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. 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 and he applies this principle of inclusion to all his classes.

Christian Scaraglino

Christian Scaraglino, a New Yorker, is currently on the teaching staff at Hot Yoga Malmö (Sweden). In 2001, he started practicing Bikram’s hot yoga in the New York City’s Theater district and quickly discovered its balancing effects on his Cholesterol and overall health. In the Fall of 2002, Christian completed his 500 hour Teacher Training certification with Bikram Choudhury in Los Angeles. Since then, it has allowed him to practice, teach, compete and judge competitions at many studios around the globe including New York, Paris, Prague and Liège, Belgium where he co-owned a studio for two years.
