We Are Extending Memberships + Practice With Us Online
Updates from Satori
Watch Andrea Stern on Axois' Pandemic Pivot :
I hope you are all getting settled into our new normal. One thing that I’ve been reflecting on a lot since the spring is all that we are being called upon to create and nurture our communities – the friends, family, neighbors and loved ones who we stay in close contact with, in difficult times like these, that help us to feel connected and remind us to be grateful to be a part of something greater than ourselves.
I’m grateful for my son and my partner, who I honestly never seem to have enough downtime with. I’m grateful for my friends and neighbors who have been checking in on us and making sure we’re healthy (we are, thank God) and for our family members near and far.
I am also so grateful for the Satori community! In a time filled with so much uncertainty, it has been amazing hearing from you with ideas, suggestions of how we move forward and keep our community alive and thriving.
While we are not practicing in the studio until it is safe to do so, we’re excited to be building and diversifying our online schedule with more classes of all kinds from mid-day vinyasa flow to quickie workouts and even a new sunrise practice. Plus we’re adding in new teachers regularly, and welcoming back familiar faces who are now able to teach at Satori again due to classes being online!
It is our goal to continue to give you more options to stay connected to the much-needed stress relief and resilience found in mindful movement. If there is a class or time you’d like to see on the schedule, send us an email and let us know!
We’ve kept the pricing accessible. You can purchase a single drop in class, a 10-class pack or continue your membership.

Since the global uprising of the Black Lives Matter movement after the murder of George Floyd our community-based studio is also taking a stronger stand to create more Anti-Racism events and resources for the community. Satori is one of the very few black-woman and mama owned yoga studios in the Bay Area. Support black-owned businesses!
We believe the yoga practice is fertile ground for going deep, having hard conversations and growing both individually as a community. Check out the schedule for our new Anti-Racism book club events which also include a powerful discussion and a bit of movement.
These book clubs are held multiple times each month to keep the audience both intimate and give you ample time to read a portion or the whole book before you attend.
Thank you to all of the Monthly Members, Class Pack purchasers and to each and every one of you who gave in our GoFundMe campaign or who have donated after attending our Anti-Racism book club events.
As I’m sure you can imagine this time is particularly scary for many small businesses and we are incredibly grateful for your support as many yoga studios small and large close their doors. And we know you have a choice on where and how you invest your time and resources, and we are honored you’ve chosen Satori.
As a BONUS right now we have a **library of yoga classes of varying styles available for FREE at vimeo.com/satoriyogastudio for you to keep connected to your yoga and meditation practice.
Do you typically use a 3rd party to attend classes? One student offered to cancel her 3rd party membership for the month to give that $$ to the studio to keep it going! Of course those memberships or passes will become active once we're back up and running in person. Purchase one here to help us now if you can.
Give the Gift of Yoga! Send a package of livestream classes to a friend, a loved one for a birthday or holiday (or just because!). We even have a weekly prenatal class, so you could buy a pack and send it to a friend who is expecting. To purchase, please use the button below or click here to do so!
Of course, if you need to cancel your membership at this time because it will cause financial hardship, please reach out to us directly at Satori.email@example.com.
I am also infinitely grateful for the healthcare workers who are going to work each day while we sit in the comfort and safety of our homes. We are looking for ways to support our local nurses and doctors, please also send over any ideas you might have to lift them up through yoga or meditation as well.
Thanks to each of you who have reached out with message of love a support! Feel free to share the link to our library of videos (by forwarding this email) with your family and friends to keep them grounded during these changing times.
See you soon, Andrea
