Alan Herdman joins Kristi Cooper for a wonderful discussion about his life in Pilates. He talks about how he became interested in dance which led him to study Pilates in New York with Bob Fitzgerald and Carola Trier and then open the first Pilates studio in London. Alan has taught so many great teachers, including PA instructors Julian Littleford, Michael King, Cathleen Murakami, and more, and he shares his experiences with them in his studio. It was such a treat to have Alan at our studio. We hope you enjoy this interesting discusison!

Kristi: thank you once again for bringing these very important teachers in, so that we have a much fuller understanding of this world we call Pilates. I think that this information is so important to the community as a whole, so we can be more unified in the future.

I love how Alan says it is not about the technique, but about the individual. Working for the person.
