Ever wonder why everyone wears white in Kundalini classes? Learn how it just might lighten your soul no matter what style you practice.

Yogi Bhajan, the master of Kundalini Yoga, believed colors have an effect on consciousness. And since white as a prism is a balance of all colors, it has a unique impact on the conscious and subconscious minds.

“We ask you to wear white so that you will reflect what is outside and go within yourself—that’s what white clothes can do for you.” —Yogi Bhajan, 1975

He taught his students that wearing all white clothing expands one’s auric radiance by at least one foot. This is believed to strengthen one’s identity and serve as a filter for negative influences from the surrounding world.

Wearing white is also a meditation in itself, as it takes more mindfulness and care to keep white clothes clean. As he once stated: “The most difficult thing on this planet is to wear white from top to bottom; white, it is the greatest therapy.” So whatever kind of yoga you practice, consider taking a cue from Kundalini and trading your standard-issue black leggings for something lighter. Here are a few ideas.

Kundalini yogis wear white from head to toe. That means comfortable white pants are a must, especially when sitting in meditation—at times for up to 62 minutes! The Om Collection’s 3 Tier Flow Pants are form fitting but modest, with multiple layers that prevent any chance of being see-through.

Women often ask me which styles I recommend for pre/post natal. Having just had a baby I decided to put together my favorite OM styles that were perfect while my body was in transition. It can be so tempting to make it all about the baby, but the more you continue to nurture yourself the easier the transition to motherhood is.

The last several months, many of us have spent an unusually large amount of time at home. If you're anything like me, you may have begun to feel confined by the walls of your home and trapped by the need to manage the stuff in your space. Excess stuff can also distract you from the work that you know needs to be done and rob you of the precious time needed to build a life that you love. Here at the OM Collection we believe less is more.
