Teaching yoga teachers is something we can not take for granted. It is a responsibility that can not be taken lightly. There are too many teacher trainings programs out today lead by instructors with limited experience. This is what sets The Barkan Method apart. Jimmy has been practicing since 1980, was the only teacher allowed to certify Bikram Yoga Teachers besides Bikram! Jimmy started his own style of Hot Yoga called The Barkan Method back in 2002 and began his very own teacher training program after 22 years of teaching!

Level I and Level II Continuing Education Requirements
In order to keep your Barkan Method Certification current all graduates are required to participate in one CONTINUING EDUCATION PROGRAM at least every other year. The program must be conducted by Jimmy. Regular classes with Jimmy do not count towards your continuing education requirements. The required programs include posture and teacher clinics. The most important and effective continuing education programs are the Level II/III Teacher Trainings. We recommend that you participate in one Level II program per year. Returning graduates of Level II training participate at half price.
Re-visiting at least 2 posture clinics with Jimmy Barkan (or a total of 4 hours at the Level I Training Posture Clinics) will also count and your participation is always welcome and free of charge. Graduates are required to make a reservation in advance when they will be attending the Level I Clinics.
Testimonials from Barkan Method Trainees:
This journey of enlightenment is a gift. You are entrusting us with your life’s work, almost 40 years of experience, effort and wisdom. The atmosphere is extremely friendly and we all casually converse but this does not detract from the significance of the situation. We are choosing to accept a great responsibility. From my heart, from a place of pure light, I thank you….January 2017
I truly enjoyed my Barkan teacher training. The program was great because I didn’t just learn the postures and sequence but I learned how to teach effectively. In addition to the postures, I also learned about human anatomy, history and lineage of the style of yoga I practice which adds immense value to my practice. I love knowing the history and lineage because it allows me to convey to others how the yoga has been used historically and why someone would want to take up this yoga practice. This program was great, it fostered a strong connection between the trainees and to Jimmy Barkan, I truly had a wonderfully transformative experience! December 2016
Absolutely a life changing experience! Barkan Method teacher training will change your life and the way you practice and teach yoga….July 2016
