The Monadnock Region is rich in spectacular healers and a vibrant spiritual and wellness community. But it lacks a hub that successfully unites these powerful healing arts, advocates for the talents and services of the gifted, and connects them in a meaningful way to the community who need them.
Which is why we (Brianna Graves and Ivor Edmonds, read our bios below) are opening a whole body wellness collective and creative healing arts studio in the Monadnock Region. We call it "Sága."
The Sága Studio will offer yoga, mat pilates, qigong, reiki meditation, dance and fitness, sound healing and drumming classes, as well as workshops that share collective knowledge and wisdom around nutrition, art, essential oils, pre/postnatal guidance, writing, art and more! The Sága Collective of healers will knit together the heart of this region, making resources easy to find and collaborations between students and the Collective members possible in an "all are welcome" studio space.
If you think that our area would benefit from something like this, we humbly ask for your support at any level to realize this dream. ___________________________________________ PRE-BUY YOUR CLASSES NOW! ___________________________________________

We don’t regard your generosity as charity or just a donation, and we hope you don't either. We think of it as a pre-payment for classes and services that will allow you to become a part of our studio community the moment we open our doors. (Please see below for the credits we will offer based on donation level.) Spreading the word to others is also incredibly valuable.
I cannot wait for the day we excitedly welcome our community of supporters—both those who help to lay the first bricks of Sága's foundation here, and those who will join us every day from here forward—and thank you for considering being a part of this exciting development for our community!
Will you help us spark the Sága Studio and Collective?

If you would be interested in teaching a class at the Sága Studio, please reach out, as well. ___________________________________________
