Lately I have been studying the spiritual philosophies of the East. You know, New Jersey and the like. Yoga seems to be a smash hit in this country. Cute, skinny ladies wearing colorful outfits stretching on eco-friendly rubber mats.
That’s right, yoga is stretching.
Yoga was originally designed as a set of postures to allow one to sit for extended periods of time while meditating. It has now found its own cult following and become a religion in itself.
Take the styles: hot yoga, hang from ropes yoga, paddle board yoga, underwater yoga, pose in front of cool places and get your picture taken yoga, Antarctica yoga, naked yoga, and (my new personal favorite) goat yoga – that’s where baby goats crawl around on you as you do your stretching. Goat yoga is a huge hit with a waiting list of over 1200 people.
2.5 billion dollars is spent a year on yoga instruction.
27 billion dollars is spent a year on yoga products.
72% of yoga participants are female with 28% being male.
So guys, forget the dating sights, sign-up for a yoga class and get some exercise at the same time.
