According to Business Insider, hot yoga has gone into the deep freeze with a Chapter 11 bankruptcy filing.

Bikram yoga is a style of yoga that's typically practiced in room hotter than 95 degrees.

Bikram, and hot yoga more generally, became a national trend roughly 15 years ago. Bikram Choudhury Yoga Inc.

listed more than $16 million owed in legal judgments, many apparently related to founder Bikram Choudhury's alleged sexual misconduct. The filing indicates the studio owes $5.

1 million to Petra Starke, a former White House lawyer who also served as CEO of Bikram's Yoga College of India.

Choudhury, Starke said, held meetings in his bedroom and called people "bitches" and "white trash.

" Creditors also include Miki Jaffa-Bodden, who was awarded $7.

4 million in a sexual harassment lawsuit against Choudhury.

Jaffa-Bodden said in a civil complaint that Choudhury fired her when she did not help him cover up another woman's rape allegation.

Jaffa-Bodden also said Choudhury sexually harassed her and tried to get her to stay with him in a hotel suite.

Choudhury has denied all the sexual misconduct claims and is disputing judgments against him..
