Introduction

Over the last three decades, Modern Yoga Studies has established itself as a vibrant and multifaceted field of research that fruitfully combines approaches from the disciplines of Indology and South Asian studies, religious studies, philosophy and anthropology.

Through this multidisciplinary effort, the perception of Yoga in the academic world has fundamentally changed. Yoga is no longer considered an obnoxious phenomenon transplanted from obscure Hindu milieus into Western sub-cultures but generally recognized as a phenomenon of South Asian cultural, religious and philosophical history that developed through creative, flexible and constructive processes into a phenomenon of substantial significance for the globalized world.

Multiple aspects of Yoga and its history remain in the dark or are just beginning to receive the scholarly attention they deserve. Nevertheless, the scholarly progress that was recently achieved concerning the traditions of Pātañjala, Haṭha, and Rāja Yoga, their interrelation and entanglement with other pre-modern Indian religious and philosophical traditions, the relationship of Yoga, Indian medicine (Ayurveda) and alchemy, the role of Yoga in Tantric traditions, the history of physical Yoga and āsana-practice etc. can hardly be over-emphasized.

These significant improvements in the state of research need to be communicated, discussed, and shared within the circle of specialists and the broader public with a sustained interest in the history of Yoga theory and practice.

With this thought in mind, Yoga Vidya e.V., “the leading supplier of seminars on Yoga, Ayurveda and related topics in Europe” (www.yoga-vidya.de), organizes an international academic conference in cooperation with the Universities of Leipzig and Hamburg.

On this occasion, some of the world-leading specialists in Modern Yoga Studies will gather to highlight their recent discoveries, insights and innovative methodological approaches in comprehensive and comprehensible live-on-stage and online presentations, each of which will be concluded with a public discussion. 
 
The COVID 19 pandemic has caused an unprecedented disruption of the way we live, work, and interact socially. Although future developments and consequences of the pandemic are challenging to predict, we want to stay in touch, not only within the circle of colleagues but also with the interested public.

Therefore, the conference is planned as a hybrid event at which as many scholars as possible will present their research live in Bad Meinberg. Scholars who will not attend the conference due to travel restrictions will present their papers online.

The audience may choose to either participate in the event in Bad Meinberg or join the live-streaming of presentations and discussions.
