Heather Thomas Shalabi has been teaching Pilates for more than 15 years. Her recognition of the benefits of Pilates, and passion for the discipline led her to embark on intensive training, completing her full Studio certification through Polestar, and Traditional Pilates through 360° Pilates. Heather has since steadily grown Flex Studio since its inception in 2005 to become one of Hong Kong’s premiere fitness destinations. She also leads annual fitness retreats in Asia, and regularly hosts workshops to empower people to take control of their physical well-being. Heather’s interest in movement and the body stems from her decade-long training in classical ballet as a young girl, and subsequent daily yoga practice whilst living in New York City in the 1990’s. Heather is currently undergoing the 3rd Generation Classical Pilates certification with Alycea Ungaro’s Real Pilates based in New York City.
