About Us

Drishti is your go-to yoga, workout, and lifestyle boutique, based in beautiful Santa Barbara, CA. We hand-pick the best yoga basics and seasonal styles from the greatest brands on the market. We have had long-time relationships with all of our great brands, including Joah Brown, Beyond Yoga, Hard Tail, Onzie, Teeki, and Nux. In many cases we were the first to carry these brands and share them with a wider customer base. 

Drishti was started in 2002 out of the back of our original owner Jenni's Honda Accord. She saw a need for a one-stop-shop for yoga apparel and gear in the fast-growing Santa Barbara yoga community, and seized the opportunity. In 2017, long-time general manager Candice Davantzis purchased the business and continued on with Jenni's vision. Drishti continues to be all female-owned and operated with a small, dedicated staff of 3 amazing employees. We strive to source ethically, with US-made, eco-conscious brands being a priority, as well as attention to quality and fashion.

We'd like to see the end of fast fashion (when we're not wearing Drishti clothes, we're buying at other boutiques, or shopping second hand). We believe the clothes you wear should make you feel good in all ways. We support you in being your healthiest, most confident, radiant self. Come visit us in the boutique, or shop our online offering of amazing yoga clothing and lifestyle apparel. We hope to see you soon!

Michelle was born and raised in NorCal, transplanted down to SB for undergrad at UCSB, then grad school at Pacifica where she is finishing her masters in somatic depth psychology. Aside from working at Drishti, she teaches yoga and loves running and hiking.

Amelia moved from North Carolina to Santa Barbara to earn her B.A. in Studio Art. She now incorporates and channels that creativity into teaching yoga. The beach is Amelia's second home and the ocean is her soul place. If she's not doing yoga, hiking, camping, or getting messy with charcoal and watercolor she's off embracing her inner mermaid. Follow her on Instagram for a dose of yoga and the outdoors here: @amylyarose AND follow her amazing rescue pooch Goliath's account: @lifewithlilg
