We hear a lot about yoga today. It’s hard not to see the impact of its increasing popularity across modern culture — from our social media feeds to the covers of magazines to inclusion in mainstream advertising campaigns to yoga classes offered by gyms, recreation centers, health clubs, the corner yoga studio, and more. International Yoga Day (June 21), founded by the United Nations in late 2014, has now been annually celebrated internationally for years. Yoga is so popular now that we might stop and ask ourselves: why?
