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 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 Emily has always had a passion for dance. She practiced ballet, tap, jazz, and hip-hop for 7 years, and was a cheerleader in high school. After graduation, she stumbled upon Buti Yoga. From the first class, she knew this what was she wanted to do. After practicing for 4 months, she decided to take the leap to get certified. She spent the next year traveling and training with some of the most amazing master trainers and just meeting new people. She is now an Advanced Buti Yoga instructor with her 200 Hour RYT (and many other Buti fitness formats). “I love what I do. I love to see people’s bodies transform, their mindsets transform. You get to see something as an instructor that is just beautiful. People come to realize their self worth, beauty, and strength, and THAT is why I love what I do.”
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!
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 Keeley began her pole dancing journey in January of 2012, and was immediately hooked! Through this amazing form of fitness, she has gained strength, increased her fitness, and met some of the most amazing people in an overwhelmingly supportive community. However, the most significant aspect that she has gained from pole, is feeling comfortable in her own skin, reclaiming her sexuality, and not being ashamed of how pole makes her feel. For her, pole has been a form of empowerment. Pole has helped her embrace her body, and not be ashamed of feeling sexy. She hopes to encourage women, and men, of all shapes and sizes to try pole dancing. Pole can be whatever you want it to be: you can embrace the sexy side, or go another direction and make it modern, more athletic, more "fill-in-the-blank." She is thankful to have found pole fitness and is looking forward to her journey as an instructor at Inner Diva Studios.
