Disturbing self expose!!: Bikram Choudhury, 72, on claims of sexual assault -shows his misogynistic chauvinistic self in video “I try to kill them. They don’t die. I own– I torture them.”

Real Sports Correspondent Andrea Kremer set out to India to interview Choudhury, and in the process gave us a peek into his infamous yoga teacher training, which is, yes, everything you’ve ever heard it to be: grueling, strenuous, exhausting, degrading.

Tales of sleep deprivation, shouting, name-calling, ridicule over weight, size or ability, and encouraged guru adulation all check out. How could this man sustain such methods? How can people still fawn over him and be drawn to his violent language and teaching style?

Here are some of the most disturbing quotes from the Real Sports interview:

On Bikram Yoga and Choudhury’s methods:

Bikram Choudhury: “This yoga worse than cocaine. Because you can get rid of cocaine, but once you used to this yoga, you can’t stop. Because nothing in this world makes you feel better than this yoga.”

Bikram Choudhury: “I try to kill them. They don’t die. I own– I torture them.”
HBO’s Andrea Kremer:  “And you have to do that? You have to torture them?”
Bikram Choudhury: “I love it.”

Andrea Kremer:  “What are some of the rules that you have?”
Bikram Choudhury: “Number one: You have to forget who you are.”
Andrea Kremer:  “You’ve even said something along the lines of, ‘I implant my mind in your brain.’”
Bikram Choudhury: “Yes. My way or highway. You don’t like it? Get the fuck out of here.”

Andrea Kremer:  “You can be pretty harsh. You never have any regrets about any of the things that you say?”
Bikram Choudhury: “Of course not. Why should I? I have to yell, scream, shout. ‘You fat ass. What the fuck’s wrong with you? What’s wrong with you? You don’t listen to me. You dumb– you dumb fuck.’ Because she doesn’t listen.”

On Bikram Yoga’s near-miraculous powers:

Bikram Choudhury: “I cure Parkinson’s disease, AIDS, cancer. Doctor knows very little about human body.”
Andrea Kremer:  “You know more than doctors?”
Bikram Choudhury: “Million times, billion times. I teach doctors. I don’t go to doctors. Every doctor in the world, they come to me.”
