VIDEO: Women Accuse Bikram Yoga Leader of Rape

Bikram Choudhury, founder of the über-popular Bikram Yoga, has been in hot water lately. In the past year, Choudhury’s been hit with five accusations of sexual assault and rape by women who attended his teacher trainings. Just last month, Vanity Fair published a scathing exposé revealing what really goes on at these two-month long sessions. (Hint: They aren’t nearly as zen as one might think.) And now, there’s this: On Tuesday, ABC’s Nightline interviewed three of the women who’ve brought charges against Choudhury.

What these women have to say about the yoga master is not pretty. Watch for yourself.
