NUR Space Wellness Sanctuary in Hastings-on-Hudson, Expands Virtual Groups and Classes

As our physical social circles get smaller, we need to enhance access to support for making empowered physical and mental wellness choices. To that end, NUR Space—a gathering space for parents, expectant parents, wellness practitioners, caregivers and anyone in search of positive, wellness-centered community— is offering more virtual groups and classes, often for free or at very low cost.
Director Nuranisa Rae founded NUR Space in Hastings-on-Hudson, as a place where people could come together to discuss ideas surrounding conscious health, pregnancy, birth and postpartum concerns. She says her calling to open NUR Space came from her birth work as the owner of NUR Midwifery, and from being raised with a strong sense of community. Her NUR Space team includes Cabiria Dougherty, is a local mom and certified lactation counselor, and Caryn Davis, is a local mom and former New York City teacher.
NUR Space also provides a platform for people to start their own meet-ups and to host workshops and classes, and that mission is continuing online. Practitioners are invited to submit workshop proposals at
“In these difficult and distant times, that community is more important than ever,” Rae says. “NUR Space offers virtual groups and classes on positive birth, breastfeeding, natural parenting, pelvic floor therapy, parenting support and more. Our events are ongoing throughout each week and month.”
