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.
