Yoga participants in the United States – additional information

Yoga, a physical, mental, and spiritual discipline which includes breath control, meditation, and specific body postures, is widely practiced for mental and physical health and relaxation. Although the practice’s origin traces back to ancient India, yoga became popular as a physical and relaxing activity in Western countries in the 1980s. The rising popularity of yoga is mostly down to the potential health benefits. Yoga, besides improving fitness, flexibility and reducing anxiety, can aid in stress reduction as well.

The popularity of yoga in the USA has risen constantly since the early 2000s. In 2008, there were about 17 million people doing yoga in the U.S. and 16.21 million people stated practicing yoga or pilates within the last 12 months in the spring of that year. By spring of 2016, about 28 million people stated practicing yoga or pilates within the last 12 months in the spring of that year. In total, there were nearly 37 million yoga participants in the country in 2015. This figure is forecast to rise to 55 million by 2020.

In line with the growth in number of participants, the yoga industry in the U.S. is projected to increase in size in the coming years. Revenue of the yoga industry in the country is forecast to jump from about seven billion U.S. dollars in 2012 to about 11.5 billion U.S. dollars in 2020. Classes are the main source of revenue for the industry. Just over 50 percent of the revenue of yoga and pilates products and services market in the U.S. was generated from yoga classes in 2015.
