About Kit

Kit’s desire to share her knowledge and make a difference in her clients’ lives makes her not only a dynamic teacher but also a prolific student of movement and the human body. Kit has been working with clients from all walks of life, including Irish and Ballet B.C. (British Columbia)  dancers, all ages from 8- 85, injury rehabilitation, Parkinson Disease, Scoliosis, and Rheumatoid Arthritis.  During her time as a Pilates teacher, Kit has been as influenced by her clients as they have been by her, giving her a sense of accomplishment with every breakthrough.  She enjoys her clients’ successes as if they are her own.

Kit is currently completing a four year study program in Feldenkrais in the USA (intensive training modules) to become a movement practitioner.

I believe people have the right to live their lives to the fullest and they are responsible for their own well-being.

My philosophy is to treat a person as a whole being.  Irrespective of age, people have the capability and ability to move all body parts freely, with grace and without pain. It lifts my spirit and gives me a deep sense of purpose to facilitate people toward the living of everyday life with great comfort, awareness and fulfilment.
