Seattle Yoga News Offers Statistics on Yoga

Seattle Yoga News Offers Statistics on Yoga

When it comes to yoga, most of us don’t think about statistics.
 
But Seattle Yoga News offered up some pretty good ones for 2016. And they provide a good idea of how popular this form of mind and body meditation has become. 
 
For starters, 36.7 million Americans – about 15 percent of U.S. adults – practiced yoga in 2016. That was up from 20.4 million in 2012. The report further predicted that 34 percent of Americans – or 80 million people – would likely practice yoga over the next 12 months.
 
That's a pretty big bump!
 
Included among all of these yoga lovers are people like Jessica Biel, Reece Witherspoon, Jennifer Aniston and Gwyneth Paltrow. 
 
Pretty good company, huh? But enough about statistics. None of us take yoga classes to be included in a line of statistics! We practice yoga because it’s a wonderful way to get in tune with ourselves and the world around us. 
 
And when you’re looking to do that, My Soul Mat can help. Our yoga mats are colorful and come with positive affirmations, like “I am magical” and “Stand tall. Wear a crown. Be sweet on the inside.”
 
They are designed to provide an uplifting experience for your mind and body meditation. It’s a known fact that your surroundings can have a big impact on your mood. That’s true with the home you live in, the car your drive and your place of work. 
 
My Soul Mat will definitely make your next yoga class more fun! Plus, they’re made with an absorbent top layer comprised of micro-suede and a bottom layer made from natural tree rubber. That provides a firmer grip so you won’t be slip-sliding around.
 
At My Soul Mat, our mission is to help bring self-expression, art and positivity with you on your journey into the fitness world while protecting the earth and YOU from harmful, toxic products.
 
How’s that for a description devoid of statistics? So dig in at your next session and give My Soul Mat a try. You’ll enjoy the experience!

Yoga: Choosing the Best Practice

When it comes to beginning yoga, one of the most common questions is, “Which type do I practice?” Would it be best for you to go for Bikram Yoga like David Beckham, or dive headfirst into Ashtanga Yoga like Sting? Then again, wouldn’t a well-rounded approach that touches on several styles work best?

Can You Speak Yogi?
Can You Speak Yogi?

by Jennifer Tini November 17, 2018

If you know anything about yoga, you know that its roots stretch back to India’s ancient history. The language used by yogis, Sanskrit, is one of the oldest on record. It’s also extremely difficult to learn to speak. So difficult, in fact, that some scholars believe the language was used primarily for writing and that nobody bothered to speak it aloud much at all.
