She is devoted to helping others thrive, by walking in their true, uncompromised highest self. Jessica is inspired by her own continual transformation in uncovering the fundamental goodness, as well as witnessing the miracles of yoga received by her students. Jessica opened the doors of Evoke with the intention of creating a supportive, energetic community, with opportunities to grow and thrive through the ancient wisdom of yoga. Her love of cycle classes developed when she trained for her first marathon. Jessica believes that movement is medicine, and in her own experience, finds that a good sweat each day gives her the ability to take on what life gives with a sense of grace, grit, and gratitude. With her love of mindful movement, Jessica is also beginning to study the Hakomi Method, and continues to train under Natasha Rizolopoulos, Nicole Clark, as well as Barbara Benagh when she can.

Victor has a 200-hour certificate as a Registered Yoga Teacher with the Yoga Alliance. He completed his 200-hour training at Power Yoga of Cape Cod. A carpenter by trade Victor knows the value of correct alignment and as such his classes are focused on alignment and breath. Yoga is similar to that cartoon image of a carrot on a string on a stick. No matter how far you go there is still something out of your reach! So it is important to breathe and smile where you are at. After all, yoga isn’t really about making some shape with our bodies, it is more about cultivating a sense of well-being in the shape you find yourself in. Victor’s favorite question to ask is “Is there anything, in particular, you’d like to work on in your yoga practice?” If you have any particular poses you’d like to work on or any pain or tension that you would like to work on let him know before class.

I am originally from Connecticut where I graduated from Quinnipiac University with a bachelor’s degree in nursing in 2012. I am a registered nurse in adult and pediatric emergency medicine and currently working at Cape Cod Hospital. Travel nursing led me to living in California for a few years where I began practicing yoga while on an assignment in Santa Barbara. I came to Cape Cod as a travel nurse in 2015 and fell in love with the area. I later decided to make Cape Cod home to be closer to family. I completed my 200 hour Teacher Training at Power Yoga of Cape Cod and graduated in May 2018. I chose to become a yoga instructor with the intent to bring yoga and meditation into the health care system and youth community. I am also a figure skating instructor and have led yoga/meditation classes and camps for youth skaters. Hobbies include hiking, snowboarding, figure skating, traveling and of course yoga.
