Heather Happel was introduced to Pilates though Mat work, and loved the initial challenge it posed in her body. She stayed committed because of the changes she felt happening to her posture, strength, body composition, and balance. She became certified by PhysicalMind Institute to teach classical Pilates in 2007. Heather has a passion for anatomy, movement, figuring out correctable problems, and helping people find their strengths: Often returning them to activities they thought were no longer possible. She has clients ranging in age from 14 to 89; golfers, athletes of all levels, deconditioned populations, and the weekend warriors.
Heather has continued her education with certificates in Anatomy in Clay; Demi-Barre certification; Power Plate certification; Multiple conferences on movement and pain reduction; and Pelvic Floor workshops.She has also studied Reiki, and is interested in all things energy. Most recently she has completed the Master Trainer program with the Pilates Sports Center in Los Angeles. She is looking forward to continuing the work of Joseph Pilates and sharing it with the next generation of teachers.
