With all of Betsy Rabold’s plans for community involvement in the future, the original My Father’s Garden 800-square-foot space on Union Street was not big enough. She searched around for a while and settled on a spot almost twice the size at 201 Mill St.
“I knew I wanted to do more for the community. I wanted to offer more options,” she said. “I was just so limited on space that I couldn’t.”
The new spot features a spa/oxygen bar/foot detox area, a separate massage room with a sauna, two classroom spaces for yoga classes, private sessions and health and wellness classes, and there’s a courtyard for events such as Party on the Patio during warmer months. There’s also an expanded front parking lot and a full kitchen.
“The possibilities are endless,” Rabold said. “People did not feel like they had a place to park (before.) I think it’s going to be huge for us. I think we will get so much exposure.”
The location is opposite from the site for Grand Junction Plaza, and Rabold said she believes that will bring in foot traffic.
Although she moved into the location late last month, the garage area to be used for yoga classes still needs some updates and should be finished by mid-January.
