Meet Evolation Yoga Founders
Evolation was founded by husband and wife team Mark Drost and Zefea Samson in 2009. Mark spent 6 years as a senior member of the Bikram training staff. Prior to his time with the Bikram organisation, he practiced and studied in the Yogananda / Ghosh lineage for over 20 years. Zefea has been on the yoga path since the age of 5 and competed in the top 10 at the International Yoga Asana championships for 4 years. They created evolation to provide a comprehensive, inclusive, and intimate training experience for students who wanted to study the 26+2 Hot Yoga series created by Bikram Choudhury, but without the associated attachments.
