Abstract





This paper examines yoga āsana and vyāyāma instruction from Bengal in the twentieth century. It focuses on three themes as they appear in materials prior to the 1960s. These themes are the focus on yoga for health, the inclusion of vyāyāma in Bengali language sources and the introduction of women to yoga.
