Dear Readers, please note that the website is currently frozen and not being updated. Since its beginnings in 2006 the site has been consistently acknowledged as a very useful resource for yoga studies, but is in need of some rethinking and restructuring to get it up to date. The site managers and other interested parties are looking into the matter, and we hope that a new version of the site will be offered to the public in due course. In the meantime, do feel free to enjoy its contents, and thank you for your interest in our work!


The illustration reproduced on the site banner is of Yogamudrā (“yoga seal”). This illustration and the devanāgarī text featuring in the banner are both taken from Yogasopāna Pūrvacatuṣka, a Marathi book by Yogi Ghamande (Bombay: Janardan Mahadev Gurjar, Niranayasagar Press, 1905).
