US has over 10% Meditators and Hatha Yoga Practitioners


 US population is 325.7 million, 35 million meditators is over 10%.


 Yoga and meditation, two ancient practices, are now officially the most 
popular alternative health approaches in the United States, each used by around 
35 million adults.

 That’s the word from two reports from the Centers for Disease Control and 
Prevention out Thursday, which looked at the changes in the use of yoga, 
meditation, and chiropractors between 2012 and 2017.

 In 2017, about 14.3 percent of US adults surveyed by the CDC’s National Center 
for Health Statistics said they had done yoga in the past 12 months, while 14.2 
percent had meditated, the reports show. That’s up from 2012, when 9 percent 
were doing yoga and 4 percent meditating.
