Understand the root-cause of your problem, and begin your personalized treatment today.
If your pitta dosha is imbalanced, you’ll experience symptoms like red, inflamed rashes, cold sores, acne on your skin, acid reflux, heartburns, nausea on missing a meal along with an uncomfortable feeling of heat in the body. And yoga is the best way to get relief from all these symptoms.
However, according to Ayurveda, there are specific yoga asanas for every dosha. For pitta type people who are assertive and intense due to the fiery nature of their constitution, calming and not overly heating asanas works wonders.
You can try practising these two asanas to balance your pitta dosha.
Lift your buttocks as you kneel down as though you were standing on your knees. Place palms on your buttocks.
Extend your lower back while you move your thighs and pelvis forward. Bring your hands to your heels.
Gently extend your neck while continuing to breathe slowly.
Count to 20. Slowly go back to original pose. Repeat.
Lie face down and place your feet together with ankles extended.
Bend the elbows and place your hands flat on the floor by your lower ribs. If you are not flexible you can place your palms on the floor at shoulder level.
Inhale and extend your elbows, raise your head, chest and abdomen off the floor. Pelvic bones should be touching the ground.
You can extend your head or keep it in a neutral position.
Count to 20. Slowly lie down again and relax. Repeat.
With a few minutes every day, practice these asanas to keep you healthy and your pitta dosha in balance. However, it is advisable to practice under the guidance of a trained professional to avoid injuries.
