About The Retreat

Join international health and wellness expert Kathleen Keller, in this unique and all-inclusive retreat. Kat is a master-educator, with 35+ years of teaching experience. She has focused on therapeutic methods to help heal the body since 2007.

You will learn a profound self-care method called TRE® – Tension Release Exercise. This technique gives you an easy way to profoundly release stress from your body, on a very deep level. You will discover how to release tension, from where it gets trapped, with-in your central nervous system and myofascia (your bodies connective tissue).

In the luxury of the ultimate natural mountain destination, let Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise look after all your needs, while you concentrate on yourself.  Enjoy delicious healthy meals, pamper yourself with a world-class massage or spa treatment, explore the gorgeous trails, relax with new friends, or read a good book.

Re-set your central nervous system to “CALM
Profoundly RELAX with a powerful self-care technique

TRE®– Tension Release Exercise
WITH TRE® you learn how to safely activate your natural mammalian reflex mechanism.  This opens the door for you to “make friends with your central nervous system”. You learn a series of innovative, yet basic exercises, that can be modified to suit most fitness levels. The exercises help your body release deep muscular tension and myofascial holding patterns of tension, stress, or trauma. You learn how to profoundly calm down your nervous system through “shaking or vibrating”. Kathleen holds your space and guides you through the process to activate this natural mechanism. In the serene and safe setting of the Chateau, your system will return to homeostasis (balance).  TRE® produces the same brain waves as meditation, yet you don’t have to clear your mind, a real bonus for people who find meditation difficult.

Due to the nature of TRE®, all interested retreat participants must complete a confidential participant information form for Kathleen to review. TRE® is appropriate for almost everyone, but your safety and comfort levels are our primary concerns. Kathleen will reach out to you after you submit your registration and participant information forms, before your reservation is confirmed.

  • “I have taken several of the Kathleen’s Self Myofascial Release courses. As a Physiotherapist, these courses have been very practical and easy to implement into my practice. Kathleen holds a wealth of knowledge and has a wonderful way of sharing this knowledge with others. I highly recommend Kathleen and her courses!” – Gayle
  • “I highly recommend Kat for TRE, Pilates & Self Myofascial Release. She has true empathy and patience. I can’t say enough great things about TRE! It’s the greatest stress release that I have ever experienced, and I can do it myself which is a god-send. As someone who suffers from rheumatoid arthritis, Kathleen is extremely knowledgeable and is always able to adapt my sessions to the ever-changing needs of my body.” – Catherine

  • “With Kathleen, it is not just about exercising, it is about developing your whole body harmoniously, restoring the balance between left and right, top and bottom and waking up muscles you didn’t even know existed. You will get hooked if you start with her!” – Isabelle
