About Us

The Orchid Tree Yoga community of dedicated instructors and wellness professionals, formerly as Orenda Yoga, has served the wellness needs of Guilderland, Rotterdam, Schenectady, Altamont, Knox, & Berne, as well as the greater Capital district area, for over 13 years.

The mission of the Orchid Tree Yoga community is to foster personal growth through exploration, determination and self-study by promoting physical awareness in a safe, supportive environment where students grow beyond their perceived boundaries to a deeper connection with themselves and others.

Orchid Tree Yoga instructors are vibrant, compassionate and deeply caring individuals devoted to yoga and their students.  Students receive individual attention and modifications appropriate to their personal practice.  Our health professionals offer supportive wellness care including: on-site massage in a dedicated massage space, Reiki treatments, as well as wellness events and workshops.

Leaf House:
In April of 2019 Orchid Tree Yoga opened its satellite location at 99 Street Road in Knox, NY.  Leaf House is a unique studio space designed for small classes as well as opportunities for workshops and events held in a beautiful, natural setting.  The goal of the studio is to provide access to yoga classes for residents of the Helderberg Hilltowns and surrounding areas.  Rural areas frequently lack amenities for the local communities and Leaf House answers that need.
Registration for classes at Leaf House can be done online or by phone:  518-729-6308.  As the studio is located in a private residence, attendees should be aware that the studio has cats.



Easily accessible to the experienced yogi or the absolute beginner, our studios are open to all and fully equipped for yoga, meditation, Chair Yoga, BarreFlow, and Family yoga classes.

Our Wellness Package pricing is one of the best in the Capital District in cost and value to our students.

Come experience the calm and tranquil space that is Orchid Tree Yoga.

Namaste.
