The Barkan Method is a style of Hatha Yoga that originated from a lineage in Calcutta, India. Jimmy Barkan, founder/owner was first certified by Ghosh’s College of India from Calcutta, India and was Bikram Yoga’s most senior teacher! 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.
