I can think of a dozen reasons why Bikram is good for yoga, but dcalvert said it all in the first post. Think about this - Bikram ds a lot of "Rah, Rah, Rah.... (team spirit)." "It's us against the world." and "Everyone is is less than me." Maybe you see this as opposite of union and it is, but team spirit can be a good thing for young people.

Look at football, baseball, hockey, etc. These are sports that can focus a young mind. Yogananda mentioned martial arts and this is also good for all ages. Young people have much energy to be rid of. Why should competitive sport yoga be bad? No reason, but many of us practiced or do practice meditative forms of yoga now.

What would you do is you were young again? Maybe test yourself in a hot yoga studio on a dare? These followers of Bikram aren't bad people. They are usually young yogis experiencing life and making a little noise in the process.

If Bikram charges the most for a yoga teacher course that teaches 26 methods that is good. These people want to give him money. Maybe he can own another new Rolls Royce next month. At worst, he is making money and bragging, but he isn't a bad person.
