With rising awareness and enthusiasm about health and yoga and steep changes occurring in the employment market, yoga is gaining momentum and more and more people are opting to choose yoga as a full-time career.
Knowledge of Yoga was given to the world by the Indian sage and philosopher Patanjali about 3000 years ago. In earlier times yoga was not common to all, only a selected few rishis and enlightened men performed yoga and meditation. Slowly and gradually through the centuries yoga went through a lot of changes and various sects and forms of yoga were discovered by people on their own accord. And today people around the globe understand the power and value of yoga and have included it in their lifestyle.
Regions like Africa, European Union, and the Asia Pacific are expecting a boom in the industry and a huge number of job roles for yogis and yoga students.
