Heather Thomas Shalabi
Always a movement enthusiast, Heather Thomas Shalabi has taught Pilates for more than 17 years. Her recognition of Pilates’ benefits, and passion for the discipline led her to embark on intensive training, completing her full Studio certification through Polestar in 2002, Traditional Pilates through 360° Pilates Benjamin Degenhardt in 2016, and Classical Pilates with Alycea Ungaro’s REAL Pilates in 2018. In 2005, Heather opened Flex Studio in Hong Kong, which has steadily become the City’s premiere fitness destination, and Classical Pilates Teacher Training Centre. She is dedicated to training Apprentices in the Classical Method, adhering to rigorous technique and respect for the original Method. Heather also leads annual retreats in Asia, and regularly leads workshops to empower people to take control of their physical well-being. Her interest in movement and the body stems from 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.
