Meet Taja Ashaka

Today we’d like to introduce you to Taja Ashaka.

Taja, let’s start with your story. We’d love to hear how you got started and how the journey has been so far.
In November 2017, the name Vixen Academy was birthed to create an environment where women can get in touch with their inner Goddess and learn “Exotic Fitness.” Exotic fitness is a fitness class where you can learn pole, twerk or any other style of dance that can be considered sexy and turned into fitness.

Vixen Academy was a mobile studio and within a month we acquired a physical location. At the Original Vixen Academy, we focused on pole, twerk and pole parties however, due to unforeseen circumstances Vixen Academy had to close down for a year. During that year, we catered to being mobile again, offering our services in-home to our clients.

April 15, 2019, Vixen Academy was rebirthed with an even bigger mission and purpose than before.

“Stripping Away Insecurities, Stepping Into Confidence.”

With this rebrand, we have collaborated with some like-minded woman who is eager to help our clients reach their ultimate goal and find their inner Vixen. We are all about Women Empowerment. We still cater to teaching pole dance and hosting pole parties, but now we have an in-house nutritionist, Nina-Fitlifestye, who caters to your internal Vixen through meal prep and eating habits. Nina is also our in-house personal trainer who hosts our “Snatchiana Fitness Bootcamps”. Yes, you read that right. We’re snatching waist. We also have a few phenomenal pole instructors (Lola and Star along with myself) who teach you to get Intune with your inner Vixen through pole fitness. We offer monthly series classes that take you to another level of sensuality like our chair dance or heels series. We even bring in male models.

We’ve teamed up with great organizations and talked to broken, battered, and abused mentally and physically women on how to gain their confidence back. Women who have beat cancer, we celebrate those who fought, fighting or angels who need to be remembered.

Vixen Academy stands for everything Woman and is a sorority of bringing out that Queen within.

Has it been a smooth road?
It has not been a smooth rode at all. We’ve dealt with a lot of wolf in sheep clothing that swore they were for Vixen Academy and in reality, they were only for self. At the end of the day, what is for the Academy will manifest and our gift and love for what we do, will not be a shield.

So, as you know, we’re impressed with Vixen Academy – tell our readers more, for example, what you’re most proud of and what sets you apart from others.
What sets us apart is that not only do we teach you dance, and cater to your nutrition. We hold classes that help women build their credit, learn about how to start a business and really elevate these women to another level. This is a real-life Academy.

Let’s touch on your thoughts about our city – what do you like the most and least?
I love the diversity of Houston. If you can think of it, 9 out of 10 we have it!

Who doesn’t hate the traffic, lol.
