In the late 1960s, after studying with Bishnu Ghosh for years, Bikram Choudhury distilled this particularly powerful sequence from the broader teachings of yoga and his personal, practical exploration of the health of the human body and mind. With Bikram Yoga, his vision was to maximize the therapeutic benefits for beginners and beyond, to make this yoga accessible as a healing tool for people all over the world.
And we know from our own practice, it works! Even now, the journey of yoga and the lineage continues – one person, one yoga practice at a time. From Paramahansa, to Bishnu, to Bikram, to each teacher, and to every person practicing on their mat.
