My fingers urge with excitement to tell you the wonders Anya has helped me discover! Where to begin? My name is Jeff and I am a huge A.N.Y.A. fan. The mind-body connection has always been fascinating to me, although I sort of fell upon Studio Anya without any knowledge of what I had gotten myself into. In June 2010, I was hired to be an assistant to Tom Burke of the Tom Burke Voice Studio, housed in the back left corner of Studio Anya. It was a dream! I was an actor who landed a steady job, with a highly reputable voice teacher, in a space that had birds! (My first day I could have sworn there were birds flying around. It took me a few days to figure out they were canned.) I knew somewhere in my bones, that this enchanted forest was someplace special. A.N.Y.A or A.pplied N.eo Y.ogic A.warness invites everyone to become their own S.A.G.E. The opportunity to become sensitively aware in a gentle evolution is not always prevalent in this day in age, and for a young boy who still believes in magic, miracles and merriment; Studio Anya and The Sagebook.com has provided a space for an authentic exploration of possibility. I welcome you to help me dialogue about the treasures of the human body, the potential of the human mind and the compassion of the human spirit! It is said that, "At the center of your being you have the answer; you know who you are and you know what you want." - Lao Tzu. If that's true, lets D.I.G. (D.o I.t G.ood) in together!
