About Us



Our Mission

Andrea Stern opened Satori Yoga Studio in 2004, after years of working in corporate Human Resources with the goal to provide urban professionals with a studio that caters specifically to their needs - an urban oasis based in the middle of San Francisco's Financial District.

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.

During the pandemic of 2020, Satori shifted to providing yoga, meditation and mindfulness offerings online. The impact in the community remains strong, and what we provide remains the same. We've been partnering with businesses for over a decade to offer yoga, meditation, mindfulness and now Embodying DEI (Diversity, Equity and Inclusion) offerings in partnership with Educator Michelle Emmanuelle and Jess Dervin-Ackerman.

At Satori we love to build community, and continue to expand access to whole person wellness.

We believe that the benefits of a conscientious practice of yoga, wellness or other methodologies that provide balance, strength and confidence are life-changing.

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.

Consider adding a yoga and wellness check in to your next all hands meeting, or a burnout toolkit or Embodied DEI workshop to your next staff retreat (online and in-person options available), or yoga/meditation class options for your staff during these challenging times!

We’re here for you and look forward to growing together.

Andrea Stern

Just over 15 years ago I was working in Corporate Human Resources when I felt a call to help employees on a deeper, more meaningful level.

After much thought, research and consideration and after feeling the benefits of a midday yoga session, I decided to open a yoga studio catering specifically to the needs of urban professionals in the heart of San Francisco’s Financial District.

Today, we offer our programming to businesses all around the globe and we are still based here in San Francisco.
