The Luminescent is an independent, high-quality, evidence-based research hub for the history and practice of Yoga. Our aim is to offer an excellent standard of research on the rich history and diverse practice of Yoga to the broader community in the form of open-access articles, essays and visual material.
Founded in 2011 as a research initiative by Jacqueline Hargreaves and Jason Birch, The Luminescent has expanded to collaborate with world-leading experts in the field of Yoga, Sanskrit and Indology to unlock their knowledge for use by the wider public. And hopefully allow for a better quality of education, discourse and conversations in the field.
Your support makes it possible for The Luminescent to offer a unique resource to Yoga teachers, practitioners and enthusiasts worldwide.
