The studio founder and primary instructor is Tomi Kay Jones. After an exhaustive search for the discipline she felt had the most to offer, she discovered Ron Fletcher and Fletcher Pilates. Not only was Ron an actual pupil of Joseph Pilates, he also shares the same respect for Pilates as both a fitness regimen and an art form. Ron observed a commitment to the fundamentals of Pilates that she found nowhere else.
Tomi Kay began formal Pilates training in Tucson in 2000. After completing levels I and II in the Fletcher Program of Study, she opened her first studio in Old Town Scottsdale. Soon after she was awarded the prestigious title of Fletcher Program Facilitator, making her the first Program Facilitator ever in the Phoenix area. (http://fletcherpilates.com/fletchteacher7.php)
