About Yoga Studies at SOAS

SOAS is leading the way in the field of yoga studies, which is growing rapidly around the globe. We host the Hatha Yoga Project, a research initiative funded by the European Research Council, which will chart the history of physical yoga practices, and we are one of only four universities in the world to offer an MA in Yoga and Meditation.

The Centre aims to be a hub for scholars, students and all those interested in yoga. We host a summer school, lecture series, seminars and workshops in order to share our work, learn from that of others and develop new collaborations.

Our SOAS Centre of Yoga Studies YouTube channel has recordings of many of our past events.
