That's according to a recent survey done by OnePoll. Here's how it breaks down:
- Habits of 2,000 Americans found dedicated yogis will pay out just under $90 on yoga a month, or $1,044 a year.
- In a lifetime, a yogi will spend $28,800 just on yoga classes and an additional $33,840 on other yoga essentials like apparel, mats and props.
Interestingly, no yogi is complaining. Eighty-seven percent of people who have tried yoga are in a better mood when they leave the studio — which is why they keep coming back for more. Of the 2,000 people studied, 62 percent had done yoga at least once in their life. Yogis practice an average of twice per week, while yogis who prefer group classes practice even more often: 16 percent of them practice at least five times a week.
One more thing, and it's very important: Group classes leave yogis feeling happier than those who just do yoga at home. The survey revealed that 56 percent of people who typically do yoga in group classes say they are “very happy” after a yoga class, compared to just 36 percent of people who practice individually.
