Who is Bikram?
Yogiraj Bikram Choudhury is the founder of the worldwide Yoga College of India™. Born in Calcutta in 1946, Bikram began practicing yoga at the age of four with India’s most-renowned physical culturist at that time, Bishnu Ghosh, the younger brother of Paramahansa Yogananda (Author of the most popular book on Yoga, The Autobiography of a Yogi, and founder of the Self-Realization Fellowship in Los Angeles). Bikram practiced Yoga at least four to six hours every day at Ghosh’s College of Physical Education in Calcutta. At the age of thirteen, he won the National India Yoga Championship. He was undefeated for the following three years and retired as the undisputed All-India National Yoga Champion.
At seventeen, an injury to his knee during a weight-lifting accident brought the prediction from leading European doctors that he would never walk again. Not accepting their pronouncement, he had himself carried back to Bishnu Ghosh’s school, for he knew that if anyone could help to heal his knee, it was his teacher. Six months later, his knee had totally recovered. Ghosh was a celebrated physical culturist and the first to scientifically document Yoga’s ability to cure chronic physical ailments and heal the body.
After being sent by his guru to teach Hatha Yoga to sick people, Bikram realized that it would be impossible to help everyone individually. He later devised the 26 posture sequence to help people regardless of their disease or condition and also to work as preventative medicine. This 26 postures sequence, called Bikram’s Beginning Hatha Yoga Class has a profound healing power on your body and mind. He founded Bikram’s Yoga College of India in Beverly Hills, California in 1974. Bikram has brought health and healing to millions of people around the world including many celebrities and professional athletes.
