Founded in 1985 by Heather and Martin Sampson and offers the highest quality in Pilates tuition. Clients can use our facilities to become fit, develop new skills and maintain their overall well-being or to rehabilitate from injuries.











Heather previously was award winning classical ballet, modern jazz and tap dancer, trained in the Pilates method with Gordon Thomson at the Urdang Academy and later became the principal instructor at the Pineapple Studios, London. Combining her knowledge of Pilates, acrobatics, gymnastics and ballet, with Martin she opened one of the first Pilates studios in London.

Sampson Pilates has since developed a tradition of expertise in the field of rehabilitation and also provided training and qualifications for teachers from all over the world. Our learning tradition, combined with continuous research and critical openness to new developments, has gained the studio a considerable reputation.

In 2006 Sampson Pilates moved from its London studio to Holkham Norfolk and continues to provide classes for students of all ages.
