BOGA’s FITMAT is an innovative floating mat that builds strength, deepens flexibility, and improves balance and coordination through a carefully selected set of movements while minimizing the harsh impacts of traditional land exercises. It creates a high intensity workout that remains low intensity on your body.
Indian Valley YMCA’s branch debuted these two new water classes in April 2017.
Takes your yoga practice to a new level of intention. Practicing poses on the FITMAT requires the yogi’s full attention, mind, body and spirit in order to move seamlessly from one posture to the next while maintaining balance.
Boasts a total body workout on water. Classes focus on total body conditioning while building core stability on an unstable surface. Both classes are limited to six participants.

Dawne Wentzel, Group Exercise Coordinator, at the Indian Valley Family YMCA stated, “The Boga FITMAT workouts not only give you a great workout, but it challenges and connects your mind, body, and spirit, while delivering one of the most fun workouts around!”
