Alan Herdman Pilates Studio
Train with the Father of British Pilates, Alan Herdman, in the gorgeous Victory Services Club.
A former dancer and teacher with the London School of Contemporary Dance, Herdman set up Britain’s first Pilates studio in 1970 after being trained by partners in the Joseph Pilates school in New York City. He continues to be one of the key figures in the development of the discipline sitting the Chair of Pilates Method Alliance UK Chapter, lecturing on Pilates around the world, as well as penning several successful books, including The Pilates Directory (2004), The Gaia Busy Person’s Guide to Pilates (2003), Pilates for Men (2007) and The Complete Pilates Tutor (2014). As well as running his own studios, such as his Central London location on Seymour Street, he and his assistants teach in dance schools and designated Pilates studios internationally.
Classes are available Monday to Sunday with two options: 4-2-1 Sessions (studio sessions), individually taught sessions where the instructor works with up to four people at a time, or 1-2-1 Sessions, individually taught classes where the instructor works with only one client. These are not private as other instructors may be teaching at the same time.
The studio also offers physiotherapy and osteopathy with long-term colleagues of Alan Herdman, Physiotherapist Shirley Hancock M.C.S.P. S.R.P. O.N.C. and Osteopath Barbara Sherringham
