Starting May 13, The Scriven Arts Colonywill offer free one-hour yoga classes each Saturday at 9 am. Set in a charismatic circa 1790 barn, the classes will be taught by Jade Badger, a one-time Gilmanton resident now moving back to town as she and her new husband, Bobby, build a home on Crystal Lake.

Currently a teacher in training at Yogaworks, in Boston, Jade has been practicing yoga for 17 years. Her classes will integrate Hatha and Vinyassa Flow as they focus on deepening the connection between mind, body, and breath. "It's great to be back in Gilmanton,” she says. “I hope my class will bring together yogis of all abilities.” 

Jade is an avid distance runner. Her son, Beck, is one of New Hampshire’s top high school swimmers, and her son, Bode, is an award-winning skier. 

If you have a yoga mat and props, please bring them. The Scriven Arts Colony will have a small batch of mats and props on hand for people who don’t have any.

Donations are encouraged but not required.
