Established in 2007 Kalijo Pilates was the first fully-equipped Pilates Studio on the Sunshine Coast of Beautiful British Columbia, Canada. Perched on the shore of scenic Davis Bay it enjoys an ocean sunset with a stunning view of the Georgia Strait and Vancouver Island. The Studio is a progressive place where bodies are assessed, strengthened, balanced, and reformed using the Classical Pilates Method created by Joe Pilates and continued by the prolific Taylor sisters; Amy Taylor-Alpers, and Rachel Taylor-Segel from The Pilates Centre in Boulder Colorado.

Amy and Rachel trained under Romana Kryzanowska, Joseph Pilates’ protégé and inheritor of his studio in NYC, and founded their studio in Boulder, CO in 1990. It is from there that Katherine Denham, the founder of Kalijo Pilates, earned her Masters in Classical Pilates and was registered as a Licensed Teacher Trainer for The Pilates Centre Teacher Training Program. Consequently, all Instructors at Kalijo are graduates of The Pilates Center’s Advanced Classical Pilates Program which is arguably the most comprehensive program in the world.

We at Kalijo are very grateful for our Pilates studio by the sea and the legacy we uphold. Our passionate Instructors are continuously educating themselves in Pilates and complimentary bodywork modalities. Kalijo believes that Pilates heals the body and returns its practitioners to life. Moreover, it creates a connection between the mind and body which increases people’s energy and abilities and consequently their efficacy at everything they do.

Kalijo wishes you all the best… and hopes to see you in the studio!
