Coming from a yoga family max was doing yoga before he could walk and qualified as a teacher not long after that. At a very young age it was clear he would be a yoga superstar. But in the folly of youth, Max was involved in a fall in 2018 from a building on his head. It left him paralysed and told he would never walk perfectly again – much less practice yoga. He proved every doctor wrong. Now Max’s teaches with a humble and sincere authenticity and appreciation to help others and it really shows in his classes. Plus this cheeky chap is incredible at breaking down egos and making things fun. Max is licensed to teach most every style of yoga you can think of, including Broga®.
Starting his athletic career as an American football star for USC, then moving on become a NABA professional super heavyweight bodybuilding champion in the US and UK, Matt suffered a double hip replacement from years of aggressive physical wear. When he was asked to be the first male ambassador for lululemon in Europe while filing the Fat Fighters on Channel 4, he was very surprised. Matt instantly discovered the incredible value of yoga in sport and set out to become a licensed teacher in Rishikesh. Matt then created Broga® fitness yoga , a brand of yoga that would inspire a new generation of men and athletically minded women to the mat. Matt is passionate about making the world of yoga accessible to people who thought they could not do yoga and helping people repair their own bodies.
Myths about Broga & Yoga
Broga® is yoga just for men.
NO WAY! Broga® is yoga + fitness for everyone who wants no nonsense flexibility and increased strength and better alignment. It has the male sensibility of a workout with repeated sets and reps that builds in difficulty as you progress.
Broga® is too hard.
NO WAY! Broga® doesn’t assume you are a Bendy-Wendy type or even that you can touch your toes. From the very first class it is accessible and scalable without ever making new participants feel like they too weak or to inflexible. But you WILL work to YOUR hardest maximum.
Yoga is not a workout and I don’t have time for it.
Since the Broga® workouts are systematically organised by body part, you will always know what you are getting into and can strategically plan the rest of of your fitness for the week. And you will definitely be able to count it as a workout+cardio session+fat burning session for sure.
I don’t understand or like that yoga mumbo jumbo talk.
The language of Broga® is always anatomical and logically based even though the movements are solidly grounded in 3000 ears of yoga practice. We promise you will never be asked to “breathe through your kidneys”, “open your heart” “look through your third eye” or “lift your pelvic floor”!
So what is with the “bro” part then? Sounds like a gimmick.
No we mean it. We aim to build community and “bro”therly connection. Every Broga® class ends in participants interacting and helping each other. We do more with help than what we could ever do on our own. We find this signature element an amazing way to be social-building and community-minded rather than self-introspective.
