About the instructors: Zak Endicott, Lisa Black, and Tate Englund
Zak Endicott has been practicing at Shakti since 2007 and teaching there since 2011. His first exposure to yoga was through meditation which he learned from his father as a young boy, and then later on in high school when he began reading texts like the Bhagavad Gita, furthering his interests in meditation and yoga. Growing up in Ballard, it was a matter of time until Zak dropped into Shakti and began regular daily practice for years to come. Early on, in 2010 Zak completed 200 hour YA training with Baron Baptiste, and continued ongoing mentorship with Lisa Black for years, leading intro series and training to lead other vital programs at Shakti like 40 days, special workshops, and retreats. Over the years Zak continued on to practice and train in many other lineages including many hours practicing Ashtanga with teachers like David Garigues, Kino MacGregor, Troy Lucero, advanced teacher training and ongoing training with master teacher Ana Forrest, and countless other weekend trainings with a wide variety of teachers like Dharma Mittra, Amy Ipolitti, Jason Crandell, and local teachers like Liz Doyle and Jodi Boone.
