OFFERING ONLINE Customized Private & Small Group Sessions
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.
I am a physician and around 7-8 yrs ago I herniated a disc in my lower back skiing. I tried everything including physio, massage, personal trainers and prolotherapy, all with some degree of success. But I was still left with a lot of pain and tightness in my muscles and my experts felt it was myofascial pain. I saw Kathleen to do Therapeutic Ball and she taught me how to roll on various balls to release muscle tension and pain mainly in my lower back, buttocks and legs.
Recently I saw her again to do upper body and feet. She has an incredible knowledge base and is passionate about what she does. For those of us with busy lives she provides a way to treat ourselves at home, releasing the days tension and pain on our own time. Therapeutic ball has given me a sense of control over my own pain and hope in knowing that I can control it myself.
I had been practicing Pilates for almost 10 years before I met Kathleen. She is hands down the best Pilates teacher I ever had.
With Kathleen, it is not just about exercising, it is about developing your whole body harmoniously, restoring the balance between left and right, top and bottom and waking up some of muscles that you did not even know existed. Kathleen’s rigorous and diverse training means she is incorporating a range of exercise practices and body knowledge into her practice.
Her long collaboration with physiotherapists means she is perfect for continuing the rehabilitation sessions once the physiotherapy appointments have run out.
Come and exercise with her, you will get hooked!
I’ve been a client of Kat’s for the better part of 3 years now and have participated in both private 1-1 pilates sessions as well as group mat classes thoughout that time. She’s helped me through a back injury via traditional pilates, active ball release and stretching. Her knowledge, support and kindness are one of a kind!
I have spent the last several years trying to manage a chronic shoulder and elbow problem and have explored countless modalities of treatment and exercise regimes to help the healing and strengthening of my arm. My physiotherapist suggested I seek the help of Kathleen Keller and The Keller Method™.
Kathleen’s knowledge of Pilates and of stretching are exceptional and her patient and countless corrections of positioning and technique are helping me correct years of body compensation and incorrect technique. I am relearning correct posture and gaining skills that can be worked into a home practice or taken back into the group class setting, whether that be Pilates, yoga, weight training or basic stretching.
However, it is Kathleen’s application of Therapeutic Balls that sets her apart and that has made such a big difference for me. There isn’t a body part that Kathleen can’t stretch, relieve and improve with her collection of balls and for me, this has translated to relief of pain, an easy to do regime outside of the studio, and a travel friendly work out.
The Keller Method™ has worked for me. I can attest personally to the benefits of The Keller Method™ and would highly recommend Kathleen’s one on one instruction for anyone working through a new or old injury, for someone looking to start a core strengthening program or for someone who routinely goes to classes and just wants to polish their technique.
