Drishti is your one-stop shop for yoga clothing, activewear, and yoga essentials for your active lifestyle! We opened our small, independently-owned yoga boutique in February of 2002 in downtown Santa Barbara, California. We launched our online store in 2007, and we have been serving our wonderful customers all over the country (and world!) ever since! We only carry the best yoga brands on the market, and we hand-pick all of our high-quality, high-performance products with you in mind. We strive to bring a boutique experience to our customers, whether in-store or online. Our goal is to be your favorite online shopping resource for all your yoga, workout, and lifestyle needs!
Jenni Rawlings began Drishti in 2001 out of her 1999 Honda Civic! Her dream space for Drishti opened up shortly thereafter and she moved her business from the trunk of her car to an elegant retail location. Jenni graduated from UC Santa Barbara in 2000, graduating with B.A.s in both Religious Studies and Cultural Anthropology. She discovered yoga in 1997 while in college, and in addition to running her store Drishti, she also teaches wonderful yoga & movement classes filled with science-based anatomy tidbits. Practice yoga with her online, find her teaching a workshop, training, or retreat, and read her popular & entertaining body geek blog.
