Yoga Growth

During the next five years, the number of yoga and Pilates studios in the U.S. is expected to grow at an annualized rate of 3.7 percent, to a total of 30,415. Including the sale of related products, yoga is estimated to be a $10 billion-plus industry. Today, nearly 45 percent of Americans say they are interested in trying yoga. While yoga and Pilates businesses can hire contracted instructors and part-time employees, real estate costs associated with opening brick-and-mortar studios represent a significant barrier to entry.
