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!

1st Broga Class: What to Expect

By Classes, Featured 3 Comments

We’ve had a few people asking us what they should expect at their first Broga class. I thought I’d address this question in a quick post.

For those unfamiliar with yoga or group fitness classes, the idea of working out with a group of strangers can be intimidating. But honestly, it’s only awkward in your head. Once you get in the room, on the mat, the music starts playing, and the Broga moves start flowin’, you’ll be fine. Broga is all about making your yoga experience comfortable. It’s our specialty.

Here’s a few bits on what you can expect when you jump in to your first class…

What to expect:
-The class will be in a medium-sized room with open floors and plenty of space.
-When you arrive, you’ll be asked to sign a waiver and a sign-in sheet (so we can keep track of your classes and add you to the newsletter if you want some newsletter action).
-As you know, Broga is designed specifically for men, but women often attend and many women have become broga regulars.

What to bring:
-mats are available, but bring your own if you have one
-wear comfortable clothes that you’d work out in
-wear light clothes – you’ll probably work up a sweat
-wear a headband if you’re into that kind of thing (Adam is)

Before the class starts:
-let the instructor know if you have any injuries, limitations, or health concerns

When the class starts:
-listen and have fun!

If you have any questions or concerns please give us a call or submit a note on the contact us page.

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!
