Revealed: The Founder of Bikram Yoga is a Total Douche

Revealed: The Founder of Bikram Yoga is a Total Douche

I’d heard the horror stories.

A close friend I’ll call “Pete” was unlucky enough to show up to a Venice, CA yoga studio on a day his holiness Bikram Choudhury appeared just long enough to lead a class (and rub up on the female students as they posed in awkwardly exposing positions). Decked in a shimmering Speedo and an over-inflated ego, he ruthlessly pushed the class through endless grueling asanas in the sweltering heat. The next day, Pete had red burn marks under his eyes from the ordeal. Who knew you could actually burn from the inside?

And now, there’s more than just anecdotal evidence of Birkam’s utter douche-baggery. As you can see in the latest Dikipedia video entry from HuffPost, the guru truly makes a mockery of everything yoga stands for, like mindfulness, good health and enlightenment.

From the fleet of luxury cars to rape allegations, see the truth about Bikram right here:

Shocking, no? My advice: Stay as far from this “guru” as you can.

Note: Please keep comments peaceful and family friendly.

    The world is awash (and always has been) with charlatans, liars, double-speakers, people who speak with forked tongue, snake oil salesman, duplicitous do-gooders , frauds and cheats. These same folks also quite often are also religious leaders, spiritual leaders, politicians, CEO’s, charitable fund administrators, priests, ministers (did I say politicians?), church founders, self-proclaimed saviors and guys in Cleveland who keep girls in the basement. No one should be shocked or surprised.

    But the fault is not theirs. It is OURS, for propping them up, failing (after centuries) to spot them sooner and sending them money to finance their nauseating unethical behaviors. WE, you and me, let them get away with this kind of disgusting crap, over and over, and then we act surprised and alarmed when the raft or uglies rears its’ head.

    That’s what shocks and surprises me. Our gullibility rating is off the scale.

      Hi Ivan,

      That’s a good point. Nobody should be held on such a pedestal, anyway. It seems to bring out the worst behavior in some people!

    Awesome blog! Do you have any helpful hints for aspiring
    writers? I’m hoping to start my own site soon but I’m
    a little lost on everything. Would you advise starting with a free platform like WordPress or go for
    a paid option? There are so many options out there that
    I’m totally overwhelmed .. Any recommendations?
