My yoga journey

Yoga in America

on January 21, 2016

The Yoga Alliance completed its 2016 study of yoga in America. They released a beautiful infographic, which is below.

It’s really interesting to see the results. Especially that 72% of people practicing yoga are women and 74% have been practicing for less than 5 years. Also $16.8 billion US Dollars on yoga class, clothing and equipment seems huge but it’s only $210 per person of the 80 million people who practice yoga. I’ve spent more than that on my current block of classes that run until the end of March and I’m sure one day I’ll add up everything that I spend on yoga but I know that it’s more than that.

The full study results are 80 pages long and can be read on the Yoga Alliance website here.
