As many Drishti Blog readers know, Jenni Rawlings, owner of Drishti, is also an incredible yoga teacher who offers online yoga classes. Recently, she started leading workshops and retreats! Since Jenni moved to Chicago, her Santa Barbara-based yoga students have missed her - BIG time. Jenni's online classes help all of us get through until she comes to town to visit and teach a workshop or two. But we're so excited to announce that Santa Barbara is going to get a BIG dose of Jenni this coming November in a retreat she is co-leading with long time friend, AHmazing teacher and Massage Therapist, Emily Benaron.
Today's blog comes to you from Chief Drishti Blog Content Creator, Chantal Peterson. We love Chanti for her big beautiful heart, and her many talents: writing, modeling, massage therapy, and world travel. We hope you find this piece an inspiration - we did!
When in tune with a wave, the ride is an ecstatic gift from the Divine.
And when out of tune... well, many would say that is a gift from the Divine as well.
At one point during my first season of winter swell in Santa Barbara, an old-school surfer guy offered up a piece of advice. Since then, over the past couple of years during which I've been learning to surf, I've reflected on this advice many times. We were sitting out on the water on our longboards, waiting for the next set to come through. He watched me wipe out more than once this session already, and offered a few tips about navigating this particular wave. After thanking him, I said something about the humbling challenges and breakthroughs that surfing was offering me. He replied, "It doesn't get harder to learn new things as you get older, it just gets harder to be bad at them."

Today's blog comes to you from Santa Barbara yogini and Restorative Yoga teacher, Simone Duffet! We love Simone and are so stoked to share her insights about the beautiful practice of Restorative Yoga with you today. Enjoy!
There are plenty of yoga students that would come to my class and think, “Really, did I just pay for this? We aren’t doing anything.” I couldn’t blame them for this, because they aren’t totally wrong. There is a whole lot of doing nothing during the therapeutic and restorative yoga class I teach. I mean, we sometimes practice only three poses in an hour and a half! That’s why I lovingly refer to my class as “Nap-time for grown-ups.” That nothing, however, is deceptively rich.
Living in Santa Barbara, CA, doesn't usually make us feel much of a need to escape. With sunsets like these, what's to complain about?
We all know that yoga pants are made for doing yoga. But at Drishti, we are firm believers that yoga pants are actually made for wearing ALL the time.
As yoga clothing and atheisure styles continue to expand and get more streetwear savvy, it becomes all the more acceptable to basically never take your yoga clothing off. We are SO on board with that. This blog is for those of you who are looking for a few tips on how to keep that studio-to-street style fresh, or still aren't convinced that yoga pants really can be dressed up (really!). Read on for Drishti's three tips for sporting your yoga pants any time, any day!
As you may know, Drishti's owner Jenni Rawlings is also a fantastic yoga teacher and lifelong student of the body. Recently, she wrote an article for Yoga International about the Science of Pain. We found it super enlightening and informative, and we wanted to make sure to share it with you!
The jist of the article is that pain does not always originate from tissue damage or injury - pain is created in the brain, and it may or may not be related to actual tissue damage in the body. When you think about pain in this new way, doesn't it cause you to relate to pain differently? WHOA.
For more from Jenni, be sure to check out her online yoga classes, read her blog, and... sign up for her first ever yoga and self-care retreat with Emily K Benaron in Ojai this fall! WHAAT? We're so excited! We'll definitely be there.
