Evoke Yoga

Evoke Yoga Teachers

  Just a guy with a weird brain! As a child, I struggled to hit developmental milestones involved with speech and motor skills. Some of my earliest memories involve Obsessive-Compulsive patterns of behavior, a disorder I was eventually diagnosed with during my adolescence. The majority of my life has been spent in fear: fear of my thoughts, fear of what mistake I may or might have made.

               Although I have been privileged with a loving, supportive family and knowledgeable therapists; I would not be here today if it wasn’t for my mindfulness practice. Learning to witness my thoughts taught me that they weren’t in my control. Learning to inhabit my body through sensory awareness taught me how to return to the moment, the only one we ever have.

               Having taken ownership of my own mindfulness practice in what is an ever-unfolding process, I’ve created this space in order to help others do the same. What does it mean to take ownership of your practice? Asking the necessary questions to understand how and why one cultivates awareness. Customizing your practice for the time, style, and intensity that fits you. And finally, making it a joyful experience of exploration and discovery that you can carry with you throughout your day.

               I do not claim to be an expert meditator or life coach; I am in practice just like anyone reading this. My joy comes from facilitating connection, connection to self, others, and our environment. Thank you for sharing this time with me, please feel free to reach out with any questions that may arise :)
Jane has been practicing hot power yoga for ten years. It wasn’t love at first sight, but her practice has grown to become an integral part of her life. Jane completed her Yoga Alliance 200 RYT in May 2016, which was the next step in deepening her practice. She prefers using Baptiste sequencing as a foundation for her all-level vinyasa flow classes. In her classes, Jane hopes to help free students from their expectations and through mindfulness and levity, guide them toward finding their true potential – on and off the mat.
Tiana began her yoga journey in 2017, but it wasn’t until the following Fall that her practice started to become a regular part of her life. After struggling with depression for years and normally using the gym as an escape, she realized how beneficial yoga was to both her mental and physical health. She learned from connecting breath to movement in the yoga flow how to use this skill to create mental space and clarity off the mat too. She felt as if she had finally found what sparks the light inside her and realized she wanted to help others ignite their own lights. She attended The Heron Dance, Yoga, and Meditation Studio for her 200-Hour Teacher Training and received her certification in the Fall of 2020. Tiana loves lots of styles of yoga but her favorite to teach is a Vinyasa (flow) with a focus on mindfulness and mind/body awareness. She hopes to help guide her students to cultivate curiosity throughout their practice as they get to know their bodies and mind better.  Josh Maloney teaches at Evoke in Hyannis and for the Veterans Yoga Project. Service is my passion, and I dedicate myself to the service of others in my community. Josh served in the active and reserve Army from 2008 to 2018 and was a civilian police officer from 2011 until 2017. His journey through trauma had led him to nature, yoga, and mindfulness. Josh’s drive for service leads him to share the skills he has obtained, leading to his life worth living.  Currently, he attends Cape Cod Community College in the Environmental Science field and works for the USDA for forest health. He has completed a 16-hour Restorative, and Trauma-focused training called Unwinding Patterns. Through the Veteran’s Yoga Project, he has completed a 15-hour Mindful Resilience Training and his 200-hour Mindful Resilience Yoga Teacher Training. When he is not immersed in yoga, he can be found hiking in the woods with his dogs or kayaking on the water.
