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! Barkan has lead over 30 Level I and over 25 Level II/III teacher trainings with well over 1500 graduates who are now teaching all across the world.

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
