KEEP EXPANDING

Our Graduate Courses are designed to open up a world of possibility for Fierce Grace teachers and give them an enormous advantage.

Completing our Level 1 - 200 or 250-hour Yoga Teacher Training Course means you have the opportunity to grow into a wide reaching repertoire of class offerings and a deep knowledge of yoga in its many forms and expressions. Our Graduate Courses offer you the opportunity to expand your knowledge and learn different types of class within your first years of teaching, something that normally takes many years for a teacher to develop.

See below for an overview of our unique, accelerated and transformative training modules for FG Graduates, as well as upcoming course dates.

"It took me about 15 years teaching to feel I had the knowledge required to sequence, offer variations and options within my classes. I wanted to be able to afford Fierce Grace teachers a safe, tried and tested class offering, that would allow them to teach their students in this wide and varied way without the many years of study it took me to be able to offer this. My Training System gives teachers a decade head start in being able to offer a variety of different, safe, popular classes." - Michele Pernetta, Fierce Grace founder and Teacher Training Programme Leader

FIERCE GRACE GRADUATE TRAINING COURSES

S.O.B. (Stiff, Old or Broken)

Injury modification and rehabilitation class Stiff, Old or Broken incorporates the rehabilitation and modification course wisdom into a user-friendly and easily accessible class for injured students. The class provides a safe framework that allows you to work with a variety of knee, back, sacroiliac, shoulder, wrist and hamstring injuries safely, with confidence and through a series of poses that still challenges even an injured athlete while being safe enough for a novice or unfit person. It favours stabilisation and strengthening, while teaching correct alignment and leaves space for questions and tailored adjustments.

The class is suitable for beginners and advanced alike, who wish to work on alignment, postural integrity and address the causes of their injury or pain. It is very popular with beginners wishing to gain a solid understanding of yoga alignment and learn foundation poses at a slightly slower pace with more interaction with a senior instructor.

FG2 

This one day course will teach you how to move your students into FG2, an evolution of the popular Fierce Grace class, giving an alchemical mix of structure and freedom. It normally takes a yoga teacher about ten years or more to be able to alter a class each week, varying, moving into different areas and keeping students surprised, while adhering to classical sequencing and safety protocols. Michele has developed a framework for teachers in FG2 to be able to vary classes within the first few years of teaching. This class brings the teacher the capacity to bring variety to students and have a set of interchangeable sequences at their fingertips.

Prerequisite for the Advanced Fierce (Beast) training.

WILD 

WILD addresses a common imbalance in yoga practitioners and targets muscle and therefore joint stability. Yoga has a reputation for being about stretching, but we need to balance flexibility with strength if we are to stay healthy. Being too flexible is an imbalance and WILD addresses this imbalance, while challenging even the strongest student.

Learn this unique class which is the modern blend of yoga and strength training. Discover aspects of Kundalini yoga, pranayama, ballet conditioning, resistance stretching, HIIT timing for stamina and the incredible power of “Slow” strength training as well the strength building poses of yoga. Discover how constant movement allows the body to make micro adjustments and increase flexibility safely and effectively. Learn the “fire breath” to oxygenate the body and cleanse the nervous system.

Wild develops strong lean muscle, without wearing out the joints as many cardio vascular practises do and shines a light on often neglected areas such as lower abdominals, hip flexors, triceps, pecs, lats, calves and glutes.

DEEP CORE

Deep Core is one of FG’s premier classes and is the core of a yoga practice - it teaches sensitivity, awareness and alignment as a foundation for every type of class and a lifetime of safe practice. You will learn how to guide your student's awareness deeper within and teach them ego-less practice. You will gain tools for taking people deeper both physically and mentally.

Discover the “True Core” of the body and how it relates to almost every asana. Learn to teach and modify deep hip-openers, safe deep releases, core yoga alignment, Yin poses, as well as breath and relaxation to all levels and body types. Discover how to assist your students to make deep lasting changes by affecting their pelvis and lower back safely.

Poses are stripped back to their simpler forms in order to crate the space for students to understand their own alignment issues and problem areas.

This is not “yin” yoga, but with an inward turning accent we explore deep powerful hip openers, leg stretches, lower back and pelvis alignment as well as utilising yin style holds and a unique form of relaxation.
