Hello, I'm Kathi

I have been teaching in the fitness industry since 1984, have many certifications and taught thousands of classes.  I am also the managing director of one of Victoria’s leading physiotherapy clinics (Arbutus Physiotherapy & Health Centre) and therefore surrounded by expertise at every level.

It is my passion to motivate students, from teens to seniors, to become fitter, pain-free and most importantly, to enjoy the ride.  I don’t take myself very seriously, and believe
that in order to stick to any fitness regime it must be fun, interesting and effective.  I try to infuse every class with knowledge, routine and interesting movement patterns to challenge my students both physically and mentally.  I believe the subconscious mind absorbs the words we use and our response to situations,
and therefore, feel positive language and maintaining a positive attitude will shape our lives and our physical bodies.  I learned this at a very young age and this is who I am to the core (pun intended).  Humour has also always been a big
part of my life and it seeps into my teaching style.  

I believe wellness and a strong, energetic body is your birthright.  My classes will strengthen, lengthen and stretch your body to create uniform muscle development, freedom of movement and superior skeletal alignment.  

This is my first time posting live and pre-recorded classes online and it is my honour to share them with you.  I invite feedback and suggestions as I embark on this new platform.  Welcome!
