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