Barkan and Bikram spilt in 2002 and Jimmy went on to create his own style called The Barkan Method:
What differentiates The Barkan Method from Bikram or other forms of Hot Yoga?
The Barkan Method is built on many of the poses and philosophies of Bikram Choudhury and Bishnu Ghosh, but integrates postures from other styles of yoga. Jimmy has been teaching yoga since 1981. He has found that even though consistency is important to measure results, daily variations are necessary to challenge, excite and help students become unlimited in their practice. There are many alignment differences between Barkan & Bikram as well: Barkan does not believe in “Locking the Knee”, and crunching into the lower back!!
