Who is Bikram Choudhury?

Bikram Choudhury

Bikram Choudhury, born in 1946 in Calcutta, began practising yoga at the age of four. At age 12 he became India’s youngest Yoga Champion. In the 1970’s, his guru, Bishnu Gosh, the brother of Paramahansa Yogananada (“Autobiography of a Yogi”), sent him to the “West” to teach Hatha yoga, and to convey his knowledge and to delight and inspire innumerable students of all ages.

Bikram has been teaching his yoga series in Los Angeles for over 30 years. Today, Bikram Yoga is considered to be one of the most successful yoga forms in the USA. Presently there are more than 700 Bikram Yoga schools worldwide, teaching the series of 26 postures in 90 minutes in a heated room.

Our Studio Bikram-Yoga Berlin-Mitte is an independent Yogastudio and is not dependent on any business relationship with Bikram Choudhury or any other person or company.
