  • How To Plan Your Staycation

    So many times in life, we are looking forward to the next great thing. Happy hour, Friday, vacation. Yet so often, when we finally get to that next anticipated place, it isn’t as fulfilling as we’d imagined. Maybe we don’t actually feel like a margarita, or we push ourselves to do too many activities on the weekend instead of unwind. And travel comes with all sorts of inconveniences and stresses of its own. Of course, these experiences can be rich and rewarding, and that’s why we look forward to them! However, it’s important to remember to stop and smell the roses too. (I mean literally, have you done that lately? It’s so simple, but amazing.)

    Here are a few tips for planning your next Staycation. Continue reading

  • Overnight Oats: A Life-Changing Recipe

    Overnight Oats: A Life-Changing Recipe

    By: Nicole Farris

    Breakfast is by far my favorite meal of the day. After a shot of apple cider vinegar + honey and a big cup of chamomile tea, I sit down and enjoy this delicious, healthy, and oh-so-easy breakfast delight before heading off to a yoga class or settling in for a day of writing. In my opinion, overnight oats come pretty close to avocado toast in the race for most life-changing food. Continue reading

    Hey guys!

There are plenty of things you can do RIGHT NOW in your body to feel happier and healthier. Check out our suggestions for gettin' into them hips on a regular basis. You will thank yourself for doing so! :

    Pigeon Variation - You don't need to wait 'til the end of a super sweaty yoga sesh to stretch those glutes. You can actually do a mellow pigeon stretch from the comfort of your very own office chair. Simply cross one ankle on top of the opposite thigh, just above the knee. Sit high enough so that you can lean forward just enough to feel a stretch. Bonus points: untuck your pelvis to get even more specific in this pose.

  • Between A & B // Walking Meditation

    walking yoga clothesWhether you’re walking 5 minutes to your car, 20 minutes to work, or 40 minutes on the beach, walking is not only a great way to exercise the body, but it’s a great opportunity to practice awareness and meditation.

    When walking, we sometimes get caught up thinking about where we’re walking from or where we’re walking to. So one exercise that’s kind of fun and challenging to start with is to try releasing your mind’s focus or grip on these these two things (the A and B of your walk). Instead, try focusing on the space in between A and B. Continue reading

  • Joah Brown’s New RIBBED Fabric!

    Joah Brown has been one of our favorite yoga and lifestyle clothing lines for a long time. In fact, we are proud to say that we are one of Joah Brown’s first accounts EVER! We love them for so many reasons. They are based out of Carpinteria, CA (just a few short miles from Santa Barbara, where Drishti is located). Their clothing tends to be budget-friendly, while still being super high quality and always made in the USA. As a small, entirely female-owned and operated business, ethical consumption is extremely important to us. Finally, they’re just a super friendly and nice company to work with. :)

    Joah Brown is constantly coming up with new and innovative cuts, colors, and textures: for example, check out the 100% French Terry Army Green Grunge Cut Off, here. But one of our absolute FAVORITE new fabrics that Joah is making is their ultra-soft and comfy ribbed fabric. And who doesn’t love the retro look and feel of ribbed longsleeves, tanks, and tees?

    Check out some of our fave new Joah Brown ribbed pieces, featured below. Continue reading
