Established in 1984.
It all started in her sunny Mediterranean hometown, Javea, in the Valencia region of Spain, as a teenager wanting to practice her English in the summer months when school was out, with British, Dutch, and German senior citizens retired there. Since they didn't know Spanish, they asked her to teach them Spanish in exchange for their help with her English. By midsummer she had a waiting list of students, including tourists, willing to pay to learn Spanish with her. They were finally enjoying being able to communicate with the locals! And that's how Toni Ferrer Studio was born.
She's also a certified Gyrotonic, Gyrokinesis, Pilates Mat, and Laughter Yoga teacher, which sometimes becomes part of the lesson.
And, in the near future, she hopes to go skydiving, just for fun.
