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.
Kathleen is a superb teacher!! She has helped me enormously with a number of health issues beginning with rehabilitation for two knee replacements and then to management of chronic arthritis pain. Our work together has helped me to build strength, maintain a high degree of flexibility and to move with ease. I am extemely grateful for her knowledge and expertise in both pilates and therapeutic exercise! Suggestions for a "home program" serve to further enhance our work together. Thank you Kathleen!!
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.
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.
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.
