The Barkan Method was created by Jimmy Barkan, a master yoga teacher who received certification from Ghosh’s College of India in 1981. Barkan established the Barkan Method of Hot Yoga in 2002, along with Barkan Method teacher training programs in Florida, North Carolina, Budapest, Hungary, and Austrailia.
The Barkan Method is a style based on Hatha Yoga that incorporates postures from various other styles of yoga to create a greater variation and range of motion. It is practiced in a heated room, which is believed to help the body stretch. The Barkan Method is believed to improve the health of internal organs like the heart, spleen, and kidney, and make the joints, muscles, tendons, and ligaments stronger. It may also strengthen the mind and help eliminate stress, anxiety, and other mental disorders. This method of yoga can be practiced by people of all ages, abilities, and body types.
