Anastasia Skukhtorova was born in Moscow, Russia. She began pole dancing at Moscow School in December of 2008 when she was only 18 years old. The first exposure Anastasia had of pole dance as art and sport was watching videos of her pole idols, Jenyne Butterfly and Felix Cane. They were a huge inspiration for her - and what a joy and delight it is to now have this amazing Russian talent sharing the same teaching platform with Jenyne, Felix and other world class artists at PoleandAerial.com.
In the beginning, Anastasia, trained 3 days a week for about 6-7 hours. After a couple months, her instructors suggested she become an instructor and she accordingly increased her training and began paying close attention to detail to choreography, mastering pole foundational movements, and stretching to increase her flexibility. Her back flexibility is natural, contortion quality, and while the rest of her body is also very flexible, Anastasia had to work hard to increase her flexibility to master the many movements for which she is well known. She shares many of her tips, tricks and training methods for flexibility on PoleandAerial.com and she is excited for you to train with her.
All of Anastasia's attention to detail and hard training has paid off. She now trains others all around the globe, has won numerous championships, including a coveted World Champion title in 2013.
