Mark Drost

Teaching Style

Mark has a teaching style that reflects his 32 years of yoga practice. The first half of his practical experience was centered on meditation. He has an ability to bring a deep internal focus to his classes as he encourages each student to focus on themselves and draw from their own depths to reach their individual goals for each asana.

How Yoga Serves Mark

Coming from a strong practice of meditation, Mark realized very quickly that combining meditation with the Primary Hot series results in incredible healing effects.
