Heather Thomas
Pilates Guru, Founder of Flex Studio Hong Kong & Singapore

Always a movement enthusiast, Heather Thomas has been teaching Pilates for over two decades. Her recognition of Pilates’ benefits and passion for the discipline led her to embark on intensive training, completing her full Studio certification in 2002. She later studied traditional Pilates through Benjamin Degenhardt’s 360° Pilates in 2016, and received 3rd Generation Classical Pilates certification with Alycea Ungaro’s REAL Pilates in 2018. Heather is a Lead Educator for REAL Pilates, and conducts multiple trainings in Hong Kong and Singapore each year.

Heather opened Hong Kong’s Flex Studio in 2005, and Flex Studio Singapore in 2023. The studios have become the cities’ premiere fitness destinations and Classical Pilates Teacher Training Centres. Heather also leads annual retreats in Asia, and 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.

Heather has a strong business background, with degrees from Johns Hopkins University and Columbia Business School, as well as extensive marketing experience with the Walt Disney Company.

She has designed and overseen the buildout of eight Pilates studios in Hong Kong and Singapore; her decades in the Pilates industry have led to an extensive network of connections, global resources and a firm belief in the endless possibilities Pilates offers.

“The body WANTS to do the right thing… 99% of the time we fail to give it an operating platform on which to improve. All it takes is the slightest nudge in the right direction to see profound neuromuscular change with just a few reps of an exercise. That’s the incredible honour we have to live in our bodies… we can abuse it for years, yet it will robustly adapt to positive change in order to return to the amazing miracle that is the human physique. Pilates is the embodiment of this potential.” — Heather Thomas, Founder of Flex Studio
