The Hatha Yoga Project (HYP) started in October 2015 and will run until September 2020. Its aim is to chart the premodern history of physical yoga practice through textual and ethnographic sources: Sanskrit texts on yoga and interviews with traditional ascetic practitioners of yoga. The project team has published various articles, and will be producing ten critical editions of Sanskrit texts, four monographs and a film as its primary outputs.
