As a Kundalini Yoga Instructor and practitioner I love creating beautiful conscious clothing for this practice. Wearing white is an integral part of practicing the Kundalini Yoga discipline as it expands the aura when we wear it. Even for those who do not practice yoga, wearing white teaches us awareness as we need to be extra careful about our surroundings to avoid soiling our clothes.
Yogi Bhajan (the Kundalini teacher who brought Kundalini yoga to the West) stated:
“We wear white because it’s a simple scientific fact that every piece of matter or material has a foot and a half aura. Every animal has a three and a half foot aura. Every human has a nine foot aura. And if we wear the cotton and we wear the white, this color therapy gives us one extra foot of aura.”
The “aura” is our shield, an unseen energy that surrounds our body like a “container for life force energy.” It is important to keep it strong in order to protect your mind and body from negative outside forces. Therefore, white helps magnify the energy you gain while doing your yoga practice.
Of course an extra support of energy are garments made from natural fabric- and preferably organic: organic cotton, canapa, bamboo and nettle- all offer a soft feel and energy from the earth.
