Since its inception in the year 2015, June 21st is celebrated as “The International Day of Yoga” across the globe. Yoga might have originated in India, but it is now widely practiced everywhere, including the US. In fact, yoga enthusiasts all over the world are celebrating the International Yoga Day in their own way.

USA

A host of events were organized in the past week to mark the fourth anniversary of the International Day of Yoga. These events saw the participation of people from all walks of life, who performed different asanas and breathing exercises.

India

Yoga events are being held all over the country, with the one where PM Modi led an estimated 50, 000 volunteers to mark the fourth anniversary of International Yoga Day, taking the centerstage.

International Yoga Day 2018 Live Updates: Yoga Has Emerged As Biggest Unifying Force, Says PM Modi

New Delhi: PM Modi led an estimated 50, 000 volunteers to mark the fourth anniversary of International Yoga Day. Vice President M Venkaiah Naidu along with several Union Ministers are also to host part of similar events across the country.

We, at XS Worldwide, organized an invigorating yoga session at our India Headquarters, which left our employees asking for more. They could not contain their zeal and fervor, and advocated that such sessions be held at regular intervals. Their sheer enthusiasm has encouraged us to give this some serious thought, and make yoga a regular part of our work lives.

Love Yoga? Wait Till You Find Out People Are Making Money Out Of It!

Yoga may be practiced for mental and physical health and well-being, but there’s more to this ancient practice than meets the eye. Yes, yoga is all about breath control, meditation and specific body postures, but did you know that it is now also a multi-billion industry? The market for yoga is growing and how. Take the U.S. for example, where the practice seems to have gained a cult following throughout the country, so much so that in 2015, the revenue of the yoga industry amounted to 9.09 billion U.S. dollars in the United States, and is expected to hit a whopping 11.56 billion by 2020.

The number of people learning and practicing yoga is on the rise. No wonder then, yoga classes make up the majority of the industry’s revenue. Pilates and yoga accreditation training and merchandise sales also have their fair share of contribution.

Even Part-Time Instructors Are Laughing All The Way To The Bank

If the reports are anything to go by, fitness instructors make anything between $23 and $31 an hour. However, those with a specialized expertise, specifically yoga, seem to have the upper hand. While a group exercise instructor makes $26.79 hourly, a yoga instructor on the other hand, takes home $31.46 for an hour. Do the math. Even personal trainers are far behind at $24.80/hour.

Yoga Is An Integral Part Of The Wellness Travel Industry

Concepts like yoga cruises, yoga & surf, yoga & detox, yoga & diving, yoga & sports, yoga & wine, yoga & meditation and yoga & ayurveda not only underline the importance of yoga, but are also generating millions of dollars in business. With yoga’s popularity growing with each passing day, these concepts aren’t going anywhere, not anytime soon, more so because those who practice and teach yoga claim to have achieved a new-found balance in their lives, and swear by yoga’s role in giving them strength, dexterity, and mental clarity.

Yoga Has A Bright Future. You Can Have One Too

With 34 percent of Americans likely to practice yoga in the next 12 months, for better flexibility, stress relief, and general fitness, yoga is here to stay. Instructors are not only conducting physical classes, but also streaming sessions online so as to reach more people than they ever could physically. More and more schools are making yoga a part of their curricula, since it makes the kids calmer. So, if you are a yoga instructor or planning to become one soon, you are in for a treat.

We at XS Worldwide, may not see yoga as a business opportunity, but we do believe that yoga should be a regular part of our lives. It is with this belief that on the 21st of June, we’ll be organizing a de-stressing  yoga session at our India Headquarters, in the presence of an experienced instructor. Hopefully, this International Yoga Day will mark the beginning of a new journey for our employees, with a much better work-life balance.

Yoga Is Now Funnier Than Ever. Laugh Your Way To Health!

With the International Yoga Day just around the corner, the ancient practice has been all over the news of late. While yoga is not new per se, it has been redesigned or rather reimagined, at least in some parts of the world. It has a lot of new forms, many of which are quite funny, so to say. Here are the top 5 giggle-worthy trends that have been catching on.

 

Beer Yoga

It is actually a thing. You attend a yoga class that’s more or less similar to every yoga class that you have been to, except that here you also gulp down a bottle or two of beer over the course of the session. What’s even funnier is that you could be asked to attempt to balance the bottle on your head while holding yourself in the instructor’s pose of choice.

Are You Fit Enough for Beer Yoga?

Yoga is already hard enough. In news that appears to be the happy-accident byproduct of a hipster laboratory experiment gone awry, something called “beer yoga” wants to make your exercise routine of choice a little sloppier.

Doga Or Dog Yoga

Dog parlors are a thing of the past. Welcome to the age of DOH’-guh. This one claims to have its own share of advantages: your dog has a better posture, you and your dog get some bonding time, and the poor soul has that once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to socialize. Phew!

Dog yoga classes improve canine posture and behavior, veterinarian says

A New York exercise class is bringing new meaning to the phrase “downward-facing dog.” A Rochester-area veterinarian is teaching a dog-and-human class called doga (DOH’-guh). WOMAN DOING YOGA ON PLANE SPARKS ONLINE DEBATE: NOBODY NEEDS TO SEE PEOPLE FLAILING ABOUT Dr. Danni Shemanski of the Hilton Veterinary Hospital tells WHEC that doga can improve dogs’ posture.

Paddleboard Yoga

It’s not as funny as the others, but does offer you an alternate – a good one for that matter, taking the mundaneness out of your yoga routine. You stand on a paddleboard, and keep yourself balanced and afloat. And yes if do fall, others can have a good laugh at your expense. Just kidding!

10 Reasons You Should Try Yoga On A Stand Up Paddleboard

Is your yoga routine getting a little stale? If you’re looking for a new challenge, yoga on a stand up paddleboard will reinvigorate you and push you to become an even better yogi than you thought possible — all while enjoying the natural splendor of floating on water.

Goat Yoga

This one has a waiting list, and you may not be able to experience it for yourself for a while. Incredible, right? Imagine, these small animals jumping up onto your back as you try to maintain something difficult, like a plank position. A sight for sore eyes. LOL!   

‘Goat yoga’ is a thing – and hundreds are lining up for it

Her goat yoga classes have become so popular, there’s a 1,200-person waiting list that’s growing by the day. The classes are held at Morse’s scenic Oregon farm, where the goats have open access to the guests during their practice. Snuggles are not uncommon, and neither is the occasional upward goat on a downward dog.

Broga®

Been looking for a non-judgmental yoga class, where it’s ok if you can’t touch your toes? Broga’s to your rescue.  It’s a yoga class, specifically for men, especially if you are a bit reluctant to join a class dominated by women. Quite a male chauvinist thing, some might say, but men who swear by it, seem to disagree. In fact, they have done away with the calming chants and soft music, and replaced it with tracks that are more mainstream.

The rise of Broga

If you’re a man who has struggled through yoga class feeling self-conscious next to a woman who can touch her nose to her knees with ease, take heed. A Broga studio may be coming to a city near you. But what is Broga, exactly?

 

These trends may be funny, but they do you some solid good. You keep your phone aside and spend some time breathing and stretching. So they are not all bad. However, those who practice yoga in its true sense might not agree. To each his own. What matters is that you take to yoga in whatever way you can.

We at XS Worldwide, are about to take the plunge. This International Yoga Day, we’ll be conducting a de-stressing yoga session at our India Headquarters, where our employees will hopefully be able to connect with their lighter and subtle self, as they goodbye to stress and anxiety.
