Broga: Yoga for Dudes
This is a real thing.
from Broga: Yoga for Men
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, your first class is on us, but you’ll be thanking yourself for making the effort to show up. Good music, cool vibe, all are welcome.
Hm, okay, I see what they’re trying to do here: re-brand yoga as an activity/lifestyle/exercise choice that’s “cool” for men to do too. That’s fine, and especially if this sort of environment encourages men to try other non-bro-centric yoga classes. Except making this gender divide even more visible works against some great lessons that men (and women) can learn in more co-ed classes. I think yoga is humbling and the teachings of yoga (not just Broga) show you that yes it is okay if you can’t touch your toes. It’s also okay if your neighbor can touch his/her toes. All of our bodies are different, and that’s something that should be celebrated, not hidden.
It’s probably different for us since we’re in university setting and Ithaca is very yoga-friendly, but there are a lot of guys, of all ages, in our yoga classes. I think that’s great, not only because A) it’s sexy but also B) I think we have a lot to learn from each other. I like seeing guys who are new at yoga hit balance poses that I’ve struggled with, or push up from chaturanga like it’s nothing; I like seeing people older than me bending in ways that I can’t. It encourages me to grow and find new ways of honoring my body, and I appreciate sharing my practice with all sorts of different people.
