Gordon Thomson trained in Pilates twenty-one years ago at 'The Place' in London, after having studied dance with the Ballet Rambert and the London Contemporary Dance Theatre and being an actor dancer with several companies. He was trained by Alan Herdman, who brought the technique to England from America. Gordon set up his first Body Control Pilates studio in 1981 and is now firmly established as a leading figure in this discipline. He has trained teachers who are now based as far afield as the USA, Australia and New Zealand. Gordon is currently Director of the Body Control & Rehabilitation Studio in London and, also, of the Body Control Pilates Association (previously the Association of Pilates Teachers).
