Welcome home.

Discover growth, balance & peace


Valerie Kiser founded Sunrise Yoga in 2003, welcoming students from Clemmons, Lewisville, Mocksville and the Winston-Salem area to the studio.

Sunrise subsequently achieved Yoga Alliance recognition as a Registered Yoga School (RYS). The Sunrise Yoga Teacher Training program launched in 2009, and the East Coast Yoga Therapy program she co-founded gained IAYT accreditation in 2018. It is among the first 30 yoga therapy training programs worldwide to receive accreditation.

Winston-Salem's "Best Yoga Studio"

Named Winston-Salem's Best Yoga Studio year after year after year, Sunrise is a welcoming and lighthearted yoga studio dedicated to providing a safe, educational and fun environment where you feel the pressures of daily life leave your body and mind as you enter.

Here, you'll rediscover your body and mind's strength, flexibility, focus and purpose in a high-speed world in a peaceful, calming atmosphere…softly colored walls, dimmed lights, and three spacious studio spaces.

Yoga your way, always

Choose from beginner through advanced yoga classes plus a full calendar of workshops and special events.

You'll find alignment (hatha) yoga classes inspired by B.K.S. Iyengar, flow yoga, gentle yoga, chair yoga, restorative yoga, Yoga Wall classes, and back care yoga.

Studio-provided mats, yoga props and aids including almost two dozen Yoga Walls make yoga accessible for all.

Private yoga instruction and yoga therapy are also available.

For future yoga teachers or those aspiring to deepen their lifelong yoga practice, we also offer 200 hour Yoga Teacher Training, 300-hour Yoga Teacher Training and Yoga Enrichment programs.

Yoga therapist training is available through East Coast Yoga Therapy.

Extraordinary instructors

All instructors are deeply experienced. They've all either completed 500-hour yoga teacher certification programs or are currently enrolled in 500-hour training programs. They're here to support you in your yoga journey, without judgment, negativity or criticism.

Living the values of yoga every day
