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.

Build on three main structures – exercise, breathing, and meditation? 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.

 

What Class Level is Right for Me?

We recommend beginners start out with Level 1-2 or 1-3. These classes focus on teaching the foundation necessary to build a safe, lifelong practice. Get the personal attention you deserve by choosing the right class level for you.

1: Beginner/Gentle (I've taken 0-5 Classes)
2: Intermediate (I've taken 6+ Classes)
3: Advanced (I am familiar with headstands, backbends)

We also offer private Yoga classes to students who want a more private introduction to Yoga, please contact us to schedule your session.

 

What are the Different Types of Yoga?

Satori Yoga Studio offers several traditions of yoga, including: Hatha, Iyengar, and Vinyasa. Learn more.

Online Classes - What Should I Expect?

While individual classes will vary to some extent, yoga classes at Satori are made up of a series of poses called asanas. Asanas include standing poses, seated poses, twists, forward bends, back bends, and inversions.
We also offer various types of classes such as mindful movement, dance and pilates.

 

Before Class:

  • Wear workout clothes that are comfortable and easy to move in. Socks and shoes are not worn during class.
  • It's best not to eat a big meal at least 2-3 hours before class. Avoid drinking too much water during class, but remember to hydrate afterwards.
  • Please make sure to reserve your spot at least 30 minutes before class begins to ensure you receive the notification to join live via Zoom.
  • Before class begins, let the instructor know about anything that might affect your practice, such as injuries, pregnancy, recent illness, chronic health conditions, anxiety, depression, migraines, etc. Women who are menstruating will often be instructed to do alternative poses, guided by the instructor.

Class Etiquette via Zoom:

  • If it's your very first time joining class on Zoom, please make sure that you have received the registration link and that the application is installed on your device in the most current version (do updates well in advance if needed).
  • Make sure to be ready at least 10 minutes before class, and please email us immediately if you do not see the link within 15 minutes of the class start time.
  • To have the best experience possible we recommend turning on your video feed - the instructor can see you this way, and provide recommendations on adjustments as needed just like we would do in-person. And there is more of a connection in community this way - with both the teacher and others attending, however if you cannot turn on your video feed for any reason or do not feel comfortable, that’s ok too.
  • Let the teacher know if you need to leave early for any reason.
  • Please be sure to turn off or silence your cell phone so you can continue to create the space to be in class even though you are practicing at home or another space.

After Class:

  • Rehydrate with water, and try to give yourself a buffer of several minutes between class ending and work or other activities if possible.

 

What Should I Bring?

We recommend you have your yoga mat out and ready to go, as well as any props you have at home such as blocks, straps, blankets and bolsters depending upon the style of class. The teacher will inform you of what you will need at the start of class.

 

Do you sell Yoga products / props?

Satori will continue to offer prop packages to students who would like to have the tools we often use in studio at home. We also have online partnerships with many retailers that offer products such as clothing, mats, straps, and blocks.
