The Fletcher Pilates Program of Study Achieves PSAP Approval Status
TUCSON, Arizona, (Jan. 3, 2018) - After completing the vigorous Pilates School Approval Program
(PSAP) application, Fletcher Pilates®, Inc. is now the only PSAP approved school in the state of
Arizona, one of only four such programs in the nation. The Pilates School Approval Program was
developed by the nationally accredited Pilates Method Alliance (PMA) to recognize schools that have
successfully proved their compliance with Educational Standards set forth by the PMA.
“Receiving this distinction is a tremendous honor as it represents decades of dedication to providing
the highest level of Pilates Teacher education. Up to this point, Pilates schools have not had national
standards or regulation. We are proud to be the first recognized school in Arizona and one of the first
in the country to receive this approval,” said Kyria Sabin Waugaman, Program Director and Owner of
Body Works studio.
In 2005, The Fletcher Pilates® School achieved it’s status as the first Pilates teacher training program
to be formally recognized as an Arizona school by the State Board of Post-Secondary Education and
has been licensed ever since. Fletcher Pilates maintains the highest possible standards, leading the
Pilates industry and guaranteeing quality Pilates Teacher education.
