Broga® Yoga is a unique series of yoga-based fitness programs developed to make yoga more appealing, accessible, and rewarding to anyone, but especially men. This course will teach you how Broga® Yoga combines traditional yoga postures and functional fitness movements for a strong, energetic, and challenging mind-body workout that is less flexibility-intensive than other forms of yoga. In this course you will learn how to focus on the development of strength and cardiovascular fitness, resulting in a class that feels great and delivers a revolutionary workout experience.

Learn the complete formula we’ve taught to over 500 instructors through online and live training courses across the globe, and the unique approach to yoga-fitness training that has brought over 12,000 new happy students to the mat.

INTERNATIONAL NOTICE: Please note that this online training is only available to residents of North America and Australia. All instructor, and certification processes are conducted in English. Thanks!

"The content covered in Broga Training was comprehensive, yet incredibly approachable. Broga Training was one of the most worthwhile investments I've made in myself and in my continued education both as a certified personal trainer and a yoga instructor." - Nolan Bobbit

"Broga® has become the most popular class at my fitness studio" - Jonathan Cruz

"Doing the Broga online training was the perfect solution for my busy life because I could complete the program based on my schedule. It was fun, challenging, and I learned so much. But most of all, I found the Broga philosophy, sequence, and Robert to be so inspiring--that combination altogether made me want to reach the finish line." - Elizabeth Micolucci Kelly

Course Curriculum

"I hope others are telling you this as well but if not I hope you guys know it is really awesome how you are staying involved and available even after the online training is over. I can only imagine how busy you guys are and most online courses have a cycle of pay/learn/certificate/you're on your own...not the case with Broga at all and it is really exciting and heartening for my future hopes and future endeavors with Broga. So thanks for doing what you guys do, doing it really well and supporting us newbies." - Keith Foster

What if I am unhappy with the course?
We would never want you to be unhappy! If you are unsatisfied with your purchase, contact us in the first 30 days and we will give you a full refund.
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.
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?
As outlined above, it is $10/mo to remain a Broga® Yoga Instructor.
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.
