Czarina M

I was introduced to pole from Karusia, a wonderful dancer and yoga instructor in 2007 and you could say I have had an addiction ever since! As a certified Yoga instructor, I began teaching yoga classes and the Coreflow Yoga at Brass Vixens and it seemed like a natural progression to take my passion to the next level and become a pole instructor. I love the similarities with movement but the stark differences keep me pursuing both for the physical and mental benefits. You can always find me at Brass Vixens jamming with my fellow vixens.

Lady Kori

Born and raised in Montreal, Quebec, Kori received a multidisciplinary education in the arts including formal training in theatre, Classical and Jazz Ballet, West African, Modern and Contemporary dance.

Kori believes her years of training and professional performance experience in theatre and dance can inspire students to connect with their inner vixens and give expression to an authentic sensuality in a playful, inclusive and celebratory environment.

Seija C

Seija has been dancing all of her life. Growing up performing, competing and coaching Rhythmic and Aesthetic Group Gymnastics was a central focus of her life for over 20 years. The absence of Gym life left a void she was not sure could be filled. Then she walked into Brass Vixens. 
 
After picking up some extra hours helping out at Queen West in the Fall of 2013, she started to take class. Inspired by the the Vixens she met in the studio, she pursued further training and became an instructor herself. The only thing she loves more than Vixen life, are the Vixens themselves!
