The students claimed that Choudhury founder of , the 26 postures sequence yoga work out, made women brush his hair, give him massages, and even have sex with him, according to reports out this week.  The New York Post exclusively reported that Choudhury, told Sarah Baughn, that he hated his wife so that she would sleep with him.

Baughn, 29, a former yoga instructor, filed a suit in the Los Angeles Superior Court in March.  Her report details how Choudhury pursued her for years and ruined her career as a Bikram yoga teacher when she refused to have sex with him, according to the Christian Post.

Baughn claimed that Choudary has been accused of having sexual relationships with students in the past, but he said 'that they black-mail him'.

Bikram Yoga's president, Peter Stake, published the following press release in regards to the Choudary situation.


This is not the first time the famed yoga guru has been accused of inappropriate behavior. In 2010, a lawsuit was filed against the millionaire after he made some tasteless comments about women while on an instructors retreat, reportedly stating: "Women are b****es and whores. They're here for one thing, and that's to make babies," the LA Times reported.

As Baughn and other accusers claims are investigated Mstarz is sure that more will develop in the case. 

This has been a bad week for yoga, we reported that in an unrelated to Bikram Yoga story, yoga work out gear manufacturers Lululemon has recalled black yoga pants for being "too sheer."
