FG Graduate Training

GRADUATE COURSES 2019

THE FIX - 3rd Feb

The condensed version of everything with some added surprises. This is a super-charged class designed to get you fitter faster when you are high on motivation but low on time. A mix of Classic and FG, with a focus on arms, abs and stamina. Students familiar with Classic and FG classes only should be doing this class as a “top-up.” 

Key benefits: toned body, increased power and increased stamina.

DEEP CORE - 4-5th Feb

The deepest stretch out there. Suitable for beginners and advanced students alike, this is an alignment class, both motivating and relaxing. Floor-based, allowing us to drop any desire to “perform” and connect deeply with body and breath. Designed to realign postural issues and release stress, the slower pace allows time to work with injuries, learn correct alignment and work on flexibility. 

Key benefits: Deep hip opening, leg stretching, learning alignment, and developing flexibility.

IN - 6-7th Feb

A deep, slow class, based entirely on the floor.

This class is yoga physiotherapy, deeply correcting, aligning and releasing.

You will open your hips, spine, neck, shoulders and wrists carefully, deeply and softly. You will get flexible in slow holds, stronger in stationary core activators, passively and actively open tight areas with the help of props. You will go from active poses to gradually getting wound down, de-stressed and softened. We end with a long Yoga Nidra and guided meditation.

Retreat INward to re-connect, relax and restore your power and truth. Yin on steroids - IN.

WILD - 8th Feb

WILD is a new cardio-yoga class that bridges the gap between conventional gym workouts and yoga. WILD combines Kundalini Yoga, Barre, resistance stretching, HIIT and Super Slow training to strengthen and sculpt every inch of your body. Get strong and fit in this high energy, fast-paced class. 

Key benefits: builds stamina, core power and strength, along with yogic breathing to help oxygenate the entire body and purify and balance the nervous system. increases mobility and burns serious calories whilst sculpting every inch of your body


WORKING WITH INJURIES IN YOGA AND FITNESS CLASSES 

20 HOUR TEACHER TRAINING

Course Teacher: Michele Pernetta 

Course Location: HotHouse North 

Course Requirement: Certified Teachers from all backgrounds 

Dates: 6 - 8 June, 2019

This 20-hour Teacher Training, which takes place in June 2019, is for teachers from all yoga backgrounds eager to increase their knowledge and understanding of how to work with injured students and provide alternatives and modifications for safety and rehabilitation.

We have been teaching injury modifications to our teachers for 17 years, and in the four years we have been Fierce Grace studios we have been gradually increasing our team of experts, our syllabus and our Teacher Training programmes.

Most injury trainings are geared to the one-on-one private class setting, but today’s busy yoga studios are attracting more and more people with injures, and teachers need to have the tools and confidence to support those students effectively.

Universal Principles

We are proud to announce that we have developed one of the first in-depth certifications - based on scientifically proven findings - for certified yoga teachers to increase their knowledge of how teach tried and tested exercises to help the students with lower back, disc, sacroiliac, hamstring, psoas and knee problems, as well as how to modify yoga poses for injury in a class setting.

On this 20-hour course, you will understand and practice how to:

·       Work with common injuries including slipped disc, sacroiliac problems, hamstring injuries, psoas and hip issues and the three main types of knee injury

·       Use the latest sports medicine research on rehabilitation for specific injuries and conditions translated back into yoga postures

·       How to suggest modifications for the above as well as unspecified pain with no apparent “cause”, arthritis and generalised joint pain

·       Modifications for over 40 yoga asanas that span all yoga systems and principles for modifying all poses

·       Learn which common asana alignment errors can cause injury or wear and tear

·       Teach less widely known practices that are helpful for injured students, including yoga nidra, pranayama and meditation

·       Work with older students and athletes with injuries

·       Approach students dealing with grief or trauma.
