My Movement Journey

Welcome!

I'm so happy you're here!

I’m Heather Corey – a land-locked, ocean-loving  Barre & Pilates instructor. When I’m not teaching, you can find me working with service dogs in training, sipping tea, and dreaming of the ocean – all while working on ways to share my passion for movement with the world!

I am a former dancer and "bendy body" and in 2021, after a lifetime of chronic pain and injuries, I was diagnosed with a rare connective tissue disorder called Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome.  I have since learned that enduring exercise that is painful for the sake of "no pain, no gain" isn't good for any body.  

I believe movement should be uplifting, empowering and most of all - it should feel good - not just today but for years to come!

Teaching the methods of Pilates, Barre, Balletone, Dynamic Stretching and Recovery Movement, my goal is connecting with others while building a lifetime of movement and maintaining their physical and mental health no matter what obstacles came their way.

I  began my fitness teaching career as a certified yoga instructor. I then became a Certified Level 4 Essentrics® Instructor after finding the method after a dance injury. I then went on to be an Essentrics® Master Trainer, the first in the United States, to help train other instructors.

I have since trained and certified in Barre, Mat Pilates, progressive Ballet Technique and Balletone.

As a former dancer, I grateful to have more than 20 years in movement and fitness. I have taught classes and workshops to dancers, athletes, fitness professionals and people who want to stay fit, move and have fun.

Barre Flow is a fusion of ballet-inspired movements & Pilates, set to a fun and motivating soundtrack. No dance experience or special equipment needed. Modify the movements to suit your own body, and remember, every step is a step toward a healthier and happier you.

Pilates - Pilates is a method of exercise that consists of low-impact flexibility and muscular strength movements. The technique emphasizes proper postural alignment, core strength and muscular balance. I take a contemporary approach to Pilates, bringing more flow into the movements so that you experience the perfect mix of strength, balance, mobility and flexibility. 
This class takes place on the mat. Props (such as a Pilates ball and light weights) are always be optional, not required. 
These classes are designed for all levels and are designed to build strength, improve flexibility, reduce stress, relieve tension, and so much more.

Human Reformer - The Human Reformer class enables you to harness the potential of your own body as a human reformer, unlocking a new level of strength and flexibility. Resistance bands and small props will allow you to recreate traditional Pilates reformer exercises, tailoring them to your unique fitness goals and capabilities.


Essentrics® - The name “Essentrics” is based on a technique known as eccentric movement that strengthens muscles and frees up movement. This is a unique, challenging program where the benefits extend out to other movement practices and sports and makes everyday living easier by improving range of motion and posture, increasing flexibility and rebalancing the muscles in the body. (Essentrics classes cannot be recorded)

Why The Flamingo?

The flamingo represents balance, grace and strength.

The flamingo has an elegant, graceful appearance that belies its strength. The flamingo also represents community.  Did you know a group of flamingos is called a Flamboyance?  Isn't that fabulous? 

Here at HCF we are a fabulous flamboyance of strong, balanced and graceful flamingos!

Let's move together!
