Betsy Rabold is all about natural health remedies, yet she disagrees with the concept that it has to be expensive. April 6 will be the first day, and the yoga classes will be offered Wednesday and Sunday throughout April.

If all goes well, the yoga trial period may become permanent. Beginner classes will be 7 to 8 p.m. on Wednesdays and more of a moderate skill level class will be held 4:30 to 5:30 p.m. on Sundays.

“I myself found benefit with yoga when I was sick,” Rabold said. “It helped great with mobility. In my time as a new business owner and not taking care of myself to take care of everything else, I’ve found myself to be very stiff and not pliable. Looking at myself, I realized I couldn’t be the only one.”

Rachelle Higgins will lead the yoga classes. There are only spots for 10 people per class to begin. During April, classes will take place at The Union, 136 N Union St.

“Yoga has so many benefits in so many different ways,” Rabold said. “We wanted to make it a little more affordable for everybody to be able to enjoy at least starting with the basics and then branching out on their own. I think it should be available for everyone.”

Prices for the My Father’s Garden yoga will be $10 per session, but Rabold said she might offer package deals if the yoga takes off.

“We would love to do different kinds of yoga, like kids or couples yoga,” she said. “I’ve been approached by a lot of different things, and I think there’s room for all of that.”
