Denver is packed with food halls and community marketplaces that focus on locally-crafted food and retail. And while they tend to give a nod to the healthy lifestyle, there hasn’t been one that focuses specifically on wellness. That is, until now. Denver, meet Nurture.
Inspired by the success of the food hall concept, Nurture co-founders Kelly Campbell, Nikki Dority, and Peter Strauss wanted to create a space where Denver’s health-conscious crowd could eat, sweat, relax, and shop—a space where you can be nurtured in every sense of the word, all under one roof.
Nurture is taking over a former school at 2949 Federal Blvd. in the Highlands. Come early 2020, the two-story, 20,000-square-foot building will be filled with vendors focused on all things wellness. There’ll be everything from acupuncture to massage along with holistically-minded beauty services and eco-friendly retail. A cafe will serve up healthy bites and a juice bar will press fresh sips.
It’s a place you’ll want to stay awhile, and they’re making it easy to do just that with lockers, showers, and even childcare on site for all to use. To add to the convenience, Nurture will also have its own app. You’ll be able to use it to book classes and services but also to order ahead food and drink. Have your favorite protein smoothie ready after your workout or order a cold brew coffee before you leave your house so that you can be ready to sip while you shop.
Nurture will be anchored by local cycling studio Rhythm Revolution. The brainchild of DJ and fitness guru Jasmine Anderson, Rhythm Revolution is a beat-based movement concept that spent several years spinning both wheels and records in a Park Hill studio, as well as at special events and retreats. With the end of the lease for the Park Hill studio on the horizon, the opportunity to join the Nurture community presented itself, and Jasmine jumped. Closing the doors on Park Hill, she was drawn to the unique concept and collaborative environment of the marketplace. “The owners have a deep-seeded belief in teamwork and elevating each other,” Jasmine told us. “Their vision aligns so well with what I’m doing with Rhythm Revolution and I’m just so excited to be part of it.”
Rhythm Revolution will comprise approximately 1,100 square feet of Nurture’s space and will offer the same lineup of classes that have afforded them such a following—hard-hitting cycling set to heavy beats, either alone or paired with yoga, HIIT, or strength training. You can expect a sweet sound system and intense lighting to add to the full-body and fully-immersive experience.
As of today, Nurture hasn't set an official opening date, but you can stay up to date on their progress—and some sneak peeks of their vendors—on Instagram.
The intentions we set in our daily lives are often methods for healing wounds, whether they’re self-inflicted or have been passed down to us by others. Developing a conscious practice to get rid of negative thoughts or feelings we’re holding onto can help us move in a more positive direction toward letting go, healing, and being present.
Moving intentionally within our bodies allows us to fully notice how they feel so we can acknowledge and target the right areas. Some days we struggle to work hard enough while others, we push ourselves too hard! We do this both in class and in other areas of our life. It's important to remember to understand our bodies’ rhythms or fatigue while making space for our humanness, feelings, or need to be vulnerable.
Here are a few simple guidelines for following intentions during your workout:
Remember that just like in life, taking a moment to pause and build the appropriate foundation will undoubtedly support you to be 100% successful on your journey. At The Dailey Method, we refer to this kind of mindful exercise as a “meditation in movement” and begin our practice with intentions. During the warmup, instructors encourage students to set an intention for their workout, even if it’s just a focus on breath, and then revisit it during their final resting pose. Often, we associate these goals with our Word of the Month, a specific theme to help guide our practice each month. But there are so many intentions to choose from—moving with your breath, moving with grace, forgiving yourself, shining your light out, the options are limitless, and you can alter them each day depending on where you are right here and right now.
“Personally, I am so grateful for this process being part of my Dailey practice,” says Jill Dailey, founder of The Dailey Method. “It is a built-in opportunity for me to stay in the present, and when I wander (because of course I do!) a tool to guide my presence back to the here and now.”
When the workout gets challenging or you feel like giving up at any point during class, set an intention to pause and remember the fact that we are all on this same path, doing this exercise together. You have all the tools you need to be successful—even if it means taking a quick rest or resetting your alignment! Don’t compare yourself to others; just focus on yourself and your goals for the workout. Remember why you’re there.
As you leave class, move with deliberation and show up at your next appointment, event, family gathering, or grocery shopping excursion as the greatest version of you. You just rocked your class and brought effort, strength, perseverance, and commitment. Acknowledge that and bring it with you. Don't forget about the intentions you set during class; figure out how you can apply them to other areas of your life!
