Yorkton is my hometown. I grew up here, went to school here and left only after finishing high school. Since moving away, many new businesses have opened up. And it’s only fitting that I share some of my must-visit Yorkton spots.
Refresh Massage Spa and Studio
A contemporary day spa that offers high quality massages, facials, manicures, pedicures and makeup application. I recently had a facial here and was impressed with both the products used (Éminence Organics) and level of service. The extractions were thorough and the facial itself was relaxing and sleep-inducing. I also loved the steaming, which brought all of my impurities to the surface. I highly recommend booking yourself in for a facial this winter, your skin will thank you.
Get Half Baked
If you’re anything like me, life sometimes gets in the way of cooking wholesome, healthy meals. Fortunately, my mother is a fantastic cook and makes me the most delicious meals whenever I return home. However, it’s a relief to know Get Half Baked will help me out if I’m in a pinch and need to host a dinner party.
Inner Cycle Studio
Get your sweat on at this newly opened spin studio. The classes are upbeat and energizing. The motivating instructors will ensure you’re challenging yourself and staying positive throughout your workout. I’m also a fan of their company gear, be sure to check it out.
A beautiful place to elevate your practice, Body Poetry offers a spectrum of yoga classes. Everything from gentle and restorative to Vinyasa flow and Bikram, Body Poetry is my favourite place to practice my downward dogs and breathing in Yorkton.
Godfrey Dean Art Gallery and Western Development Museum
While these cultural hubs aren’t new, (we used to play piano at Godfrey Dean in high school) the exhibitions on offer are constantly changing. Regardless of what floats your boat, you’ll find something of intrigue at Godfrey Dean. The Western Development Museum is the place to learn about Saskatchewan’s vast history. With a brand new tagline, Saskatchewan Inspired, “the museum celebrates artifacts that represent the innovation, creativity and resourcefulness that are so much a part of Saskatchewan’s heritage.” Both are worth a visit whenever you’re in town.
