Join us May 14th through May 20th, 2017 for a 51 hour Hot Vinyasa Teacher Training program with Jimmy Barkan.
Jimmy Barkan is a master yoga teacher certified by Ghosh’s College of India, Calcutta, India in 1981. He is considered to be one of the pioneers of yoga in the United States, practicing long before yoga became popular and mainstream. This training is Jimmy’s first in NYC and Bikram Yoga NYC is pleased to be hosting the Barkan Method Hot Vinyasa Teacher Training in our studios.
Hot Vinyasa is a vigorous class, combining upper body strength, flexibility and cardio and is designed for students of all levels seeking a challenge. Postures are linked together and move smoothly from one pose into the next. You will develop core strength, upper body strength, flexibility in the shoulders, legs and spine plus improved concentration in this class. Challenging, therapeutic and fun. The Barkan method combines many of the familiar Bikram Method poses with Vinyasa flow.
