Welcome To Nurture

Our beautiful Yoga & Therapy Centre in the heart of Saddleworth

Here at Nurture, we believe in an integrated approach to health and well-being and so promote the importance of caring for mind, body and the earth.

We hold one belief above any other, that we are all intrinsically connected to every other living part of this planet. We all form a unique part of this incredible ecosystem and if we humans care for ourselves and each other, we can help to create a culture that encourages all of us to care for and respect the earth, our home! 

At the core of everything we share, is a hope that we can inspire everybody who crosses our threshold to feel good about themselves and to leave with a knowledge that you have joined a supportive community, committed to creating a better future through caring for ourselves and our planet.

We have carefully crafted a variety of yoga classes, open to everybody and designed to appeal to all tastes and abilities. Our complementary health services are also carefully chosen to meet the needs of mind and body whilst ensuring professional, accessible and ethical care.

We have done our best to create Nurture using non-toxic, re-cycled or sustainable materials where possible. We have a no single use plastic policy and help to preserve our local landscape via our MindfulWild Project.

We look forward to welcoming you to Nurture and hope you’ll find what you’re looking for!

What People Say

“I came to see Shelagh because of terrible lower back and pelvic pain that meant i could no longer straighten up without bending my knees and had got to the point where I could no longer exercise. Even after my first treatment the improvement was amazing and after a few sessions I had more mobility and flexibility then I had had for years. I would recommend Chiropractic to anyone as it has mad such a massive difference for me and the things I can now do.”

Karen Sharma

“Saddleworth has needed a studio like this for years! No detail has been compromised; it’s such a gorgeous and spacious place to practice yoga! Sophie and Shelagh are talented, uplifting women who make the studio even more of a happy place to be in.”

Jessica Lomax

“The most beautiful, serene space. You can feel the love, care and positive energy that has gone into creating such a calming and nourishing atmosphere. So happy and grateful to have a yoga studio like this in Saddleworth. All the love and good luck in the world”

Amelia Lee

“Yoga with Sophie has changed my life. Combining physical exercise with mental relaxation and love for yourself. It is addictive. Thank you Sophie.”

Gaynor O’Ryan

“Sophie is a wonderful teacher with a beautiful way of teaching yoga her classes are both enjoyable and inspirational. ”

Bev Shepherd

“Shelagh gives us a perfect start to the week with her calm, mindful persona. She’s always aware of each one of us and any specific issues there may be within the group, circulating to provide support and advice. Her classes are always well structured and prepared and she teaches us to develop our breathing to calm our mind and raise body awareness to prepare us for our special ‘time out’.”

Jane Ingleby

“Shelagh was my amazing yoga teacher for almost 2 years when she first qualified, and we really miss her classes. She is a fun and very caring person, and that is reflected in the way she teaches. The studio in Saddleworth looks like a lovely place to practice yoga, just wish I lived nearer!”

Bev Carroll

“In July 2017, I was suffering with severe joint pain in knees and back. At 62, I was walking with a stick and felt old, weary and worn out with pain. I was told that I needed both knees replacing and was on the waiting list for these operations. An old friend recommended I see a McTimoney chiropractor and thankfully, I found Shelagh. The results have been amazing. I have thrown away the walking stick, been able to stop taking Naproxen painkillers and have cancelled the knee replacement operations. Thank you so much, I now feel 53 instead of 73 and recommend treatment by a McTimoney chiropractor to all my friends with joint and back issues.”

BUSTING THE MYTH OF PRACTICE MAKES PERFECT!

Hi everyone, hope youre all well and enjoying the sun 🌞 

I havent been here much lately - been preoccupied with clinic and a couple of training courses as well as plans for when we can fully reopen but wanted to share this because social media can so often bombard us with unattainable ideals that can leave us feeling we need to push harder!  

Truth is, we all have physical limitations based upon our own unique skeletal structure! As we train and move, we can learn to acknowlege, respect and honour our own limitations to optimise our movement and health! 

For example, the shape and depth of our hip socket will determine our possible range of motion and therefore our ability to perform certain movements. It is a myth that if you train hard enough and practice for long enough, you can make any shape at all with your body. 

The reality is, if you try to force your body into a shape it is not designed to make, you will suffer degeneration and/or injury. 

You cannot train a St Bernard to win at the Greyhound track. Thank you for this nugget of wisdom @bernieclark 

We are all unique with different needs, so remember that when it comes to the way we move, no size fits all! Explore you. Learn you. Listen to you. Respect and honour you! 

Helping you to explore and understand your own unique structure as well as understanding the role our mind and nervous system play in optimising our physical health and movement underpins my work with patients and students. 

I am not interested in encouraging you towards peak performance, unless thats your thing - in which case well work together to do it sensibly. 

Ordinary people, all shapes and sizes - moving, thinking and feeling well for optimal health. Thats my bag! 

Happy Monday everyone 😊

Just to let you know we are still here guys, we are sorry we have been quiet on these platforms. 

We have been taking our time to work though this strange old year, just placing one foot in front of the other, taking the time to get back on our feet.

Also behind the scenes we have been busy bees, working super hard to get Nurture ready for when we are able to open fully again in May 🤞.
We dont want to give all the secrets away yet but there will definitely be more wonderful classes on the timetable, new nurture team members, new therapy rooms, PLUS LOTS MORE THAT WE ARE KEEPING SECRET YET... Keep your eyes peeled 💕.

All in all, we just wanted to say, we miss you all, we are still here and thank-you for your support. 

Lots of love x

Today we celebrate women.
Our goddesses, sisters, mother's, friends, family and businesses.

Their power, strength, vulnerabilities, passion, courage, tears & laughter.
We celebrate every part of them because well, they are just truly incredible.

Women supporting women, women supporting themselves is a thing of beauty and today we celebrate that, we celebrate women all over the world.

Happy international women's Day
