In recent years the number of people doing yoga has increased exponentially. According to an ACSM Worldwide Survey of Fitness data yoga is currently the eighth most popular fitness trend. The International Yoga Federation says that more than 300 million people practice it around the world. However, not only is yoga popular but a recent report from Ipsos Public Affair, says that yoga generates more than 30 billion dollars a year, of which 16 billion are concentrated in the United States. In Spain, a recent study by Aomm.tv (through the Sondea Institute), on the practice of yoga reveals that 28.9% of the Spanish population practice or have practiced this discipline in their lifetime, with stress reduction most frequently cited as the main reason for its practice.

A yoga session is divided into several parts involving the following practices: Asanas (postures), which develop flexibility and strength; Pranayama (breathing exercises), leading to concentration of mind; Relaxation, the process of physical and mental stillness, abstracting any external stimulus, and Meditation, which is the culmination of all previous actions in order to quiet the mind.
