Notice, Acknowledge, and

Expand with Us

Drishti, a Sanskrit word that translates to gaze or vision, is often used to describe the eyes' focal point of a yoga pose. While developing your yoga drishti enhances your practice through concentration and self-awareness, we believe drishti is so much more than eye placement. It is your inner sight; your outward gaze. It's what you chose to focus on in life - both on and off the mat.

Yoga for Everyone

DrishTi practices and teaches Alignment Based Yoga [inspired by B.K.S Iyengar and Nicole's anatomy training] along with Bhakti Yoga [love, devotion, service] and Tantra [bringing the spiritual practice together]. Nicole blends ancient yogic philosophy, anatomy, and alignment to create comfortable yoga classes and welcoming experiences.​ Many lineages that Nicole has studied are woven together to provide optimal alignment in mind, body, and spirit. 

  

Classes are held in an intimate setting where each yogi is acknowledged. A quaint studio means personal attention and an intimate sense of community. All are welcome.

What to wear?


Well fitting clothes that have some give to them​.




Where to park?


Parking is available in the lot directly in front of the building and on the street. Do not park at Dunkin' Donuts - they tow!




What to bring?​


An open heart and mind. Mats, blocks, bands, and blankets are available for use. We encourage yogis with a regular practice to purchase their own mat.




What if I’ve never done yoga before?


We offer private sessions and classes to accommodate first-timers.




Do I have to be flexible?


No. One of the many misconceptions is that ​yoga is based on far you can stretch. It is possible to be too flexible and over extend; a healthy practice finds the balance between strength and length.




What’s the best way to pay?


Cash, credit cards, and checks accepted in the studio. Memberships and event registration can also be completed online.
