The growth of the Pilates and Yoga Studios industry has lost pace over the past five years after several decades of rapid expansion. Originally an ancient Indian belief system, yoga has now become part of Britain's mainstream health and fitness sector. At the turn of the century, both Pilates and yoga providers benefited from strong consumer sentiment, rises in disposable incomes and growing health consciousness. Another major driver of demand over this period has been the interest in yoga, and even Pilates, as a gentle and holistic way to exercise, relax and disconnect from busy lives and heavy workloads.
Facilities in this industry offer Pilates and yoga instruction to individuals or groups. Pilates is a body-conditioning routine designed to build strength and flexibility, while yoga is a physical and spiritual practice focused on breath control, flexibility and strength. Pilates and yoga classes taught at gyms or health clubs are not covered in this industry.
