Broga – just for boys?

on April 28, 2015

Broga. Yep because men can’t just do yoga they must do a more manly form called Broga. There is a teacher training programme running in Edinburgh next month so I assume that we’re going to have some Broga classes here soon.

I’ve said before that I think that yoga should be for everyone and that often those who are most resistant to it are those who would benefit most from it. My brother does quite a bit of cycling, running, cross fit and can only just about reach his toes. Yet I would never get him to come to a yoga class. I think I could at least get him to try a broga class.

Do we really need a separate name for essentially what is a men’s yoga class? Maybe not but we live in a world where people want to try the latest trend and branding is an important part of that. Also you can’t licence and copyright ‘men’s yoga classes’ but you can Broga.

For May they are doing a 30 day challenge which they will send you videos every day. I’ve signed up to receive them and it’ll be interesting to see what the workout’s are like. I don’t think I’ll do all of them but you never know I might turn out to be a Broga convert.
