I have been thinking about pole fitness for more than 10 years and i did one intro and it changed my life. Class was fun and my instructor was super kinda and encouraging. all they ladies in the class were super welcoming it just felt like i have been going to studio for year or I grew up with them or something like that. Shayvard took the time to learn my name and become my cheerleader in class. now i am home obsessed with poles lol. I I literally cant think about anything else i just wanna go back to class and be in that moment and i so excited for this journey .
I discovered pole in 2008 and have been teaching for over 7 years, specializing in all levels of pole and flexibility. I am a former ballerina and competitive synchronized swimmer, which led to my devotion to technique and my drive as a coach and instructor. I love that pole keeps me challenged, and I’d love to help you challenge yourself.
I have over 12 years experience in pole fitness, with over 10 years competing at the national level in sport, art and doubles events. In 2019, I competed at the POSA World Championship in Finland. In addition to my competitive experience, I am constantly updating my knowledge as I want to be the best instructor and coach that I can. I have certifications with Ecole Nationale de Cirque, as a Platinum Level Coach with CPSAF, and at the highest level (Level 5) with Alixia Flexibility.
While I have grown up in the Ottawa valley, my life's motto is “Follow your feet” - I love to travel & train all over the world (including Australia, Prague and Austria!). I am an outdoorsy person and I love hiking, camping, and canoeing, often with my dog.
