Katya discovered pole dancing in 2015 and was hooked after her first week! Kat is also qualified personal trainer, for 7 years. Helping people grow and find self love through physical activity is her passion.

When Katya is not teaching pole classes at Vertical Vixen you can find her preparing for pole competitions or getting stuck into one of her many hobbies (“I’m really just a big nerd!” she says)
Kat has competed and placed in both solo and duet pole competitions many times over the past 2 years. Most recent achievements would be placing 3rd place at Pole Art South Africa with her wonderful doubles partner and being crowned 1st in Professional Classique at the Acro Pole Art Classic 2019.

“To exist is to change, creating ones self endlessly”
