Fierce Grace, The Beast


"Saturdays are best spent sprawled on the sofa after one too many tonics the night before… agreed? Not last Saturday I’m afraid. My weekend began with a debut at Fierce Grace, a studio with a difference central to the city where I would attempt to embrace my long lost zen. One glance at their website gives a clue as to what to expect. A bulky tattooed man is the last image you would associate with yoga. But read on.

The first thing Fierce Grace do for you is define ‘fierce’ and ‘grace’! Fierce need not be a snarling lion, it is all about ‘heartfelt powerful intensity’ and ‘forceful resolute action’ in this corner of London town. And Grace is defined not in balletic terms but as ‘inspiration from a higher power’. After 1 hour and 45 minutes of advanced yoga in their ‘The Beast’ class, you have completely redefined those two words for yourself. This is powerful, action-packed, inspirational exercise.

My initial scepticism was met with an encouraging assurance that Fierce Grace is as flexible as it intends to make you! It comprises of a unique series of 6 different classes, each with a different emphasis, duration and intensity. This is adaptable exercise specifically designed to achieve maximum results in the minimum amount of time. Think Speed Yoga!

...Thank you Fierce Grace for releasing our inner beast, and perhaps even stimulating a lasting love for Yoga"
