New Reformers and more Konnector Kits for Seymour Street


We have transformed the Seymour Street studio with brand new wood framed “Clinical” reformers which are a higher model, so are easiest for people with injuries or physical conditions (as well as for our super-fit clients!).

Several reformers are fitted with the Konnector kit, allowing you to move arms and legs at the same time or independently in different directions to help the disassociation of movements. The Studio looks fantastic with a new layout which facilitates access to the equipment, including the Guillotine which has proved extremely popular (despite some initial misgivings about the name!) since its introduction. Our Canary Wharf Studio has also had a facelift as all the Reformers have been re-upholstered.

AHP-Trained Pilates Teachers Graduate


Twelve newly qualified Pilates teachers graduated this month after successfully completing the Alan Herdman Pilates Teacher Training Programme. The programme is internationally respected – this year’s intake included students from China, Vietnam, Israel and Korea – and AHP-trained teachers work all over the world, recently in Australia, Switzerland, USA, Denmark, Canada and Greece as well as the UK.

AHP Studio Manager Mauro Ossola says “Alan’s Teacher Training is acknowledged as the best in the UK, and probably in Europe. Our graduates are highly sought after – many studios only want to work with Alan’s students – so the course will ensure excellent career progression.” The next teacher Training Programme starts in September – just two places remain.
