Entangled Histories of Yoga, Ayurveda and Alchemy in South Asia

Title

Entangled Histories of Yoga, Ayurveda and Alchemy in South Asia

The project examines the histories of yoga, ayurveda and rasaśāstra (Indian alchemy and iatrochemistry) from the tenth century to the present, focussing on the disciplines' health, rejuvenation and longevity practices. The goals of the project are to reveal the entanglements of these historical traditions, and to trace the trajectories of their evolution as components of today's global healthcare and personal development industries.

The five-year ERC-funded project is based at the Department of South Asian, Tibetan and Buddhist Studies at Vienna University and at Inform at the London School of Economics.
