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.

Overview of our Hot Bikram Method Yoga Teacher Training Program

Bikram method Hot Yoga teacher training with Evolation Yoga encompasses the traditional 26+2 yoga series but also includes a more in-depth analysis and study of the classic twenty-six postures and two breathing exercises as taught in Hot Yoga studios around the world. When you train with Evolation Yoga, you will be led by senior-level instructors who are passionate about the healing powers of this classic Hot Yoga series. Our Hot Yoga teacher trainings are accredited through the Yoga Alliance and include training materials and supplementary reading lists.

Our trainings consist of daily yoga and meditation sessions; yoga philosophy lectures; in-depth study of posture mechanics (which have led time and time again to deep insights, even for very long time Bikram yoga practitioners), the anatomical insights into the 26 postures, live teaching practices with structured feedback and systematic discussions; recommendations and support regarding how to find and apply for yoga teaching positions around the world. We also include a whole section on the business aspects of yoga studio management and ownership; plus much more.
