Level 2 Creative Vinyasa


This class is taught by:

Ashish Arora

RYT 200
 
 
Ashish grew up in Delhi, India where he briefly practiced yoga in Elementary school and learned Sanskrit in Middle and High school. He did not practice yoga again till he went to a yoga class in January 2015 in his office gym at Nintendo. That's when he realized the possibilities yoga opened up for him, both physically and mentally. The same year he completed his 200-hour Teacher Training at Shakti Vinyasa Yoga, following it up with a 4 month mentoring program. He has also completed Level 1 training with Baron Baptiste and weekend intensives with Anna Forrest (Forrest Yoga) and Kino Macgregor (Ashtanga). After spending 16 years of working as an engineer in the Computer and video game industry, he is currently taking a sabbatical and spending his time practicing/teaching yoga and to travel. He loves to practice different styles of yoga, taking about 12 classes/week across Seattle. In the last year, he has practiced yoga in a few places across the world - Delhi, Bali, Rome, Edinburgh, New York, LA, Boston, Miami, DC and more.
 
 
He likes to practice with a smile and tries to bring his fun personality to his teaching. At the same time, you should come in expecting to push your edge. He would like you to be open to the possibilities which open up on and off your mat when you push that edge. A strong example from his personal life being how yoga helped him get over his fear of water by getting him in control of his breath, which then let him explore scuba diving.

 

He strongly believes that happiness cannot be achieved by just tying it to big goals, but it comes from finding something in the current moment to be happy about and to smile about it. Those moments then go on to make your entire life.

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.
