Intelligent Movement

Practices for Life

kathleen keller

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 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.

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!

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.

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 !!!

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.

I have been seeing Kathleen for a while now. She is an amazing and thorough therapist.

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.
