For The Fellas… “Broga”
This is mostly hilarious to me, but if it helps people find a comfortable way to exercise, I am all for it…
Introducing BROGA (as described on their website):
Broga is a yoga class geared for men (where it’s okay if you can’t touch your toes).
Strong, energetic,and challenging, Broga combines the best core-strengthening, muscle-toning, cardio-working, stress-reducing, clarity-enhancing yoga postures with functional fitness exercises for an amazing workout.
You’ll get that pumped-up feeling you get from working out and a deep flexibility and relaxation feeling from “working in.”
If you’ve already been to a class, we’ll see you again soon. If not, you’ll thank yourself for making the effort to show up. Good music, cool vibe, all are welcome.
It’s your move. Get “real. fit.”©
…is to offer men real tools for coping with daily stresses and demands through an accessible yoga-based fitness program taught from a man’s point of view. Broga is for every “body,” from the beginner yogi to the professional athlete.
…help men to live in their most organic selves: strong, peaceful, guided, internally and outwardly connected, powerful and compassionate from the inside out. Our Brograms, services and merchandise enable men to walk, compete, and live stronger, balanced lives.
…is to increase the number of men, worldwide, practicing Broga and living authentically through our classes, workshops, retreats and teacher trainings in gyms, yoga studios, universities, high schools, prisons, police and fire departments, community centers, corporations, small and big businesses and in private family homes.

I appears to be offered primarily in Massachusetts at this point, but they are offering Broga Instructor Certification, so expect to see it coming to a gym near you!!!
