Celebrity yoga studio fined by LA court

October 18, 2006 10:45 IST

A Los Angeles court has fined the yoga studio run by renowned Indian guru Bikram Choudhury for violating building and fire regulations, justice officials said.

The court fined Bikram Choudhury Yoga Inc more than 8,000 dollars after the company pleaded no contest to charges including operating without a valid permit.

Choudhury is the founder of 'Bikram Yoga', where practitioners perform yoga in a room heated at 110° Fahrenheit and which is practiced and endorsed by celebrities like Raquel Welch and Julia Roberts.
