BOGA FiTMAT

FluidMotion is the exclusive provider of BOGAFiT and BOGAYoga classes in the Pittsburgh region. The FiTMat is an aquatic floating fitness mat made specifically for pools. BOGAFiT is a fitness regimen developed by combining the best aspects of key proven core movements from yoga and boot camp type workouts to rehabilitation and kids classes. BOGA’s unique FiTMAT provides the Aquatic Base that intensifies these movements, creating focus on core muscle groups and improving balance and coordination.  While BOGAFiT provides challenges to even the most fit individuals, the program was designed for universal scalability, making it the perfect fitness program for all levels, regardless of experience. Since FiTMAT provides a dynamic base, the harder you work, the more difficult and intense the workout becomes.

It's unlike any other class you have participated in before!  Our BOGA FiTMAT classes are a unique blend of isometric and plyometric exercises that are designed to keep your core strong while increasing flexibility and functional movement.

  BOGA Yoga   Not all yoga classes are created equal. Not all yoga classes have beautiful solid floors and incense. Leave the comfort of your land practice on shore and step into the beauty of a floating studio. The water creates a peaceful atmosphere yet challenges your balance in an entirely different way. You will feel the subtle body awaken and your mind body relationship quickly shift. We will take time to become acquainted with the board by learning how to align your body to evenly distribute weight and create balance. The floating studio provides the perfect setting to let go of the monkey mind and be fully present in the moment. After a short meditation and gentle stretching we will heat things up with sun salutations and a progressive practice where you can challenge yourself and redefine body awareness on an unstable foundation. This practice is meant to be joyful and fun, with options available for all levels and ages. There will be plenty of play time to test out your favorite poses on the water. The practice closes with a seated flow leading you into a blissful floating Savasana. Be prepared to laugh, have fun and test the waters!   See when classes are offered.
