Making fitness fun, safe, and accessible to all is the motto of Diva Kim, Certified Personal Trainer and Fitness Instructor since 2005. She has several years of experience in personal training, instructing fitness classes and boot camps throughout the Austin area. Having a variety of different mediums to work with is what prompted her to seek out certifications in not only personal training, but yoga, Pilates, nutrition and hoop dancing.
Diva Shiloh strives to create a fun, safe environment for athletes of all levels. She has a passion for pole and yoga that has propelled her to heights she could have never imagined.
Diva Jessica's training began at Inner Diva in Diva Kim's Hula Hoop class. She quickly fell in love with the studio. Once she tried pole, she quickly progressed with the practice. As her love of pole fitness grew, so did her desire to learn and share her passion. She became certified in pole fitness and hope the she can help others to learn and grow in their pole journey.
Diva Courtney is pole certified as well as a personal trainer through the National Academy of Sports Medicine. Her certifications include personal training, corrective exercise, behavior change and nutrition. She is excited to be taking on Pole Levels 1 & 2. She believes in getting back to the basics- good music, good friends and flowing!
Sami has been dancing on and off in various styles since she was 4yrs old but didn't find a consistent flow and community until joining Inner Diva Studios in 2010. Under Kim's guidance Hoop dance became her gateway back into flow. Since then she has completed certifications in Fitness Hoop Dance® , AFAA group fitness and Discoveries Pole Dance. In 2014 she began training in, and in 2016 started teaching, acroyoga/partner acrobatics and acro dance. She went on to complete the Nimble Arts Intro to Aerials Teacher Training in 2015 after a few years of aerial training as well. She has a flare for flow and love for dance that crosses all disciplines. Simply put, she loves to dance and has a passion to help others find their movement.
Diva Jessica is our resident vixen! If you are looking for a powerful workout that is a ton of fun, look no further than Vixen Dance!
Diva Miranda grew up a military brat, but calls Texas home. Her love of dance started at the age of 10 and she began training in various forms of dance and gymnastics. In March of 2012, she became a Zumba® instructor which led to a passion for group fitness. Miranda then became a certified BUTI Yoga instructor in August 2012. This format was a game changer for her and inspired her to devote more time to a consistent yoga practice, eventually becoming a 200 hour registered yoga teacher through Yoga Alliance and is taking her knowledge further by currently working on her 500 hour certification. With her day time job being a demanding leadership position in the software industry, you'll find that Miranda's classes are full of fun and laughter for all ages and levels & where all judgement is left at the door. And never underestimate the chance that you'll see her alongside you in another class - she loves learning and brining fresh flows to her classes.

Diva Nicole has been involved in the performing arts since Kindergarten. She grew up in music (primarily vocals, but some instrumental) and developed a love for theatre, even writing her own award-winning skit at age 10. In high school she discovered and fell head-over-heels for Belly Dance, which she took up when she was 19 and has been performing professionally and teaching ever since. In 2011, Nicole tried her first Zumba class and became a Licensed Zumba Fitness Instructor not long after. She was always drawn to Reggaeton music, but never realized how much she loved Latin music and dance until becoming licensed, and has been teaching it passionately for almost 8 years. In 2016 Nicole ventured into the world of Burlesque. Without any training whatsoever she naturally took to the art form, stunning audiences and even winning first place in a competition she didn’t know she was competing in! Come to Inner Diva Studios and let Nicole help you access YOUR Inner Diva by learning grace, rhythm, coordination, self-love and confidence in her Burlesque workshops and weekly Zumba Fitness classes!
