HEATHER THOMPSON was raised in League City, Texas and was very active in performing arts. She completed her Bachelors of Arts degree at California State University and it was there that she was introduced to Pilates. Upon graduation, she flew to New York and trained with one of the original elders, Romana Kryzanowska and received her teaching certification in 2000.
What started as a great job to support her performing career, turned into a great passion. Heather loves the human body and is fascinated with what it can do. She has studied with many teachers and techniques and loves the challenge every body brings to her. In 2008, she received her training in Active Isolated Stretching (AIS). This technique increases range of motion, improves athletic performance, and decreases risk of injury. It is a great complement to Pilates and she uses both techniques to help people of all walks of life feel great.
When Heather is not teaching, she enjoys the sunny outdoors running, hiking, and biking with her husband and two boys.
