Janet Clark M.D., a practicing physician in Iowa City, graduated The Barkan Method Hot Yoga Level I Teacher Training in the spring of 2004. She began teaching the anatomy sessions for the Level I Trainings in 2005.
Dr. Clark’s understanding and expertise of both The Barkan Method of Hot Yoga and anatomy makes her uniquely qualified for this program. Her approach is very beginner friendly and fun! Janet also teaches a Hot Yoga Anatomy class during the training so students can directly apply the information.

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
RAM 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.
