The Barkan Method of Hot Yoga, South Florida’s premier Hot Yoga Studio opened thirty four years ago today in Fort Lauderdale!! In 1983 it was called Yoga College of India making it one of the first Bikram Yoga Schools in the world! Jimmy Barkan, founder/owner was Bikram Yoga’s most senior teacher for eighteen years. Barkan and Bikram spilt in 2002 and Jimmy then created his own style of Hot Yoga called The Barkan Method!! In 2012 Barkan Method moved to Boca Raton: Boca Location
The yoga asanas are designed to work internally and externally. Internally, improvements to the heart, spleen, kidneys, liver, and intestines are realized through consistent practice. Externally, the joints, muscles, tendons, and ligaments are all made stronger through The Barkan Method.
As in all forms of yoga, the mind is strengthened through the discipline of The Barkan Method, which helps to eliminate stress, depression, anxiety, and other dysfunctional mental disorders. The Barkan Method helps to create a calming of the mind, quieting of the brain’s chatter, and deep relaxation response.
As we strengthen the body and calm the mind, we open ourselves up for a transformational experience. The Intention behind the Barkan Method is to balance and body, quiet the mind and nourish the soul.
Jimmy Barkan’s rich experience in teaching of people of all ages, abilities and body types makes him the perfect instructor to help you reach a new depth in your poses, as well as your consciousness.
