Bikram Choudhury began studying hatha yoga at the age of four. His physical fitness guru was Bishnu Ghosh, brother of Parmahansa Yogananda (founder of The Self-Realization Fellowship). At 12, Bikram was the youngest-ever national yoga champion of India, holding the title three consecutive years until his guru asked him to stop competing for the sake of the other participants. Bikram went on to pursue an athletic career as a marathon runner and a champion weight lifter, setting world record lifts and competing in the 1964 Olympics in Tokyo.
