Abstract : India has a very old knowledge on certain techniques of the body which are revivified in the contemporary world. The globalisation of yoga is an example. Yoga becomes more and more a globalised technique of the body which is practised with a therapeutic, cultural, and/or identity aim. The corpus of yoga is then modified and “bricolé” to fit into individual and collective needs, inviting us to deepen the reflection about interindividual network connexions at the global scale.
The multiple circulations of yoga to the contemporary world largely influence the construction, the practice and the perception of the global space. Indeed, yoga takes place in particular places, constructed or reappropriated, depending on an original interpretation of yoga. There is a topogenesis operating then, which leads us to renew our considerations about therapeutic landscapes, their globalisation, and their importance in the contemporary geographical thought.
