About The Giving Tree Yoga Studio
Deep in the heart of NYC, the Giving Tree Yoga Studio is a holistic sanctuary located in
the most culturally diverse neighborhood in the world. Providing classes, workshops,
trainings, spa and astrological services, spiritual counseling, and most importantly, a like-
minded social community, the studio cultivates overall wellbeing on a foundation of
inclusivity with a family-like sense of belonging. Founders Anne-Margaret Redding and
Anthony Wood, graduates of One Spirit Interfaith Seminary, are faithful ministers to their
local community and to national and international outreach efforts on four continents.
Their impassioned ministry of peaceful coexistence honors the cultural richness of global
diversity while finding common ground for those of differing perspectives.
If you look closely at our mural-sized logo, you will notice in the roots of the chakra-lined
tree and revealed in the rocks and flowers are the symbols of the major world religions.
This is to honor our history, our elders, and yet acknowledge that the time is now to
collectively integrate the wisdom of the great spiritual masters with our own intuition
and direct connection to the Divine (God, the Creator, the universe, love, or whatever
name you give that energy). The circle behind the tree represents the critical relevance
and powerful influence of conscious community.
New to NYC?
Many residents of NYC chose to leave the communities of their childhood, leave their
country, leave their families, step out of the box, and move to a city of eight million to
pursue their passions, their calling, and their dream. This uprooting can feel very lonely
and it is incredibly important to have a supportive, loving, inclusive community as a
chosen ‘family’ to nurture you and provide a home away from home. The Giving Tree
has become that ‘family’ to so many and provides endless opportunities for personal
development, community building, and joyful connections with others.

|Over the past 7 years, it has been our great pleasure serving the Astoria
Community. To survive the annual raise in rent, we have increased our rates.
This marks our first rate increase since we opened our doors in 2009.
Thank you for being a part of this incredible community, our yoga family.
