Survey: Who Practices Yoga More, Men or Women?

We have run many fun and insightful surveys regarding meditation practice here on Mastery of Meditation and Yoga, and now it is time to run a survey to learn about your yoga practice.  To read the interesting surveys and results we have run so far, just go to the Surveys Category.

These surveys give you real life insight into the actual practices of other aspirants, a chance to learn from their experiences, as well as an opportunity to share knowledge with each other. Today’s survey is to find out if there is any truth behind the notion that women tend to practice yoga more than men!

Yoga practice for this survey includes any practice of yoga breathing exercises (yoga pranayama) and, of course, any type of yoga (kundalini, hatha, ashtanga (power), vinyasa, iyengar, bikram (hot), etc).  It does not include the exclusive practice of just yoga meditations (manta meditation, trataka concentration meditation, AUM meditation, etc).  In other words I more interested in the practice of physical yoga for the purpose of this survey.

All answers are of course anonymous. Please do participate, we all appreciate your input. Thanks.

1. Please select answer below regarding, if you male or female and if you practice yoga or not.

    I do the kundalini yoga DVD taught by Gurmukh. I haven’t taken a live class in a long time but when I did there were more women.

    Yes, I have gone to many yoga classes over the years and it is mostly women. However… since I moved to San Francisco, two years ago, the classes here seem to be a 50/50 mix of males and females in most classes.
