Intelligent Movement

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. 

Kathleen Keller created a program to address posture problems. In doing so she made sure that I understood the proper technique. She did this with both verbal and visual instructions. Knowing that people have different learning styles means that Kathleen's treatment will have the most beneficial results for her clients. This is certainly true for me.

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.

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 have now taken several of the Keller Method's self myofascial release courses. As a Physiotherapist, these courses have been very practical and easy to implement into my practice. Kathleen holds a wealth of knowledge and has a wonderful way of sharing this knowledge with others. I highly recommend Kathleen and her courses!

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 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.

Dr. Kerry Korber

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.
