I have heard people refer to HOT YOGA as TRENDING YOGA! This is so far from the truth. Our tradition is not synonymous with BIKRAM or BIKRAM YOGA. Bikram was the first to introduce Hot Yoga to this country back in the early 70’s before most people in the west even knew what yoga was. But the real Guru behind this lineage is Bikram’s teacher, Bishnu Ghosh. Bishnu Ghosh’s Guru was Paramahansa Yogananda, who also happened to be his older brother. Our tradition/lineage goes back. My first teacher was Bikram but my Guru is Yogananda. So the Barkan Method, is also a big part of HOT YOGA! A Lineage dating back to the 1700’s!!
