Judy Herbert

Pilates, Gyrokinesis, and Gyrotonics Associate

Judy began studying Pilates with Alan Herdman (UK founder of the method) whilst a student at the London Contemporary Dance School. 


During her dance career, she continued training at Alan’s Studio and also that of Hanna Gordon (founder of Pilates Foundation). After her apprenticeship to Gordon Thomson (co-founder of the BCP Company), she became a full-time teacher in his South Kensington Studio. Simultaneously she was invited to join the BCP Teacher Training team, responsible for Mat and machine courses at all levels. Continuing the dancer’s ethos of ongoing study and training, Judy began investigating the Gyrotonic method, which resulted in her becoming a certified Gyrotonic / Gyrokinesis teacher and Gyrotonic Pre-Trainer. 


Recent years have seen her living and working in Barcelona and Argentina. She ran her own practice and was invited to teach Master classes for “Movimiento Pilates” (Gabriella Solini) in Madrid and Valencia and at the studio of Gabriella Morales in Rosario (Argentina). She was invited to teach Gyrokinesis on a regular basis at the Gelabert / Azzopardi Company, Spain’s leading contemporary dance company.


Once again living in the UK, Judy divides her time between her bases in London and Warwickshire, teaching Gyrotonic, Gyrokinesis, and Pilates – Mat and machine.
