Zefea had her first experience with yoga at the age of 4 when her parents practiced with renowned teacher Angela Farmer in the Iyengar tradition. In her twenties she trained in different physical exercises like boxing and the combat system Krav Maga. Zefea rediscovered the benefits of yoga when she started practicing Bikram Yoga in her hometown Amsterdam, the Netherlands. Zefea graduated from Bikram’s Teacher Training in 2005. She represented the Netherlands as the Dutch gold medalist three times in the International Yoga Championships, all those years finishing in the world’s top 10.
In 2009 Zefea and her husband Mark Drost founded evolation yoga in a desire to evolve the way the Primary Hot series is passed on and to focus on a collective and community approach. They have conducted hot yoga teacher trainings since. Over 20 trainings and more than 250 trainees later, Zefea feels that they truly have developed an inspiring and effective service. Zefea is thrilled to bring this experience to the next level with the theHotTT and to be working together with so many amazing teachers. In every training she keeps learning and growing herself and aims to improve further on what she can offer her students.
