Yoga & AdiValka: Freedom From All That Confines

ˇyoga citta vritti nirodhah

While yoga as a discipline has overtaken and changed the world with it’s grounding nature, simplicity of purpose, and versatility of form, in our story yoga is one of, if not the primary reason AdiValka came into being. 

AdiValka was born of the void Manisha Naidu, designer and CEO, felt of comfortable, functional clothes that would allow yogis (as well as dancers, martial art practitioners & students of these disciplines alike) to experience unrestrictive movement in clothes that were not body-hugging and tight fitted. Manisha found her inspiration for what would become AdiValka’s signature dhoti pants in the kachche dhoti (more about this in our previous blog post), and began the process of tailoring AdiValka’s signature dhoti pants to complement and enhance one’s yoga practice.

AdiValka’s signature dhoti pants are the epitome of functional comfort wear that embody the concept of “fashion with a purpose.” Every aspect of the pants were researched and developed for its utility while maintaining the aesthetic of the contemporary idiom of fashion.

The cut of our dhoti pants allows one a wide range of motion and complete freedom of movement. Add to this, we only use only the best fabric — (ethically sourced) 100% cotton — to create our garments. Every aspect of our process is approached with the same tapas that yoga teaches and encourages in its students.

We embellish our garments with natural healing elements with the explicit purpose of protecting the wearer and encouraging positive energy in their environment. These elements are said to not only promote spiritual connectivity and radiate positive energy, but also actively combat negative influences and help enhance your meditative practices. Most importantly, we constantly innovate to make sure our pants are providing what any yogi (of any level) would need. 

In our latest collection, Kalakrama: The Rule of Art Sanctioned by Tradition, we’ve embellished our garments with rudraksha, sandalwood, and tulasi bead tassels and buttons. The aroma of sandalwood helps the mind to unwind and increases spiritual energy. The tulasi beads radiate positive energy and help center the mind.
