Naz A

One fine cold winter morning while walking down Yonge Street I stepped into an alternative universe. In this universe sun was shining and working out was fun! “Gym” was not a smelly, tedious and often intimidating place; people of this world were happy, friendly, encouraging, non-judgmental and they came in all shapes and sizes. Sounds like an alternate universe isn’t it? Well it wasn’t, it was just my intro to Aerial Yoga among many other things, including lyra, silks, yin yoga, Pilates and pole fitness. I dove into the aerial arts like fish to water and have never surfaced since.
In other words, I started Aerial yoga 3 years ago at Brass Vixens, felt I found my calling, became certified instructor and started teaching aerial yoga and flexibility. Come join me won't you?

Di Ana

Diana’s love for pole dancing began several years ago, after she attended her first pole teaser class. Since then, pole dancing has become one of her passions and it has been impossible for her to stay away! Constantly working to improve her skills, she has trained with international pole stars and continues to expand her aerial repertoire, exploring different apparatus such as silks. Through pole dancing, she has gained tremendous strength, flexibility, confidence and an extremely supportive pole family. In addition to pole, Diana also enjoys hot yoga and swimming. Diana has been a pole instructor for over 3 years and having recently joined the Brass Vixens team, teaches pole and flexibility classes at the Vaughan studio. She loves supporting and encouraging students to develop their strength and confidence in reaching their fitness goals.
