Satori Wellness Studio

ABOUT SATORI

Satori Wellness Studio is mind and body wellness studio located in Calgary, Alberta.  The "Studio" side of Satori focuses on classes and workshops in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, Self Defense, Yoga, Meditation/Breathwork, and Ginastica Natural/Movement.  The "Services" side of Satori offers Massage Therapy and Birth Doula Services.

Satori is a Japanese Buddhist term, translated as "awakening" or "understanding".  It is often considered one's first step on the path towards enlightenment. 

 

Satori began in 2011 after Diana completed her certification as a Shiatsu Therapist through Mount Royal University.  Diana's vision then was to build a practice which offered multi-disciplinary services to support the individual.  However, after having 2 children {the light of her life!} and becoming a Birth Doula, she decided to shift her focus to one that focused on families as well - introducing Birth Services, Yoga, and Preschool.  Her vision, then, evolved to offer both a studio-side (classes) and practice-side (services) to support families and individuals throughout various stages of growth - with a objective centered around wellness. 

 

In 2017, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and Self Defense (now the focus) began, this is where the studio saw a big shift and evolved into something even better.  Now, at best version, Satori is doing everything from first initial year to present - catering to families, individuals, serving in the community, and collaborating with many different organizations and businesses.   

 

-  I fell in love with the term "Satori" when I was doing my Shiatsu studies.  The moment I came across it, I felt a deep connection to the term. The more I learned about it's meaning, the more I realized it was exactly what I wanted to name the studio.  This time in my life was a very pivotal time for me in my growth; I began a journey that has lead me to discover ever-growing passions - a journey that has also taught me the importance of doing, acting with intention, and serving.   When we are able to look within and follow this, it has potential to release something remarkable.  There is also a balance there, as in nature, that relies on harmony.  Finding the right balance is unique to each individual.  Choosing healthy practices for body and mind, not only, help us to find that balance - but it also opens life up to joy, transformation, healing, community, and great health.  ~Diana
