The Request for Bikram to Step Down in Respect of Ethics and Yoga

This petition had 1,376 supporters


In light of the mounting allegations of sexual and ethical misconduct, we are demanding that Bikram Choudhury resign as CEO of Bikram Yoga Inc., and request that his name, image, and person be removed from the brand. We strongly believe in the yoga we teach; it is a unique and important part of the yoga tradition that has enriched countless lives. However Bikram Choundhury’s presence is incompatible with maintaining the open, safe, and financially stable community that we as teachers, studio owners and students require.  He has lost our trust as a leader, and accordingly can no longer function as an effective teacher, trainer of teachers, or figurehead for this community. This is not a decision that comes easily, however it is one we feel is necessary for us to move forward.
