledge and has a wonderful way of sharing this knowledge with others. I highly recommend Kathleen and her courses!
I was urged to visit Kathleen by a medical expert I thoroughly respect - The phone call was made that afternoon.
I came to Kathleen with the goal of expanding my knowledge of posture, alignment, self myofascial release and facial lines. Little did I know that my body would be the subject of dissection and evolution. Thank goodness this was the case: I have learned more about my movement patterns and how to adjust them to optimize my physical potential than I ever expected. As a wonderful aside, I come away with a new tool each time I visit Kathleen that I can utilize in my own practice as a Personal Trainer.
Kathleen is one of the most valuable resources I have come by in the mind/body realm - I couldn't recommend her enough.
