Yoga Myth Busting: Yoga Is Only for Women

Updated: Sep 10, 2019

A quick Google Image search for "yoga" and it's dominated by young athletic women perfectly pulling off all sorts of poses.


Now much like Google when you think of Yoga those sorts of images probably come to mind. You won't be the only one.


And the numbers do back that up. According to a 2016 Yoga Journal study, 72% of yoga practitioners in the United States are women.


Whilst this is dominated by women, it's not "only" for them. 38% is still a lot of men in the United States who are practicing yoga!


That percentage is also up from 17.8 percent in 2012. That's 10 million male yogis! With more and more men trying yoga every day.
