Located in the historic downtown Arts District of Winston Salem, PAZ offers a variety of classes within the studio and out in the community. Our intention as a yoga studio is to open up our space for those who want to find a sense of peace in their daily lives. Students may choose to take classes as a form of exercise, healing, and stress relief, or they may dive in to the study of yoga as a life transformative process. Our classes are asana (posture) based, but you can also experience pranayama (breath techniques), meditation, and the study of yogic philosophy in them. We have classes for all bodies at all experience levels,
safe and free of judgement for anyone that steps into the studio.
