The billion dollar business of yoga
Everybody has heard about the phenomenon of Yoga. From the streets and temples of Calcutta to the gyms of Los Angeles, people from all demographics and walks of life are laying down their mats and striking their poses. It has become a global craze with countries like Japan seeing a growth rate of over 400% in the past 5 years.

According to the research of dr-discount, the practitioners are also spending a lot of money in the process, so much so that yoga is now a billion dollar market and one of the fastest growing industries in the United States, with many other countries following the trend.

Perhaps there's some irony there. Yoga began as a minimalist practice in Ancient India, drawing from Buddhist and Hindu beliefs. Today it is a commercialized hobby carried out by soccer moms and CEOs, between their lattés and office meetings.

Our Infographic explores the data behind this growing form of exercise and meditation, just who is partaking in the practice, and the driving forces behind its popularity.
