“There are moments when, whatever the posture of the body, the soul is on its knees.”
- Victor Hugo
What is Project Posture?
The Anya Mission presents Project Posture as a Mind + Body relief initiative designed specifically for those individuals working in the Public School System or (Non-Profit) Human Services who have dedicated their lives (and hearts) to helping children and adolescents.
Even though therapists, social workers and teachers are the first to acknowledge the importance of self-care this doesn’t always mean they live it in practice. Project Posture offers no cost/low cost wellness programs to bridge the gap between the walk and the talk of healthy living.
We understand that careers in Public Education and Human Services are oftentimes not financially rewarding paths and yet demand stamina, passion and courage. The cumulative effect of front line service, however, can take a toll on energy reserves. Our goal is to provide a safe and reliable space to find respite and replenishment.
Studio Anya’s unique approach to Mind + Body Education is the perfect antidote for the build-up of stress associated with emotional exhaustion and burnout. Our holistic health, fitness and wellness programs build core strength, alleviate empathy fatigue, restore vibrancy and awaken joy. After all, we can only give out what we have inside.
The Project Posture Self-Care Package makes getting in shape more accessible. Find center, let go of stress and look and feel great with the help of the following offerings: free Bodywork Clinics, free guided meditation classes called HEAL, and significant discounts on Studio Anya Private & Group Classes.
Free Bodywork Clinic:
We are constantly bombarded by the noise and haste of modern living. Without even knowing it, our bodies defend us from these intrusions by creating shields and armor. This on-going defense mechanism takes up a lot of energy and leaves a trail of tears of its own. Over time, we get more and more stiff, tight and on guard.
Throughout history, the healing power of touch has played a significant role in every culture. Touch is the first language we learn and plays a significant role in the level of well-being we sustain through out life. It has been shown that gentle touch literally secretes happiness (Oxytocin hormone), soothes the wear and tear of daily stress and restores equilibrium to the whole system. Project Posture makes healing touch more accessible.
Each Month, Studio Anya offers gentle healing touch in the form of a free 30 minute Thai-Bodywork sessions to those front-line Care Providers who give to others on a daily basis. We are so grateful for your dedicated service and would like to offer some TLC in return for all that you do. Email Laura Colón to reserve your spot in the next Bodywork Clinic. Let us know your place of employment so we can verify your hard work!

“With an eye made quiet by the power of harmony, and the deep power of joy, we see into the life of things.” – William Wordsworth
H.armonize E.nergy A.nd L.ight –An integrative method influenced by Reiki and Neuro-muscular therapy, our Heal Workshop focuses on the development of visualization techniques designed to restore and fortify the nervous system. Lying down comfortably on extra cushioned mats, knees supported by a comfy bolster, we settle in for a guided meditation or what many describe as a really awesome nap.
Come early and enjoy some tea, peruse our wellness library or cozy up in the massage chair. Studio Anya exudes an extra special energy on Sunday nights, soft and still, like a gentle embrace emanating from all around.
