ABOUT BIKRAM CHOUDHURY
Bikram Choudhury began learning Hatha Yoga poses in his native India, at age three. He studied with Bishnu Ghosh and quickly became a yoga champion.
At age 11, he was the youngest contestant ever to win the national India Yoga Competition. Swami Shjivananda declared him “Yogi Raj” (King of the Yogis).
Later in life, a weightlifting accident crippled Bikram. With the guidance of his guru, Bikram created his 26 posture series, which restored his health. In a United Nations sponsored research project at Tokyo University, Bikram helped doctors prove that yoga regenerates tissues and cures chronic ailments.
Combining Eastern discipline and Western medicine, Bikram perfected his comprehensive system, suitable for all ages and levels of fitness.
Bikram came to the United States in 1973 and quickly became the foremost teacher in the West as celebrities, athletes, and others began flocking to him. Since that time he has been healing thousands of students at his school in Los Angeles and traveling the world extensively, bringing the benefits of Bikram yoga to millions of students worldwide.
