What is Yoga?
Yoga is a physical, mental, and spiritual discipline, originating in India. The word yoga in Sanskrit literally translates to “yoke,” meaning to join or unite. The goal of a yoga practice is to bring the body and mind together into one experience.
Built on three main structures— meditation, breathing, and exercise— the yoga practice is designed to increase the body’s efficiency and total health.
Satori Yoga Studio is devoted to helping urban professionals relax, unwind, and move their bodies, and so our classes emphasize stress reduction and relaxation. Our mission is to allow students to depart from their work environments and have the opportunity to look within, refocus, and regain a sometimes lost sense of perspective.
Is there a place where I can change and store my things during class?
Satori has changing rooms as well as cubby space for your clothing and personal items during class. We recommend you leave any valuables at home/work or bring them into the room with you for the duration of class.
Do you have Showers?
We do not currently offer showers. We do provide warm towels infused with aromatherapy oil during the afternoon so you can freshen up before heading back to the office.
Do you sell Gift Certificates?
Satori offers gift certificates for a class card or any amount. These are available for purchase online or by coming into the studio.
