Sexual harassment lawsuit filed against Bikram Yoga founder Bikram Choudhury

A 29-year-old woman has filed a sexual harassment lawsuit against Bikram Choudhury, the founder of the popular Bikram Yoga.

Sarah Baughn claims that Choudhury, 67, repeatedly pursued a sexual relationship with her for several years and then sexually assaulted her.

According to the complaint, at a yoga teacher training session at a Bikram center in Los Angeles, Choudhury, “pushed her down toward the floor after pulling her arm and leg apart and opening her body. Defendant Bikram Choudhury then pressed his body into hers, and began whispering sexual things to her until she collapsed into sobs.”

Baughn alleges that Choudhury tried to sabotage her Bikram yoga career in retaliation after she refused to respond to his “repeated demands for sex.”
