Anna Evans, LMT is a highly-experienced massage therapist and yoga instructor who has been working alongside Dr. Tansey for over 10 years, both as an executive assistant and in the care of our clients who are working on their health and well-being goals.
Anna specializes in deep listening to the places in body and mind that are holding tension, inviting her clients to explore a variety of techniques that they find of interest and help, including guided visualization, meditation support, breath work, mindfulness, self-massage and yoga. The focus is on finding methods that work for the client and can be practiced outside of these personalized sessions, honoring the body and mind’s ability and wisdom to create quiet or sacred spaces.
Virtue Medicine is very pleased to be bringing Anna’s services to Zoom just-in-time for the heightened care needs in our community. She has added ample evenings and weekends to her normal weekday hours to optimize access for health care providers and other professionals who are putting in long days of service.
Whether it’s time to disconnect from the urgency of the world, or welcoming oneself back into the safe space of “home” (no matter where one needs to creatively make that space), Anna is a guide for that process with a variety of tools to help access and sustain a deeper state of relaxation and peace.
Each service is tailored to meet you where ever you are. Brand new beginner, curious learner, practiced yogi, or drawn to learn a new tool for managing stress and taking care of yourself while enduring public health crisis. Individual and group options available.

Props to help the poses are easily pulled together with your blankets at home.
Holding Space Groups by Private Zoom
Anna has developed a number of ways to “hold space” in togetherness from her training and life experience. Groups of 3-6 people who wish to share time in community while practicing social distancing can participate together via Anna’s private Zoom invitations in creative connection, including sacred circle, meditation, movement, rituals, optional sharing, and conversation with the intention of holding the steadiness of thriving togetherness even in times of social upheaval.
