WILD Workout


"Forget meditation and zen, could this be the most hardcore exercise class in town? If you’re a hot yoga fan, then you’ll know how addictive it is.  So what if I were to tell you that there is a new exercise class built on the principals of hot yoga, designed to take the place of your regular, boring gym session. Interested?  

Fierce Grace, one of London’s top hot yoga studios has designed the ultimate body workout: WILD – a multi-system, cardio workout based slightly on yoga movements and practiced in the customary hot room.  It’s described by Fierce Grace founder Michelle Pernetta as a ‘weightless gym, firing up the body with strengthening benefits of weight training, non-stop movement of cardio and the muscle lengthening and alignment of yoga.’

As an avid Vinyassa flow and sometime hot yoga enthusiast I took myself off to try this new form of oven-baked torture… I practice regular yoga and am fairly fit – how hard could it be? The answer: very. So, why should YOU try WILD?

  • It was a 360 degree workout – your whole body will feel the burn.
  • The amount that you sweat is intensely satisfying – just make sure you bring a bottle of water with you to rehydrate.
  • It’s great for people who find yoga a bit too slow or don’t enjoy the headspace that it brings you.  There is not much time to think. in WILD – everything is at a fast pace.
  • You undoubtedly would have a body like a Emily Ratajkowski if you took this class once or twice a week."
