OMgirl’s Fall Collection is Here!

OMgirl has just released their fall clothing collection, and we’re loving the variety of new colors, patterns and fabrics! Below we’ve rounded up a few of our favorites that really stand out:

The Asana Collection – lush sueded organic cotton


OMgirl has revamped this beloved collection – including the Asana Bra, Nomad Legging and Hatha Legging – to a sumptuous sueded fabric for fall. It’s still the same organic cotton and Lycra that you know and love, but with an extra touch of luxury. One of their newest additions is the Pose Capri, a gorgeous new capri legging with a wrap-detail waistband that can be folded over or worn high-waisted.

The Reformer Collection – enticing eyelet designs


OMgirl always finds new ways to make yoga clothes exciting, eye-catching and fun! With their new eyelet-inspired East Coast Cami, Reformer Legging and West Coast Pant, the dotted hole details add a feminine and sporty touch to your fall yoga wear. The organic cotton fabric looks and feels great as you flow through your day, and a touch of Lycra stretch offers a snug and secure fit.

Earth and Sky Wash – a new nature-inspired pattern


We can’t get enough of this stunning and original wash, which echoes the colorful beauty of a blue sky reflected on rippling water. This one-of-a-kind pattern is available in the Half Moon Tank, Hatha Legging and Hybrid Wrap. You can pair them with OMgirl clothing in the new Artisan Indigo and Fresh Olive shades for a match made in heaven!

New OMgirl Is In!

It’s always an exciting time at Barefoot Yoga when a new season of OMgirl arrives – for us it means a variety of stunning new fashions, colors, and styles that we can’t help but fall in love with!

Below are some of our new favorite pairings fresh out of the box:

1. Half Moon Bra in Horizon Dye paired with Practice Pants in Horizon Dye



The Horizon Dye style is a long-loved classic when it comes to OMgirl designs, but the new Dawn color simply took our breath away! In a stunning pink and blue color combination, this new color is perfect for the transition from hot summer days into cool nights that have just a hint of fall in them. We love the combination of the matching Half Moon Bra with the Practice Pant – it creates a stunning silhouette while providing optimum comfort. And, if you find yourself needing a little extra coverage during a cool evening, try out the Practice Cardi! It’s the perfect design and weight to simply throw on after class or while relaxing on the porch.


2. Enlighten Legging paired with Hot Short


A new legging on the scene is OMgirl’s sheer and satiny Enlighten Legging. These are perfect for wearing for a little extra warmth and coverage under a skirt, shorts, or dress! Pair them with the comfy and flattering Hot Short for a sporty look that gives off a laidback yogi vibe.


3. Combo Legging paired with Infinity Tank Namaste



This unique legging is versatile and eye catching for wearing out and about, at the studio, or at the gym! With the stretchy, long length of the leggings, you can easily wrap them under your foot for a bump of extra style on the mat, and for an eye catching look that will surely turn heads, pair it with the relaxed Infinity Tank Namaste.


4. Lineup Capri paired with Concept Cami

Another couple of newcomers! The Concept Cami offers a relaxed but flattering style with a lightweight, flowy bottom and fitted bra top design that has a super cute yet subtle striped pattern. Pair it with the similarly striped Lineup Capri for a supremely comfortable outfit that you can take from casual wear to workout wear with no effort needed!

Coming Back to Yoga: A New Commitment


Mysore, India circa 1996. Barefoot Yoga co-founder Dave with Pattabhi Jois and Sharath in front of the Yoga Shala after practice.


Sometimes we all need a spark to get going on something we know will do us a world of good.  And sometimes we need to proclaim our commitment to this discipline-requiring activity to help muster up that regular discipline.


Fre Sols Yoga 15


The picture above is from this past weekend’s free yoga class hosted by Laura Yon Yoga & Bodywork at the Fremont Fair nearby Barefoot Yoga here in Seattle.  I had set my sights on this class from weeks before, when Barefoot Yoga Co. donated a Silk sari scented eye pillow (Brindavan Teal) that was a prize raffled off to a lucky participant.

Laura Yon teaches a beautiful class. The sun was shining, but it wasn’t hot. A perfect Seattle morning. 130 or so of us – mostly in unison.

For the rest of the day, I felt the lift of that yoga class. I moved more fluidly. I felt more even keeled in all ways.

I came to yoga to strengthen my body after a back injury in my twenties. My yoga dedication peaked in Mysore, India 1996 – practicing almost daily with Pattabhi Jois and his grandson Sharath for two months. Since that time, I have felt in my heart yoga would be a big part of my life. And it has – with Barefoot Yoga – that started after that experience, and continues today.

But my own feet – bare or otherwise, have not gotten back into a regular yoga practice since shortly after Mysore.

Meanwhile, I have been asked to write blogs here, but have had a hard time figuring out what to write about. During that wonderful free outdoor class on the first official International Yoga Day in our history (as decreed by the United Nations last December) – a light bulb went off. I will write about my own re-entry into a regular practice. I will periodically write updates about my efforts to squeeze yoga into my life regularly.

In the picture above from Sunday’s class here in Seattle, I see one yogi who has both legs pulled to his chest, while all others have one leg extended. That’s okay, we don’t always move at the exact pace of the class. But I’ll admit, I’m slightly embarrassed to be the one person not holding the correct pose.

Perhaps over time, my ego will melt away in favor of higher yogic consciousness. For now I will simply add that my Barefoot Yoga Performance Grip mat (pictured below) was perfect for this class held in a parking lot. Its density not only felt comfortable and padded when on our knees, its firmness kept me totally grounded for the balancing poses.

Also, our UPS man’s girlfriend spotted my Lotus pattern yoga mat bag, and he came in the next day and requested one for her.

Office yoga at BFY

Most importantly, I am motivated to squeeze yoga into my busy life regularly. My mat is now open in my office, (pictured above) – and although I have only squeezed in about five minutes worth today, it was enough for a new concept to emerge – “the yoga five.” My goals are modest now – at least a half hour of yoga 6 days a week. That’s how I got hooked in the first place – more than two decades ago. But I’m hoping this time it lasts – for a lifetime, (or three). Time, and I  – will tell.
