"Jimmy I wanted to tell you how grateful I am for choosing your teacher training!

In the 10 years since, I have learned I could not have made a better choice. You developed not only an excellent practice, but really teach us how to teach. I get so much positive feedback from my students and am often told that I am the best teacher they have ever had - and I attribute that greatly to you! It is the Barkan Method and your emphasis on teaching that really set me up for success to thrive in this field. Thank you so much."

When you join this program you get to take advantage of Jimmy’s forty-years experience in Hot Yoga!

Jimmy Barkan was a pioneer in the Yoga industry. He opened his first Yoga studio in 1983 and soon became Bikram Yoga’s most senior teacher. In 2002 Jimmy created his own style and approach simply called: The Barkan Method of Hot Yoga.

"The Barkan Method teacher training is excellent, and I'm so glad I took the plunge. Jimmy is kind and generous with his time and expertise, and the training is full of from-the-heart instruction."

He encourages you to find your own voice and carefully coaches you to develop your individual style. I opted for the online training, as the timing of it fit much better into my life while working full time. The tutorial videos for each posture are gold, and I appreciated being able to go back and watch them again and again. I will certainly be taking advantage of the lifetime access as my teaching career progresses. The website and system to submit homework and review feedback is easy to use. The weekly live sessions were great - so informative and it was nice to connect with others in the program, especially those at different stages in the training and in their teaching. At the end, I felt prepared to teach my first class, and it went great.

Jimmy will coach you personally and help you find your authentic voice.

The National Institute of Mental Health states fear of public speaking is the most common phobia ahead of death, spiders, or heights and affects about 73% of the population. Teaching Yoga can be very intimidating, people tend to hide behind the instructions and not let their own personality shine through. My expertise having taught Yoga since 1981 across the world is to help find your own unique authentic voice. To help get over being self-conscious and insecure. I received my Bachelors Degree in Fine Arts from New York University and continue to pursue my original dream singing and performing across South Florida. My extensive experience teaching Yoga along with performing on stage helps direct Yoga teachers to become the best version of themselves.

“I love your classes! You are so passionate and it comes through in every class. I have to credit you for that Jimmy“

Being naturally shy myself, I don’t know what my teaching would look like or where I’d be without your encouragement to find my own voice, be myself and not copy someone else. It has been fundamental to the way I teach - And has found its way into all other aspects of my life with my confidence in my communicating in public, for work and at home; and the service projects I do at church and in the community.

Reader: the online training and classes are something I refer to weekly, if not daily, to learn and continue to learn key aspects of teaching and alignment/modification from Jimmy. Love and gratitude for all your teachings - and sharing YOUR passion.

"I was absolutely thrilled to be able to participate online with Jimmy for my 300-hour teacher training and this course enabled me to do the training from the comfort of my home and the weekly group meetings were super efficient and helpful.

I loved so many things about the training -especially the sessions on “Finding Your Voice “ and when Jimmy would help us see how to improve postures.

I feel more confident teaching postures to all levels even if I cannot do them myself."
