About Alan Herdman

Primary Teacher Training: Alan Herdman Pilates

Distinguished instructor Alan Herdman has been teaching Pilates in the United Kingdom for over 30 years. He opened Britain's first-ever Pilates studio in 1970.

Alan Herdman studied at the London School of Contemporary Dance and was working as a teacher and dancer when, in the late 1960s, he was invited to New York to learn about the Joseph Pilates Method. There he worked intensively with Carola Trier and Bob Fitzgerald, two instructors who had been trained by Pilates himself. Although well-regarded amongst New York's dance fraternity, Pilates was unknown in the United Kingdom at that time. Alan returned in 1970 to set up his Pilates studio. Among his first clients were actors, dancers, and singers, but word soon spread as doctors and physiotherapists began recommending Pilates to patients struggling with chronic injuries.

At Alan Herdman Pilates, he runs a training course for Pilates instructors and, as well as running his own studios, he and his assistants teach in dance schools and designated Pilates studios internationally. He also lectures on Pilates around the world, including Balanced Body: Pilates on Tour and he has written several successful books, including The Pilates Directory (2004), The Gaia Busy Person's Guide to Pilates (2003) and Pilates: Creating the Body You Want (1999). He is also a mentor in Balanced Body's Passing the Torch program.
