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 opened his mind and heart to growth, healing and transformation; and his life has become an exciting and fulfilling adventure ever since. He believes that today’s yoga movement is the call of people saying we want to heal, live, and love deeply. Together we make a difference. Every yoga class is affirmation that the world can be a peaceful place.
Zak is E-RYT 200 with the Yoga Alliance. He completed Level 1 and Level 2 training with Baron Baptiste in 2010 and advanced teacher training with Ana Forrest in 2014. He teaches workshops and retreats locally and internationally, and facilitates many Shakti programs including Shakti’s 200 hour Yoga Teacher Training and Teacher Mentorship Program (TMP). In addition, Zak currently leads Shakti’s Introductory Series on Tuesdays at Shakti Bellevue and on Thursdays at Shakti Seattle.
In his personal practice, Zak studies and practices Ashtanga yoga, a more classical form taught traditionally by Sri Pattabhi Jois in Mysore, India, and Forrest yoga, a powerful and healing, contemporary style created by Ana Forrest. He weaves these two influences skillfully into his classes and programs, combining classical practices, along with modern insight and adaptations. Classes with Zak are fun, potent, and unique.
