Late Cancel fee (6 hour window) – $18 or loss of credit
No Show fee – $18
We want to encourage students to cancel out of class, rather than not show up. This gives us an opportunity to fill the open spot in class.
If you make it into class from the waitlist, you are responsible for showing up or late cancelling.
Late Cancellations must be done through the app – as opposed to through our social media or instructors. If you have an emergency, please reach out to the studio directly at 406-534-6543 or by email at email@example.com and we will make exceptions on a case-by-case basis.
We appreciate your cooperation with these policies.
All classes at Black Orchid are instructor lead. This means that every class has been uniquely designed with drills, flows, or poses for the duration of the class. We ask that students that choose to not participate in the prepared class, refrain from taking a bike or a mat in the front.
We also ask that students do not bring their cellphones into the class rooms and that smart watches are put into “theatre mode.”
Our instructors try their best to start classes on time so we ask that students plan accordingly and arrive early to class.
This agreement is signed by all students through the Black Orchid app prior to taking any class.

Katie – one of our owners – co-leads the Yoga Alliance certified in-house 200 Hour Yoga Teacher Training. She teaches a power vinyasa based class that will challenge your mind and your body. With a little bit of balance work, and a whole lot of core work, you will leave class feeling like you’ve been lengthened and strengthened.
Peter – one of our owners – is a staple in both the yoga studio and in the Arena. He is a senior master instructor with nearly 10,000 classes taught. He founded and leads the Black Orchid Cycle Teacher Training and co-leads the Yoga Alliance certified in-house 200 Hour Yoga Teacher Training. His classes are all musically driven and will consistently challenge you to reach your higher potential.
Hayley – our operations and brand manager and one of our master trainers in the Arena – has been teaching with us since 2020. Her classes focus on working hard on the bike, while making sure that you’re activating the right muscles during each movement. Hayley incorporates a healthy mix of techno, hip hop, and remixes to keep you grinding on the bike.
Mercede received her training and started teaching back in 2014 while living in New York City and working as a massage therapist. During those years of doing bodywork, she realized the importance of helping people stay physically strong and obtaining functional mobility. Therefore, her focus is all about strength.
Mercede teaches the barre, shape, and yoga classes which are all intense, upbeat, invigorating, and empowering. Her goal is to have you walk out of the hot room sweating, feeling every muscle in your body, gaining results efficiently, and ready to be physically confident in your daily movement!
With a vast background in dance, Teresa’s yoga classes focus on movement and flows that feel good in your body and calm your mind . Her cycle classes, however, bring in throwbacks and trap music with choreographed drills to get your body moving and sweating.
Taya is a Black Orchid OG – as she has been a part of the community since 2015. Her classes are built to challenge you – head, heart, and soul. Taya looks to help her students to succeed in building a foundation of a healthy lifestyle for their mind and body and keep them feeling good!
Stevie has a very extensive background in fitness – including cycle and personal training, as well as yoga. Her classes offer you a fun, creative, sequence flow while also being restorative. You can expect to get your entire body engaged if you’re on the mat with Stevie.
Chelsea was a dance instructor for over 15 years and has a background in singing, DJ-ing and performing, so her classes will have you feeling like you’re at a concert! Her music style includes dubstep, EDM, old school hip hop, and hard rock. You’re going to get hyped up and party while getting a challenging and fun workout!
As a student in Josh’s class, you can expect a lot of sprints and climbs. You can also expect to hear all of your favorite current bangers along with some of the best throwbacks. He is just as likely to rock out to Marshmello and Khalid, as he is Backstreet Boys, Justin Timberlake, or Shania Twain. Most importantly, he believes that this is the student’s class – so if you want to sing and let the music move you or sit in the back and just enjoy the ride, it’s up to you.
Susan started as a student at Black Orchid in 2019 but fell in love quickly with the community and instructors so took the leap and did her 200 hour YTT at Black Orchid in 2020, and joined the team in 2022. Her classes can be relatively traditional or eclectic – and sometimes even spicy.
Tanya has been a yoga instructor and educator since 2013. She has managed studios and led teacher trainings, but has always loved the energy in guiding a class. I teach multiple formats, but really enjoy an invigorating vinyasa or shape flow. I am a believer that seeking a perfect posture is not the purpose of yoga, but rather about peeling back all the layers of the practice. Getting into a long awaited posture is so rewarding, but the mental journey to get there is where the real work and growth occur. I love to see my students surprise themselves and hope to continue to hold a safe space for them to explore.
With her background in dance and gymnastics, she brings her love of body movement, body awareness and provides a structure for a full-body physical experience. All the while inviting space for a mental and spiritual practice. Arianna is a lover of live music, new experiences, community, and story telling – all of which she brings to her mat for her classes.
Rae’s class is a lighthearted exploration of new movement patterns in your body. She focuses on mobility exercises while moving through funky flows and peak poses. Rather than forcing ourselves into shapes, the goal is to tune-in and tailor the practice to suit each individual’s unique, magnificent self: whether you’re looking to take a sweet approach or perhaps make it a little spicy! Her hope is that you leave class feeling connected, with an appreciation for all the things that make you, YOU!
Megan’s classes are filled with heavy beats and remixed throwbacks. Expect combinations of fun choreography, fast beats, and heavy climbs. She will challenge you to pursue your goals on and off the bike and you’ll walk away from class feeling mentally and physically stronger.
Larissa (M.S., E-RYT) is passionate about helping people find their joyful movement. She has been teaching various modalities since 2013, from ballet barre classes to deep stretches, and connected with yoga specifically when she started making shapes to heavy metal music. Due to an extensive background in anatomy, she guides a very informed and alignment-based practice, as well as adding life advice about embracing your dark side into every class.
Erin’s yoga style is a blend of vinyasa flow, breathwork, hatha, and the 26&2 series, with an emphasis on how the movement on our mats allows us to mirror and shift from good intentions to whole hearted and soulful change. Her classes are designed to both uplift and ground you in your practice, increase lung capacity, strength and flexibility, and to find more balance between the human and divine parts of ourselves. Be prepared to sweat, laugh, and possibly shed a few tears.
George – our general manager and one of our master trainers in the Arena – has been an Arena staple since she first stepped up on that stage. Her classes are high energy, loud and will get you hyped up. If her drills and soundtrack don’t make you smile, her dances moves will definitely do the trick!
Kali’s classes focus on working hard and building your endurance. Catch her playing a variety of hip-hop and pop hits to get you sweating – and maybe even singing – on the bike!
Whether you’re a beginner or an experienced student, Marisa’s yoga class is an opportunity to reap the benefits of an integrated practice. In her full body, comprehensive class, you’ll have the opportunity to reconnect to yourself, center, and cultivate vitality in the body, breath, and mind.
