Christina started pole during university as a creative way to build strength and flexibility. It only took one class to know she was hooked forever!

She is known as an energizer bunny to her students, and you better believe she’ll make you work hard in class! She loves watching progression in her students and seeing their confidence grow, and she will be just as excited for her students as they are when they nail a pole move!
