Meet the instructors for the Hot Yoga Teacher Training in Oahu, Hawaii



Elias a life-long competitive athlete and avid surfer found Hatha yoga in the early 90’s. At this time Elias’ body was showing serious signs of breakdown due to years of wear and tear and a variety of injuries. His body needed help. Elias discovered that Yoga offered deep healing benefits to a body and mind that was locked in a state of chronic stress. He experienced a palpable sense of liberation that he did not find in his sitting meditation practice. Yoga became his physical practice, and meditation, which led him to his first yoga teacher training, Bikram’s Beginning Yoga in 2003.

Since then, Elias has eagerly accrued numerous certifications and has trained with hatha yoga masters such as; Rajashree and Bikram Choudhury (Bikram yoga), Ana Forrest (Forrest Yoga), Mark Whitwell (Heart of Yoga), Baron Baptiste (Baptiste Power Yoga), Brian Campbell (Body Work Yoga) and Duncan Wong (Yogic Arts) to name a few.


Zefea Samson

Zefea had her first experience with yoga at the age of four, when her parents practiced with the renowned teacher Angela Farmer in the Iyengar tradition. She graduated from Bikram’s teacher training in 2005 and represented the Netherlands as the Dutch gold medalist three times in the international yoga championships, all those years finishing in the world’s top ten. In 2009 Zefea and her husband, Mark Drost, founded evolation in a desire to evolve the way the primary hot series is passed on and focus on a collective and community approach. They have conducted hot yoga teacher trainings since. Over 100 trainings and more than 1000 trainees later, Zefea feels that they truly have developed an inspiring and effective service. Zefea is thrilled 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.


Mark Drost

Mark, along with his wife Zefea, is the co-founder of evolation yoga. He has been studying yoga, the philosophy of yoga, and meditation for his entire adult life. He has been practicing Bikram Yoga for over 20 years and started teaching in 2001. He has taught in hundreds of studios around the world and mentored several hundred teachers. He has founded or co-founded many studios.  His inspiration for his yoga journey is to create union in the lineage of Paramhansa Yogananda. Mark brings his 35 years of experience in this tradition to his teaching. He applies this principle of inclusion to all his classes, in which he enriches the heated hatha yoga espoused by Bikram Choudhury, with a deeper focus on meditation and breathing.
