As we transition into fall, Mother Nature might begin to cool off and slow down, but that doesn't necessarily mean our daily lives always follow suit. For most of us, its a given that our life can get crazy-beautiful-busy sometimes, and we we all know that it is in times like these that we need to take extra good care of ourselves. Great nutrition that fuels your body, mind and spirit are paramount in maintaining a balanced lifestyle.

My favorite morning yoga practice lately has been the Kundalini Yoga “Wake Up Series.” It leaves me feeling focused, energized, and calm. Four postures, one breath technique, and I am happily ready to take on my day.

- is healing to the lower spine
- activates the 72,000 energy channels, called nadis, in the body
- strengthens your core
- activates the lymph to remove waste and toxins

We had an ahmaaaazing time last week during Drishti's seasonal photo shoot, featuring some of our favorite new looks for Fall and Winter. We were lucky enough to have our own wonderful Drishti Girls Team as our models. This made for a super fun day-long shoot that took us all over Santa Barbara - from the Funk Zone, to some epic nature spots. It was a rad celebration of natural beauty and natural Beauties! xxo
The popular interest in spirituality spawned in the 60's, and is now undergoing yet another Renaissance. Today, it influences every aspect of our lives - from the way we view community, health and wealth, to the way we do business.
What is Yoga?
A Guest Blog Post by Camille Robins
“Yoga” means something a little different to everyone – and seeing as I’m just one person, I can only say what’s true for me. All I have is some insights gained from a steady asana practice, and a few years of paying attention to what’s going on inside of me and around me – of bringing back my attention again and again to what I think and feel and experience as I move through this life.
And at 25, I have some experience; not tons, but some.
Itʼs almost kinda autumn here in Santa Barbara - well, almost, heheh!
This fall, weʼve been inspired by deeper jewel tones and fabrics that can take us from street to studio. Stuff we can layer, thatʼs breathable, and that looks and feels amazing. Check out some of our favorite looks from our Santa Barbara boutique below!
We at Drishti love getting the most out of our yoga practices. Don't you? :)
So, here's a helpful alignment tip on everyone's favorite shape (heheh) - Utkatasana, Chair Pose. You can use this tip in class or at home to give your yoga practice a little boost!
1. First, let's have a look at Traditional Chair pose.
As we head into the fall season, it’s a great time to take a breath and assess where you are at in all areas of your life. Season transitions are potent time periods for us to take some space to get some perspective on our lives - physically, mentally, and emotionally - and observe how we are using our energy and time.
