Bikram Yoga was created by Bikram Choudhury. Bikram was born in India and began studying yoga at age three with Bishnu Ghosh, one of the greatest physical culturists of our time. By 13 he was the youngest National India Yoga Champion and was undefeated for the next three years. At the age of 20 Bikram shattered his knee in an accident. With the aid of Bishnu Ghosh, Bikram embarked on a vigorous yoga rehabilitation that eventually led him to design his famous 26 posture series, which he perfected during a three-year relationship with western doctors and scientists at the Tokyo University Hospital. Bikram has been called the world's foremost and most knowledgeable Hatha yoga teacher. His method of yoga is currently being taught all over the world by instructors trained by him at his world renowned Bikram Yoga College of India located in Los Angeles, California.
