A similar one was that of Bikram Choudhury's 90-minute yoga classes which transcended from religion to being an almost fanatic cult.

Bikram: Yogi, Guru, Predator has been bankrolled by Sarah Anthony.

Read on about the women who brought down Bikram Choudhury. Sarah Baughn: The First Woman to Speak Up Against Bikram Choudhury Sarah Baughn began to fall in love with Bikram's hot yoga techniques and devoted herself to that life. During one of Bikram's classes, when she was doing a yoga pose resembling a standing split, Bikram came up to her and split her apart even more. After some time had elapsed, during which Sarah reached out to others, who suggested she separate the man from the teacher, she thought maybe Bikram's attention had passed from her. While devoting herself to being the best mother possible, Sarah's daughter told her that she wanted to be just like Sarah, that is, a yoga teacher.
Larissa Anderson: The Woman Bikram Raped While His Family Slept Upstairs Sarah certainly opened the floodgates, and Larissa came forward saying how she was introduced to Bikram's hot yoga, and soon became a part of his inner circle. Larissa grew closer to his family, helping Bikram's children with their homework, eating together and doing lots of yoga. One night at Bikram's house, when his wife had retired, and his children were in bed, Larissa and Bikram were up watching a movie. After the heinous act, he even told Larissa to remain silent and not mention a word of it to anyone since he intended to keep teaching yoga. When Sarah's account started doing the rounds, Larissa knew it was time to speak up. Larissa recounts kissing him on the forehead after the rape, and then going to her room in his house, hoping he did not come in again. While she started the massage, Bikram gradually began to direct her about where to put her hands. Pandhora Williams is a black woman who attended Bikram's teacher training and complained about him not having any filter during the classes. In fact, when Pandhora confronted Bikram about yoga preaching a message of love, she was abused as the teacher said that he was not in the business of selling love. Both Larissa and Sarah decided to take Bikram to court to get justice for the misdeeds against them. Larissa added to this, saying that she wanted the satisfaction of sitting across Bikram in court while exacting justice. He went to the extent of saying that he did not need to rape anyone because women would be lining up to have sex with him from all over the world, as volunteers.
