More and More Boomers are Turning to Yoga

written by Angelena Craig

Boomers, more than ever before are taking up Yoga. They realize it is one of the most efficient and cost effective ways to address the body/mind connection. They find that by attending a yoga class, even if only once a week, this complete system of self improvement keeps them flexible, relaxed and with a more positive attitude.

According to the much respected magazine, Yoga Journal, the statistics in the United States reveal that:

...6.9% of U.S. adults, or 15.8 million people, practice some form of yoga

...Of current non-practitioners, nearly 8%, or 18.3 million Americans, say they are very or extremely interested in yoga, triple the number from the 2004 study. And 4.1% of non-practitioners, or about 9.4 million people, say they will definitely try yoga within the next year.
