No more classes by Broga at Somerville Armory
With a combination of sadness, fond memories, deep gratitude, tremendous respect for our community of students, and great excitement about the future of Broga, Broga no longer offers classes at the Somerville Armory (though some instructors may independently offer them at certain times).
For a variety of reasons that are explained below, we’ve made the difficult decision that closing the door on this era will enable Broga to cross the threshold into the next.
This was not an easy decision for us, but it ultimately boiled down to these realities:
- Our core business is, and has been, the training and ongoing support of Broga instructors. Locally, the Armory has provided a meaningful launchpad for trainings, developing new instructors and programs, and building a community of dedicated students. But, we’re happy to report, our core business is expanding via exciting partnerships with Crunch Fitness (200+ locations worldwide), Gold’s Gym (500+ locations worldwide), and others. We’ve also recently established a cross-promotional marketing partnership with Reebok, which is focused on spurring further growth in our training programs nationally and globally. There are currently Broga classes running all over the US, with more coming online every month. We need to be fully focused on the larger Broga mission at hand.
- There are now a number of excellent Broga classes being offered weekly in the Boston area so we’re able to confidently encourage you all to explore other options. This hasn’t always been the case.
Memberships, class passes, Groupons, etc. will NO LONGER BE VALID at this location or any other location offering Broga® Yoga classes. To honor your commitment of time and money, we’ve negotiated a couple of great deals for our Somerville Armory students to join the Broga communities at two locations that already offer classes – Brooklyn Boulders Somerville (BKBS) and Commonwealth Sports Club (CSC). When you try them out, beg them both for more Broga classes.
