Guilty Pleasure:
Jack is a former ER and Flight Nurse and has been practicing the Barkan Method for 2 1/2 years. Before that he was an avid weightlifter and competitive bodybuilder. There was a time during his bodybuilding pursuit that he was so musclebound he couldn't even reach to turn the collars down on his own shirt. Touching his toes was unthinkable, and he weighed as much as 270 lbs. Jack's discovery of hot yoga was quite by accident. A friend needed a private lesson partner and Jack wasn't doing anything, so he thought "why not?" After that one class he was hooked. The intensity, heat and concentration required were everything he didn't know he wanted. It changed a 20-year-old exercise habit in an instant. "I needed to be still and to concentrate on something other than my life. I had never been able to sit still without my mind racing. It's still difficult, but I have the tools now. The mat is my escape, my chance to meet like-minded people-incredible people. I've found some wonderful friends in such a short time." Jack hopes to bring power and heat to his classes. He can now turn his collars down on his shirts and touch his toes with ease. His young daughter, however, has a better tree pose.
