Hi, I'm Kaila!

I am a Certified Pilates Instructor with a bold Aries personality and slight matcha obsession.

About Me

Growing up as a competitive athlete, I lived an active lifestyle filled with high-intensity exercise that stressed my body mentally and physically, with no results to show for it. After suffering from hormonal issues and several injuries, I was encouraged to seek forms of exercise that were challenging but restorative. I found Pilates, and over the past five years, I have become obsessed with its ability to completely change my body's functionality while grounding, healing, and centering me. 

 

Through an ever-evolving wellness and personal journey, I have found my why and what lights me up— which is making people feel good in their bodies.

Following the COVID-19 Pandemic, I pivoted alongside the shutdown of fitness studios and launched my own business, The KM Method. I now run a complete schedule, see clients all day, run quarterly challenges, and have many exciting things in the works, and this is just the beginning. 

 

In addition to the power of exercise, I am also fascinated by the healing power of food. I am working towards becoming a certified Holistic Nutritionist to educate on the healing properties of nutrition and natural supplementation.

I AM BEST KNOWN FOR

Taking an intuitive approach grounded in the fundamental Pilates principles.

MY MISSION IS

To empower and educate you to connect to your body through movement.

I INTEND TO

Help you move in a way that is effective, empowering and strengthening.

As I write this today,

I have worked hard to build a lifestyle and healthy rituals centred around consistent functional movement,  whole food nutrition, and self-care activities. With all of this, I have discovered a way of living that makes me feel incredible, and I am so happy to share it all with YOU! 

 

Welcome to the #KMfam!

WHAT INSPIRES YOU AS A TRAINER?


Watching my client’s relationship with exercise change! More specifically, empowering and educating them to feel good in their bodies and teaching them to become in tune with the form and purpose of the movements, where they should be feeling them etc. It is amazing to see the shift that happens when exercise goes from being mindless to mindful.




COFFEE OR TEA?


Ah! This is so hard. If my adrenals and nervous system could handle coffee then it would be coffee, (super coffee from Nutbar is my fav) but sadly they cannot so tea is my go-to! Specifically, Matcha Green Tea.




FAVOURITE WORKOUT MOVE?


Bird-dog or Quadruped arm/leg reach for all my Pilates Instructors. It is a very functional movement; it works so many different muscle groups and is great for beginners and advanced as the variation possibilities are endless.




BEST WAY TO MAKE ME SMILE?


With kind words! Fun fact, my love language is words of affirmations so kind words go a long way with me.
