- A little-less than three-quarters of the American population who practice yoga are women.
- Yoginis contribute roughly $5+ billion annually to yoga classes and products.
- As spending divas, we have made Lululemon Athletica, the world’s biggest yoga-inspired retailer.
- Interesting insight: if yoga improves our strength and flexibility; encourages mindfulness, and teaches us not to harm ourselves (or others), why are we so klutzy doing yoga? There are reports of more than 5,500 yoga-related injuries treated in the U.S. in 2008. (I may have contributed to that stat.)
Why do I practice yoga?
Yoga makes me feel good. It makes me stronger, more open, mindful, flexible, humble, reflective and peaceful. After doing it, I feel at ease with myself. I’m calm and have a sense of purpose.
Now, I just need to channel that sense of purpose and: avoid injury, shop and do something that matters. Om!
