Co-Owner, General Manager, Rotational Instructor
My name is Shyla, and pole fitness has given me more than I ever would have thought possible. I’ve been an athlete my entire life, but after graduating college I felt a deep sense of loss without the community and purpose of a sports team. I discovered pole dance through a search of alternative fitness options near me, and I began my journey of recreation.
Pole fitness helped me to build an identity of strength, confidence, and sensuality – everything that I’d always aspired to have but didn’t know how to embody as a plus-size woman. Through pole, I’ve made some of my greatest friends, learned how to embrace my sexuality, built the confidence to compete on a national level, and empowered myself to start High Priestess and share the pole fitness journey with the world.
