Men’s Health Awareness Month: Broga Donating to Prostate Cancer Research

By Events, News No Comments

Here’s the deal: You commit to your health & we’ll commit to donating

In honor of your commitment to your health and Men’s Health Awareness Month (November), Broga is donating funds go the Prostate Cancer Foundation (PCF).

  • Option 1 – Come to 3 Broga classes this month (yes, we know there are only a few weeks left) and we’ll donate 50% of your class payments to PCF and list your name (if you want) on a special page on our website acknowledging you as a contributor.
  • Option 2 – Come to any Broga class with a mustache (men only, please) – you know, for ‘Movember’ – we’ll donate that class payment to PCF.
  • Option 3 – Buy a T-shirt this month, we’ll donate 100% of the proceeds (after our T-shirt production costs) to PCF.

As you’d probably expect, men’s health is a major concern of ours. Through Broga, we are offering men a powerful opportunity to take charge of their personal well-being as they both improve their current quality of life and, hopefully, stave off the many ailments that afflict the sedentary at much higher rates than the active.

Exercise is good for you, but unfortunately, we live with the reality that no matter what we do, bad things can happen to, and in, our bodies. Prostate cancer is one of them. So this month, we’re going to make a contribution to the world-class research being conducted by the PCF.

We hope to make a sizable donation at the end of the month. Lets do this – because we can!

Broga Featured in Martha’s Vineyard Magazine

By News No Comments

Earlier this week, the September issue of Martha’s Vineyard Magazine came out with an extended special section featuring Broga.

We just want to thank Justin Ahren, Jocelyn Filley, and the MV Magazine crew.

Justin, great writing – anything that mentions Fight Club and Charles Bukowski in the same article would generally be awesome in my book, but that they were both mentioned in regards to Broga… well, it’s an honor.

Jocelyn, the photos were/are great. You really captured the essence of Broga – no small feat for a foggy day like the one we had for the shoot.

Thanks again!

We’re very excited to announce that this coming Saturday, August 20th, Broga will be featured on NPR’s “Only A Game.”

We were visited by “Only a Game” Producer Doug Tribou two weeks ago in Somerville, so we’re anxious to hear the feature. If you can, tune into your local NPR station this Saturday and let us know you heard it.

Here is a listing of NPR member stations and the “Only A Game” timeslot nationally.

See you on air!

Broga Partners with the City of Somerville, MA

By Featured, News No Comments

Broga, in partnership with Somerville’s Mayor Joseph Curtatone and his “Mayor’s Fitness Challenge,” is very excited to announce the launch of a new class serving the greater Boston area. Beginning on April 23, 2011 Broga will be taught each Saturday at 10am at the Somerville Armory.

The successful Shape Up Somerville Initiative and the Mayor’s Fitness Challenge, now both going into their second year, were designed to encourage residents and city workers to take charge of their personal health and well-being through organized events and incentive programs.

In honor and support of this program, Broga will be offering anyone involved in the Mayor’s Fitness Challenge free classes through the month of May.

Any other first-time attendees will be granted one complimentary pass. After that, all classes will be donation-based, with a $10 recommended donation.

Classes will be taught at the Shanti at the Armory studio on the first floor of the Armory. For schedule information and a map, see the schedule page.

For more information on Broga, check out the home page or contact us via form, email or phone through the contact page.

Your move. Your life. Get ‘real. fit.’

See you there!
