Katya Middlebrook

When Katya is not teaching pole classes at Vertical Vixen you can find her doing handstands or running her gym (of which she is the co-owner of). She is a qualified personal trainer and classifies herself as the biggest nerd and a lover of everything animals!

Kat discovered pole dancing in 2015 and was hooked after her first week! Helping people to grow, learn, find themselves and find their strength through physical activity is one of her greatest loves in life.

Katya has performed at every Vertical Vixen showcase since she began as well as Pole Unity.

Recently Kat has fallen in love with competing in pole competitions! So far she has taken part in APAC, Pole Theatre, Gauteng Pole Sport Provincials and SA National Pole Sports. Competing has definitely had a huge impact on her as an athlete and she has many plans to continue in the future!
