‘Yoga research’

In today’s class we have started doing research about our chosen ‘cafe cause’.

1. Most research is done in USA, but the UK statistics are apparently very close to those numbers. So, here are some interesting statistics about my chosen topic—yoga:

    • 72% of practitioners are women, 28% are men
    • 43% practice at home
    • an incredible 9.5% of Americans have tried yoga in the past
    • 8% still do

74% of practitioners have been practicing fo 5 years or less

A charity that comes close is this one (they educate people about the benefits of yoga):

3. Here are some quotes about yoga:

“When you own your breath, nobody can steal your peace.”

“Yoga is not about touching your toes. It is what you learn on the way down.”

“All problems are illusions of the mind.”

“The pose begins when you want to get out of it.”

“Inhale love, exhale hate.”

 

4. Lastly, here is an amazing video about the essence of yoga:
