First opened in 1983 as a Yoga College of India, one of the first Bikram Yoga schools in the world! Jimmy Barkan was Bikram Yoga’s most senior teacher for over 18 years! In 2002 Barkan and Bikram split and Jimmy went on to create his own style of Yoga called The Barkan Method!!
The Barkan Method is a style of Hatha Yoga that originated from a lineage in Calcutta, India. While the Barkan Method finds its roots from this lineage in Calcutta, it also integrates postures from other styles of Yoga to create variations and even greater range of motion. The yoga classes are practiced in a heated room to stretch and strengthen various areas of the body. The practice brings vital balance and restores all systems to optimal health. Consistency will create a physical, mental and spiritual harmony that will be felt in all areas of the practitioner’s life.
