Rajashree Choudhury Talks Yoga Therapy
For the first time, Bikram Yoga Burlington welcomes Rajashree Choudhury for a very special event on Sunday April 7th. Rajashree will lead us through a traditional Bikram Yoga class followed by a Q&A on yoga therapy and yoga philosophy. In a separate session, available to all Bikram certified teachers and interested students, Rajashree will deliver a lecture on the Bikram Yoga Pregnancy series.

At the urging of her parents, Rajashree began her yoga practice when she was four years-old. She is a five-time winner of the National Indian Yoga Championship from 1979 to 1983. By age 11, Rajashree won several titles. This experience shaped her life dream of encouraging youth to practice yoga. Born in Kolkata, living in Los Angeles since age 19, Rajashree Choudhury’s background is a true blend of the East and West.

To promote yoga-asana as a sport, Rajashree founded the United States Yoga Federation and the International Yoga Sports Federation. Because of Rajashree’s efforts, the International Yoga Asana Championships is now in it’s tenth year.

Rajashree believes that introducing yoga at an early age helps ameliorate and avoid problems that arise as one journeys through life. With a special focus on the emotional side of yoga, Rajashree advocates yoga’s impact on not only physical health, but also the mind, body and soul. 

Rajashree has a degree in yoga therpay and is certified with the International Association of Yoga Therapists. She travels worldwide to conduct seminars and workshops, host yoga retreats and spread personal development. Inspired by her personal teachers, Dr. P. S. Das and Dr. Kushala Das, as well other great teachers such as B. K. S. Iyengar and Paramahansa Yogananda, Rajashree is led by her heart and motivated by the transformations yoga brings.

In1994, Rajashree co-founded Bikram Yoga’s Teacher Training program, and continues teaching heated hatha yoga..
