This is a wonderful class choice for the beginner student to start. Developed by Jimmy Barkan, this class is a true evolution of Hot Hatha Yoga practice. One of the nation’s premiere Hot Yoga teachers, Jimmy finds his roots in the tradition of Paramahonsa Yoganandaji & Bishnu Ghosh, the innovator in Hot Yoga and Bikram Choudhury, who brought his gurus style of Yoga to the United States. Bikram taught Jimmy Barkan in California in the early 80’s and considered him one of his most senior teachers.
The Barkan Method finds its roots from this lineage in Calcutta, but 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.
