This International Yoga Day, we're celebrating the many different types of yoga practiced all around the world. We crunched the numbers and found out how many minutes yogis spent on the mat globally through Mindbody classes last year—and it’s a LOT.
We were eager to research more about what types of yoga are the most popular and what motivates yogis to practice.
