Level 2-3 Creative Vinyasa


This class is taught by:

Jo Parsons

Practicing Bikram since 2002, Jo began to practice power yoga in 2004. After her first Baptiste Power Vinyasa class, she knew she had found something life changing. That began her journey of finding and standing in her own power, and ultimately to teaching others that they can do the same! Yoga ERYT 200 Hour Yoga Alliance Certified, she’s been teaching since 2006. Her understanding of Hot Hatha Yoga, Yin Yoga, and Baptiste Power Vinyasa Yoga in both on how to teach them and how to make adjustments has depth that only the precious currency of time can buy. Jo's ability to connect with her students and understand their suffering, and their triumphs (emotional, physical, and spiritual) is as unique as she is. Jo always stands in her truth and encourages those who take her classes to do the same. She is a bright, shining light, and has been described as authentic, wise, funny, encouraging, and most of all loving. Having completed teacher trainings with Baron Baptiste, and an extensive hands-on assisting program with Lisa Black (TAP), Jo is also inspired by Gregor Singleton, Patrick Grey, Bernie Clark, Shiva Rea, and Bryan Kest. She brings a richness and loving nurturing presence to any yoga environment and is excited to share her love of yoga with all of you!

Zak Endicott

Zak is a dynamic, motivating human being who stands for freedom, and unconditional love. He was born to spread light and to help others turn on their own inner light. Discovering the yoga path has opened his mind and heart up to growth, healing and transformation, and his life has become an exciting and fulfilling adventure ever since. He believes that the modern day yoga movement is in truth a peace movement and it is the call of the people saying that we want to live, love and believe freely and in honesty, while taking care of each other and the planet we live in. Together we make a difference. Every yoga class you attend is an affirmation that the world is a better place.

Zak completed level 1 and level 2 trainings with Baron Baptiste, has studied hands on assisting extensively, and is in ongoing mentorship with Senior Baptiste Yoga Instructor Lisa Black. He is currently studying ashtanga yoga under the guidance of Troy Lucero and is also studying Forrest yoga and is enrolled for Advanced Teacher Training with Ana Forrest in September of 2014. Other master teachers he is studying with this year include: Edward Clark, Jason Crandell, Kathryn Budig, Kino MacGregor. Zak is E-RYT 200 hours with yoga alliance and soon to be Baptiste Certified.

Zak currently leads Shakti’s Introductory Series, and Teacher Mentorship Program on Tuesdays 7:15 PM at Shakti Bellevue, and on Thursdays at 7:15 PM at Shakti Seattle. Leading beginners to discover this practice while helping new teachers discover their voice and uncover their power is a passion for him. Intro series is his favorite way to bring yoga to the people.

“Truth and love can and will set you free if you just ask. Come check it out, we’re having fun!”
