Yoga For The Odd Ones

Traditionally yoga has been a platform for those who want a quiet space to release their stress and become more centred. The healthy life style has seen a tremendous rise in participants of the ancient practice. According to research provided by organisations such as Bio Med Central and the Yoga Allience, the practice is constantly gaining popularity. In fact IBIS World’s research believes it will continue to grow by 4.9% each year until 2020. The rise in popularity could be the UN’s decision to designate June 21 as the national day of yoga. Let us all thank Prime Minister Narendra Modi. Yoga has been a part of the western world for some time now, and people have found odd ways to modify the practice to match their lifestyle. Who says everything has to be traditional.
