If you find yourself in a difficult season of life: physically and emotionally, Katia will meet you with wisdom, support, encouragement, and practical tools to safely heal.
I met her when I was starting to recover from a traumatic accident: 7 broken bones, wounds, a sprained ankle, concussion, and needed emotional support while I was healing.
Katia is an excellent listener. She is poised with questions and challenges to you, and will help you process hard things with clarity. She will be your biggest cheerleader, supporter, encourager, and accountability partner (if you so choose to commit) in your time of healing.
Conventional medical coverage was not enough for me to confidently move forward with my life. Conventional therapy, although excellent, wasn't enough either.
To heal you need to come at it from all angles, and Katia will be just that. She will work with you to heal both physically and emotionally, and that is one of the greatest gifts you can give to yourself, isn't it?
I am a professional singer and came to Katia
for help in my career.
The highlight for me was how attentive and how gracious she was while I was "processing". Attentive to what I had said and reminding me, which helped me to stay connected with my answers and my emotions.
What I felt really awesome was when I could localize and feel where I was holding my emotions in my body.
Whenever I was unclear or had difficulty identifying something, I asked her and immediately she made it clear.
Asking the right questions was really great!!
I am very satisfied with my experience.
I thought the session would be more conversational, more back and forth, but wasn't, it was different, great!
Coach Katia Ferreira really guided me to answer my own questions and doubts and helped me to get clear through my own connection and my own source.
“I am a professional actress and dancer who suffered from
Since the day I was referred to Katia Ferreira for Wellness Pilates, I changed the way I dance.
We got rid of the aches and pains, Katia taught me
"body placement", advanced stretches, she helped me to understand the basics of my body movements, showed me how to breathe better and keep a healthy posture.
I learned how to prevent injuries, and also realized that what improved my performance was not the difficulty of the exercises, but the quality of them.”
I came to Katia looking for CranioSacral Therapy. She is extremely knowledgeable and compassionate. Getting to know Katia I became more comfortable and my sessions were incredible. The tension in my neck subsided and my migraines have only occurred twice in the last few months a huge improvement from bi-weekly. I was looking for a more permanent and holistic approach to minimizing my migraines and I found it in Katia. After craniosacral I began my Pilates training looking to strengthen my core and upper body. Katia did that and more, helping me to realize that you really can work every single muscle in your body and she sure did. She also greatly improved my flexibility and taught me how to stretch properly to avoid injury while trying for half marathons.
I highly recommend Katia Ferreira .
It was great the way she guided this session step by step, watching my feelings, my desire, my power, helping me to find the way for my freedom. The love and patience to ask questions made me open more myself. Very professional and caring.
I felt very released. It worked like I was digging inside of myself.
I feel more confident and more comfortable with myself with all the decisions I am making now.
She gave me these tools that I can do it without any guilt.
Her work is profound.
I will definitely come for her full program.
I have no words to express how we appreciate all the attention, dedication and care Katia Ferreira dedicated to us.
I am a Pediatric Physical Therapist in Brazil since 1978, and brought my husband Antonio Augusto to the US to be under her assistance. He suffered a significant and important fracture in his right femur 03 months ago, and we decided to come to seek Katia’s advice and guidance, whom I’ve been known from the Physical Therapy School in Brazil since 1976.
I highlight the holistic approach Katia has to the
recovery of her clients.
I'm so glad she gave us all the support, follow up and help we needed to continue his recovery in Brazil.
I strongly recommend Katia Ferreira to all people in need of a physical treatment with a comprehensive and holistic approach.
Thank you so much my dear friend!
I had a very tight and painful back for many years.
I would go to a chiropractor, which would help, but it didn’t last. My massage therapist recommended Katia Ferreira for my issue. I was a bit skeptical, but I gave it a try.
Within 3 weeks I could feel a significant improvement.
I now have gone to Katia for the last four years, I feel safer doing my regular exercises with her than going to workout by myself at the gym.
The quality of my life is dramatically better,
and I am healing from a shoulder injury and a knee issue.
