Teach With Fierce Grace


"The only people for me are the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time, the ones who never yawn or say a commonplace thing, but burn, burn, burn like fabulous yellow roman candles exploding like spiders across the stars."

Jack Kerouac, On the Road

Fierce Grace is the UK’s fastest growing yoga brand. We have some of the best hot yoga instructors in Europe and our busy studios have taught half a million people.

Michele has taught over 200,000 students over a 23 year career. She brought Hot Yoga to the UK by opening the first Bikram studio and has personally mentored most of the Bikram yoga teachers in the UK. Her love is working with injuries, and helping new teachers find their own personal voice.

Michele's extensive experience and qualifications in Bikram, Ashtanga Vinyasa, Rocket, Power Yoga and Martial Arts, as well as her decades of study in health and meditation have culminated in the Fierce Grace system. Her teaching team are experienced in Power Yoga, Vinyasa, Ashtanga, Dharma Mittra, Jivamukti, Forrest and Bikram, to bring a wide array of viewpoints, techniques and understanding.

Michele and her instructors have many years of experience in teaching students and teachers. Our training team is led by Michele, Mark Oram, Emma Croft and Karen Bellfield and includes Bikram Yoga Senior teachers, Yoga Alliance Professionals Senior Yoga Teachers, Ashtanga and Dharma Mittra teachers as well as lecturers at the top of their fields in anatomy, osteopathy, yoga philosophy, voice coaching, and presentation skills. This wide approach will bring you a deeper understanding not only of the Fierce Grace system but also a deeper understanding and appreciation of many yoga systems. We believe a great yoga teacher should understand many styles of yoga, and be able to draw on a wide knowledge base to create the best possible experience for their students.


Very few yoga teachers have run their own successful studios. Michele has four busy studios and has supported countless other studio set-ups. Michele will share with you the knowledge gained from working with her team of over 50 teachers and hearing their needs and feedback over the years. Michele has a special interest in working with injuries.

Our experience teaching new teachers the skills that they need to teach in the hot room, to teach large classes and a multi-level class that includes different body types, ages and injuries has given us a unique opportunity to develop programs that aid new teachers in areas not currently taught on many TT courses.


New yoga teachers often feel unprepared to deal with the vast array of injuries that people come to class with. As more and more injured people turn to yoga for healing, the teacher must be more skilled at working with them. We will cover the basic injuries, and how to work with them, and we will give you a chance to practice using them in a real situation. You will learn how to approach the injured student in a spirit of interest, openness and a desire to take a journey with that student to see how best they can be served.
