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 has helped me to regain my strength, range of motion and even my hope, following several rounds with cancer, several complications from treatments and multiple post-survival challenges. Her incredible knowledge of how the muscles in the body work together, extensive experience with pilates methods, customised approach and her positive passionate energy have allowed me to continue fully living the life I have fought so hard to keep. She continues to teach me, coach me and inspire me.
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.