She has taught me so much about my posture and the importance of exercise and diet.
She is so knowledgeable about the human body and her background as a physical therapist and other methods she uses, add to her approach to Pilates.
I highly recommend Katia!
After the first session I got to free locked emotions out,
I am feeling good, I worked parts that were dark inside of me and I didn't know.
Everything was great and keeps getting better each session.
I liked the experience very much.The work done was excellent. I felt that it worked in my emotional, helping me to reconnect with situations of my childhood, that helped me to link myself in the present.
Everything worked perfectly. All we talked about was super directed towards what I am going through now.
I liked very much.
It opened up many options for me to break through my blockages. It showed me some things I hadn’t noticed before.
I implemented two projects I was procrastinating right away.
It was excellent!
There are three things that have stuck in my mind since the first time I worked with Katia.
1. What a wonderfully informative and knowledgeable woman who helped me really feel the difference in the pilates system.
2. What a serene atmosphere she creates
3. What an incredible difference between that one-on-one work out experience and the meat grinder experience of a big gym. Make Mine Pilates.
I am a Professional Soccer Player from LA Galaxy.
I met Katia five months after my 4th knee surgery.
She made me work muscles I had never felt.
I recovered from the surgery, improved my overall strength, flexibility and balance.
I didn't know exactly what Pilates was, I thought it was for dancers and ballerinas, but today I recommend to all athletes of all sports.
Pilates is essential to an athlete career.

I can honestly say, I am a happier human being!
Since working with Katia, my life has transformed into the life I love and always wanted. I am kinder with myself, and my relationships and my work life continue improving…
I was in different traditional therapies for many years, but after working with Katia, I no longer feel the need to go back to those old-fashioned techniques.
I went initially for Pilates but our sessions include holistic techniques and coaching.
Before, I was constantly discussing the same old topics that I had on rotation. I always walked away with a feeling of sadness and the feeling of reaching and striving for something that never felt attainable.
Being Katia’s client, I feel like I am living the life I always wanted. What I learned from Katia is how to love me first and accept help.
I am not exactly sure how she does it. Her coaching technique is super unique.
And after each session, I feel uplifted.
I ask myself: is that worth it? The time and money?
The answer is always absolutely - Yes.
I was telling Katia about a recent work trip, and I said:
“It wasn’t’ that bad”. Katia asked:
“Did the work change or did you change?” I said, “I changed”.
Life is still evolving and changing around me; however, I am different.
I function with more joy and peace.
I see how Katia’s presence in my life has transformed me.
With each session I walk away with new insights into my life and new perspectives.
After one of my sessions, I wrote down: it’s like she performs surgery on my soul, she opens the wound and drains it to heal.
I continue to evolve and heal with each session.
After being in a bad car accident in 1998, I had been to more than twenty doctors and chiropractors in an attempt to reduce my back pain; it would improve to a certain degree, but eventually the pain would return. I was to the point that I could not stand for more than a couple of minutes before the pain was excruciating even with pain relievers and muscle relaxers. Once I started working with Katia, I knew I had hit the jackpot! After 1 month of two sessions a week, I have eliminated 3 muscle relaxers per day and feel stronger with less pain each week. She has allowed me to reduce my own pain by strengthening my muscles. Her knowledge of the human body and how to rehabilitate it is just phenomenal!
I've been coming to Katia for many years now. I have been suffering from back pain for over 15 years because of my scoliosis and Katia has been the only person able to relieve my pain. After many chiropractors, physical therapies, acupuncture and rolfing massage sessions, I would say coming here was the best thing for my back pain. Katia's stretches are very powerful and you will learn so much about your body you won't learn anywhere else... believe me, I've been to countless pain relief centers, vast majority of them don't do anything.
Katia is a very knowledgable instructor who knows much more than just pilates, she knows every muscle that causes pain, every joint that's connected to your problem areas. She knows the human body head to toe, inside and out and many other techniques in addition to that.
I highly recommend anyone who's looking for body pain relief to come here. You'll be in good hands.
