Frequently Asked Questions
What is a Broga class like?
Sorry to hear that you haven’t been to one yet, but we’re working on that! …(maybe you’ll help bring it to your town)! A Broga class is a powerful, fluid Vinyasa-style yoga class with carefully placed body-weight based strength-building exercises and our big secret: High Intensity Interval Training segments. It’s a fun, challenging class that provides a legitimate whole body workout and a mind-body-balancing work”in”. It’s a unique experience. You’ll dig it.
What is Broga?
Through the training course, you’ll learn that Broga is made up of 3 main pillars; Purpose, Flow, and Connection.
Can women take this course?
Of course! Women are more than welcome as Broga students and instructors. In fact, about 50% of the successful Broga instructors out there are women.
I’m already a 200hr or 500hr Registered Yoga Teacher. Will this course be of any value to me?
We can’t tell you how many 200hr and 500hr RYTs have completed this course and given it rave reviews. What Broga offers is a new lens through which to see the whole landscape of yoga and fitness. Even if you’re already teaching successful classes, you (we all) can always benefit from new ideas and ways of doing things. And if you’ve found yourself asking questions like… Why aren’t more guys already participating in yoga? Why aren’t more men attending group fitness classes? What can I do to get more guys in my class? …This course will give you answers and real tools to do something about it.
I’ve never done anything like this before, is this a good place for me to be?
We’ve trained MANY newbies – people interested in exploring yoga for their own personal health and wellbeing; people interested in moonlighting as yoga or group exercise instructors; people interesting in taking a 200hr yoga course but wanting a way to test the waters… Whatever your scenario, you’ll be welcomed, comfortable, and given a very strong foundation from which you can continue to learn and grow.
I already have tons of guys in my (“yoga”/”TRX”/etc) class. Can I learn anything new?
Absolutely! You’ll get a refined understanding of why what you’re doing is working and what you can improve on. And you’ll also bring great value to the rest of the community by sharing your experiences and perspective.
Does this course provide continuing education credits?
At the moment, only our in-person training courses are accredited by NASM, ACE, and AFAA for continuing education credits, but we’ll be submitting this course for review shortly and expect it to go through. At that point, we may (not 100% sure yet) be able to issue CECs retroactively.
What is the difference between a certificate of completion and a license?
The “certificate of completion” is proof that you completed, and passed, this course. It’s something you can put on your resume, put on your wall, and feel proud of earning. A Broga® Yoga “license” is a co-signed document (between you and Broga) that says that you’ve completed the additional steps necessary be an official representative of the brand, member of the community, and official “Broga® Yoga” instructor.
Does it cost more money to become a “Licensed Instructor”? Are there additional fees?
There is no additional cost to becoming licensed, but there is an annual renewal process that is outlined above.
What if I don’t want to teach “Broga® Yoga”?
That’s fine! You don’t have to. Of course, we’d love to have you in the community and have you representin’ Broga out there in the world, but this course will be valuable to you even if you don’t plan on actually teaching “Broga® Yoga”. In fact, a lot of people have found what they’ve learned in Broga training extremely useful with their personal training clients, group fitness classes, and/or other yoga classes.
