If your vata is aggravated, you’ll experience symptoms like dry and chapped skin, low body weight, constipation, gas, bloating, interrupted sleep, anxiety and over thinking. And to balance your vata dosha, almost all asanas work well because they tend to calm the mind.
The right asanas will dispel fear, worry, and anxiety and bring relief from problems like constipation, back pain, and joint pains. It will also strengthen your lower back and improve general health and wellbeing.
These are the two asanas that people with a vata-dominant dosha will find beneficial.
Stand with your feet shoulder-width apart.
Raise both hands overhead and clasp the other arm just above the elbows. Let your forearms rest on or just above your head.
Keep the back straight, bend forward from the hips while exhaling. Bend as far forward without straining.
Keep your hands crossed. Then, touch the floor or if you are flexible, clasp behind your heels.
Count to 15. Slowly stand upright.
Sit upright. Flex knees underneath your buttocks.
Keep arms to your side, bend forward from hips until your head touches the floor.
If your head can’t reach the floor, place a pillow on the floor for your head to rest upon.
Count to 30. Slowly sit upright.
Yoga doesn’t have to be difficult or straining. That defeats the whole purpose. It should leave you feeling light and calm, which is a sign that your dosha is balanced. However, ensure that you practice under the guidance of a trained professional to avoid injuries.
