Broga Instructor Profile: Michael Dever

Michael Dever

Fitness and health have always been an important aspect of my life. From an early age I realised that the way in which you treated your body was the way in which your body treats you. Starting my career in the teaching and training industry and flowing through to managing a successful fitness centre as well as leading classes, this health focus has been re-ignighted in the form of my passion for spreading the yoga message through teaching.

Trained by the Byron Yoga Centre under John Ogilvy as well as being a Broga accredited instructor, I bring a sense of humour (a Canadian one however) and exploration to my teaching. Always with an appetite for new experiences and challenging myself and my students and bringing this “newness” to all of my Workshops. This being said ensuring my students are supported and safe is paramount to a long term yoga journey. I look forward to joining you on the mat.

“Where your focus goes, your energy flows”

WHY DID YOU DECIDE TO BECOME A Broga® INSTRUCTOR?

I became a Broga instructor to share the benefits that I have personally received from Yoga with other guys. By making it man-specific, more Men will feel comfortable to try a Men’s yoga class instead of being intimidated being a beginner walking into a studio for the first time.

WHAT SONG GETS YOUR CLASS PUMPED DURING THE H.I.I.T. SECTION?

A little local flavor or usually some AC/DC like “You Shook me all Night Long”.

IN ADDITION TO BROGA®/YOGA WHAT OTHER FITNESS AND HOBBIES DO YOU ENJOY?

Baseball, Hiking, Concerts, Movies and time with Friends and Family.

WHAT IS THE RATIO OF MEN TO WOMEN IN YOUR CLASS?

My Broga® class is offered for men only, so it’s 100% male.
