Kathy Conquergood

  • Bachelor of Applied Science in Physiotherapy at the University of South Australia
  • 1991 Master Trainer/Presenter for ChiBall Pilates

Kathy is an Australian trained physiotherapist, having completed her Bachelor of Applied Science in Physiotherapy at the University of South Australia, in 1991. After working in her native Adelaide for several years she traveled and worked in Britain and Europe, eventually settling in Calgary in 1995.

Kathy has been involved in sports from a young age, and is an elite squash, tennis and field hockey player, having competed on Australian State and Canadian Provincial teams. Kathy was most recently a member of the Canadian National Womens Padel Tennis Team competing at the World Championships in Dec, 2010. Involvement in sport provides Kathy with an expert perspective on sports injuries and their prevention.

Kathy has recently focused her attention on Clinical Pilates, a highly specific exercise regime designed to promote dynamic stabilization. Clinical Pilates has been found to be very successful for rehabilitation of spinal injuries related to motor vehicle accidents, work related injuries, and for chronic back and neck conditions. She completed her “Rehabilitation Series” Pilates training with Polestar Education in June of 2000. (Polestar Education Pilates is taught by physiotherapists and is a modified type of Pilates designed for more specific rehabilitation).

Whilst working in Australia in 2000, Kathy gained invaluable experience treating patients with chronic back and neck pain using Pilates equipment at a premiere Physiotherapy and Pilates clinic. It was while working at this clinic that Kathy was first introduced to the ChiBall, and its use in conjunction with physiotherapy. She found it was an invaluable tool to teach clients postural awareness, to facilitate movement patterns, and to release stress and tension from the spine. Kathy first introduced this new and unique therapy to Calgary in September of 2001.

Kathy's plans for the future are to continue teaching workshops to health professionals, so that the ChiBall Method will eventually be more widely used in Canada and the USA.
