Yet despite these stories, the number of people attending yoga classes continues to grow. It is estimated there are now around 300 million practitioners worldwide, equal to the entire population of the US, and it’s been lovely to welcome some new faces to classes this January.
Students often ask me what ‘style’ of yoga they are practising when they come to my class. Hatha? Iyengar? Vinyasa? Yin? Restorative? Scaravelli….?
