Join us Today at The Barkan Method Hot Yoga School located next door to Whole Foods: Ft. Lauderdale Location ……… FT. Laud Schedule. Jimmy Barkan opened his first Hot Yoga Studio in 1983. Back then it was called Yoga College of India. One of the first Bikram Yoga schools in the world. Barkan and Bikram parted ways in 2002 inspiring Jimmy to create his own interpretation of Hot Yoga called The Barkan Method!
The Barkan Method is a style of Hatha Yoga that originated from a lineage in Calcutta, India. While the Barkan Method finds its roots from this lineage in Calcutta, it also integrates postures from other styles of Yoga to create variations and even greater range of motion. The yoga classes are practiced in a heated room to stretch and strengthen various areas of the body. The practice brings vital balance and restores all systems to optimal health. Consistency will create a physical, mental and spiritual harmony that will be felt in all areas of the practitioner’s life.
