Intelligent Movement

Practices for Life

kathleen keller

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!!

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.

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 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 is my rock ! She truly cares about your entire well being. She has helped me for the past nine years deal with back, hip, shoulder and personal issues.  With her , I can at 62 enjoy traveling, hiking ,kayaking, golfing and even water skiing.  She is my blessing.

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 came to Kathleen following years of neck and upper back tension. I'd tried yoga and several forms of massage therapy but it hadn't helped. Kathleen, with her years of experience with rehab, was able to teach me to access specific muscle groups in an entirely new way. I now move and exercise differently, and the tension in those areas has almost fully resolved. I believe that training with Kathleen will allow me to remain injury free and stay strong and fit as I age.

Dr. Miriam Berchuk

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.
