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.
Zefea teaches a strong class with great emphasis on alignment and communication. She makes sure each student sees the basic yet dynamic focus of each posture every step of the way.
How Yoga Serves Zefea
When Zefea can fit her practice in- between being a mom, business entrepreneur, teacher trainer and instructor- she immediately feels more centered and balanced. She copes better with the daily challenges of life. She admits to being more efficient and happier with every facet of her life! “It feels like I sweat out all of my obstacles during hot yoga, so that I can become a better version of myself”
Words of Wisdom for Students
One of Zefea’s teachers shared with her that “Yoga is the practice of of finding peace and comfort in an uncomfortable situation” If you can do that for 60 or 90 minutes in a hot and sweaty yoga room, you have something that you can apply wherever you go and whatever you to for the rest of your life.
