Bikram Choudhury, the founder of Bikram Yoga, is embroiled in a sex scandal.
A former student of his filed the lawsuit alleging that he sexually harassed her during the course of her study by trying to get her to perform various acts against her will such as giving him personal massages, brushing his hair, and engaging in sexual congress. The lawsuit alleges that Choudhury subjected “women” to this treatment which leaves the door open for other women come forward and join the lawsuit.
The plaintiff Sarah Baughn, age 29, said that Choudhury would tell her of his feelings of disdain for his wife as part of his seduction routine to lure her into an intimate relationship.
“I need someone to spend time with me. To give me massages. To talk to me. To love me. To have sex with me. I need someone to take care of me so I don’t die,” Bikram allegedly told Baughn.
Baughn claims she endured the sexual harassment for years and ultimately ruined her career as a Birkram Yoga teacher.
The former student stated in court documents in that Bikram “”pinned her against the door, and sexually assaulted her by kissing her neck, chest, and face, and grinding his ***** against her leg.”
Baughn’s lawsuit includes detailed descriptions of events she viewed as sexual harassment. One such event was a 2008 Yoga Competition which she lost; the winner of the competition was sharing a hotel room with Choudhury who was a judge in the competition.
Baughn also describes asking Choudhury about allegations of having sex with his female students. He admitted to Baughn he has sex with female students because they threaten to commit suicide if he denies them his affection.
According to reports, this isn’t the first time the yoga instructor has been involved in a sex scandal.
In 2010, Pandhora Williams filed a lawsuit against the millionaire after he made some unsavory comments about women during a retreat.
“Women are b****es and whores. They’re here for one thing, and that’s to make babies,” the instructor reportedly told those in attendance.
