Hi! I'm Andrea Stern, a Black woman, Mama, and entrepreneur who began Satori in 2004 as an oasis for urban professionals. Our newly expanded Wellness in the Workplace offerings offer comprehensive services to businesses of all sizes (offerings available both in-person and digitally at this time).
We are here to support you in addressing some of the biggest challenges your people face today - including DEI at the workplace, and how to prevent burnout (as well as understanding how to address it when it arises), and improving the overall health of your culture and your business.
We're known for our great teachers + faciltators
Our mission over the last nearly two decades has not changed: we hold space for all practitioners regardless of age, race, gender, physical ability, financial means or orientation of any type.

In fact, we even named our business after it - “Satori” is translated as an opportunity to look within, refocus, and regain a sometimes lost sense of perspective.
