FT. Laud Schedule

We first opened in 1983. Back then the school was called Yoga College of India, one of the first Bikram Yoga schools in the world! Jimmy Barkan, founder/owner was Bikram Yoga’s most senior teacher for over 18 years! Barkan and Bikram split in 2002 and Jimmy went on to create his own style 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.
