Letter From the Director
The Bikram Yoga studio at The Camp is designed to nourish the soul as well as the body. The studio is a place of beauty and authenticity, where you can come and practice the Bikram Yoga technique.
A great deal of thought to the location, design and construction was involved with the overwhelming goal to meet the needs of my students.
As important as the studio environment is, I have also brought in a team of dedicated teachers who are passionate about your experience. All of our teachers have studied with Bikram Choudhury and are certified.
If there is anything we can do to improve your experience, please let us know.
Enjoy the journey of spiritual and physical balance.
Patrice Simon, Director
History of Bikram Yoga
Bikram Choudhury began learning Hatha Yoga poses in his native India at the age of three. At five, he began studying with Bishu Ghosh (Paramahnsa Yoganand's brother) and quickly became a yoga champion.
At age 20, a weightlifting accident crippled Bikram. With the guidance of his guru, Bikram created his 26 posture series that restored his health.
In a United Nation's sponsored research project at Tokyo University, Bikram worked with doctors to prove that yoga regenerates tissues and cures chronic ailments. Combining Eastern discipline and Western medicine, Bikram perfected his comprehensive system suitable for all ages and levels of fitness.
In 1973, at the invitation of President Nixon, Bikram came to the United States and he quickly became the foremost yoga teacher in the West.
Since that time, Bikram has been healing thousands of students and training hundreds of teachers at his school in Los Angeles. Bikram continues to travel the world bringing the benefits of his technique to the masses.
