K10Yoga CoOp is a community yoga space in Winston Salem, NC. Created as a space where we come together in shared practice and collective action for the Winston Salem community. We offer yoga classes on a sliding scale with no class over $10. Our space is trauma informed and welcoming of everyone seeking to grow and heal through yoga. We are located inside of 500Fit in the 500 building Downtown Winston-Salem, NC.
We believe yoga to be much more than stretching and bending, it is a place to grow as a human, to become more mindful and to walk this earth with purpose, passion, and authenticity. Yoga can offer us a place to explore our deeper selves, to cry if we need it, to laugh and scream and cleanse!
We hope you will join us as we embark on a yoga journey that transforms us all from the inside out. Feel your worth, your inner beauty, your strength and your voice, and let it blossom. Know that you are welcome and we look forward to meeting you and sharing a sacred space with you.
Our yoga classes are appropriate for everybody and are themed around concepts for discovery, self love, adaptability and growth.
All of the instructors at the K10Yoga CoOp in Winston Salem, NC are thoroughly trained in their designated fields. Our teachers come from many different backgrounds and teach from a true and authentic place!
