About Heidi MacEwen
Heidi MacEwen is a certified Group Exercise Instructor through the Aerobics and Fitness Associates of America (AFAA) since June 8, 2008 . Prior to opening Pilates Flex & Fusion Fitness Studio she taught classes at Gold’s Gym in Chicopee, MA from 2008 to June 2012. She is a certified BODYPUMP instructor. In addition to BODYPUMP Heidi also taught a FusionFLOW class at Gold’s. This class was best described as a mind/body fitness workout that blends standing Pilates, ballet, Yoga, calisthenics, control movements that focuses on breath, balance, strength and posture to elongate muscles and burn calories.
In furthering her learning of the Fusion style classes Heidi has attended several workshops with PowderBlue Productions to include PiYO Instructor Training in May 2009 and also completed the PiYo Strength Instructor training in March 2012.
Heidi is also a certified instructor for the Balletone Sole Synthesis program. She initially attended the Sole Synthesis Instructor training in July 2010 and again in Feb. 2012 where she earned her Master Balletone Ambassador (MBA) status as a Sole Synthesis Instructor. She also attended the Standing Flow Instructor training in February 2011 and again most recently in April 2013, also earning the MBA in the Balletone Standing Flow format .
Heidi is also currently enrolled in the Yoga Teacher Training program at Mama Nirvana’s for the 2013/2014 term and is excited to begin her practicum teaching at the studio this Fall.
Finally, Heidi was a student of Gayle Stefanelli of Stretch Yoga Center (the former owner of the studio) since they met in April 2008, primarily taking her Pilates classes. When time allowed she also enjoyed Gayle’s yoga classes. Heidi will miss her mentor greatly but is very thankful for the opportunity to continue on with her studio and teachings and the hopes that you may enjoy her Pilates, Total Body workout classes, new Fusion style class offerings as well her Yoga, too.
