Who is Bikram Choudhury?

“If you follow my instruction and do my yoga posture Sequence to the best of your ability, you will live a better, healthier and more peaceful life.”


- Bikram Choudhury

Bikram Choudhury is the creator of the magical sequence that is Bikram Yoga and the founder of Bikram's Yoga College of India.


Born in Calcutta in 1946, Bikram began practicing yoga at the age of four with his guru, Bishnu Gosh, becoming a yoga champion aged just 13. Bikram damaged his knee during a weight-lifting accident and was told by doctors that he would never walk again. Refusing to accept the prognosis, he returned to his guru and together, they used the healing powers of yoga to fully rehabilitate Bikram to health.

From Bikram's experience of the healing powers of yoga practice, he went on to devise the 26 posture sequence now known as Bikram Yoga in the 1970s. The practice is now international with a network of teachers, trained only by Bikram himself, charged with enlightening people to the power and benefits of Bikram Yoga. We're delighted that the flame of Bikram Yoga is now been lit in Liverpool.
