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 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.
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.
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.
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.
