This research project explores the origins, developments and transformations of yogic models of the human (e.g. kuṇḍalinī yoga, the cakra system and ritual sex) in the tantric goddess traditions or what might be called 'Śāktism' of medieval India. These Śākta models of esoteric anatomy originating in medieval ascetic traditions became highly influential in South Asia and were popularized in the West.
