The reach of new forms of yoga is global, but the setting for this chapter is Singapore, with a focus on Inner Engineering offered by Sadhguru Jaggi Vasudev’s Isha Yoga Institute and Sudarshan Kriya” offered by Sri Sri Ravi Shankar as part of the Art of Living. Trained at the respective headquarters of these now global organizations in South India—Isha in an idyllic ashram near Coimbatore and Art of Living in an ashram in bustling Bangalore—teachers in Singapore offer week or weekend-long courses on these techniques. Now the Isha program is offered online. Singapore, which is cosmopolitan, deliciously multi-ethnic, and increasingly the model for development in Asia, presents a fascinating case study of new contexts and new packaging for yogic techniques. Residents of this city-state, both ethnic Chinese and Indians, remain open to new practices that offer practical solutions for life in the new fast-paced urban Asia.

Keywords:   Art of Living, Isha Yoga, Sadhguru Jaggi Vasudev, Sudarshan Kriya, Inner Engineering, multi-ethnic, Sri Sri Ravi Shankar
