If your kapha is imbalanced, you’ll experience symptoms like a dull, lethargic or heavy feeling, excessive weight, sluggish bowel movements, and emotional overeating. And for kapha dominated people, stimulating and heating asanas are good for balancing dosha. You can try the tree pose and the triangle pose to begin with.
Stand straight and keep arms to your side.
Keep your left leg straight and firm. Lift your right foot and bend knee gently. Place the sole firmly, but flatly, high on your left thigh.
Once balanced, raise both arms above your head and bring your palms together in hands-folded position (‘Namaste’ mudra). Count to 30.
Slowly, bring down hands and then the foot. Shift to the other leg. Repeat.
Stand straight with your legs wide apart.
Point your right foot outward. Align the center of your right heel with the center of left foot’s arch.
Bend your body to the right from the hips, while bringing your right hand down to your right foot and left hand pointing upwards. Keep both arms in straight line.
Rest your hand on the ankle or shin. Keep your head in a neutral position or turn it to the left.
Bend sideways, and not backward or forward. Count to 30.
Slowly straighten up. Repeat with the other side.
Keep your dosha in mind and practice every day for a few minutes to achieve balanced doshas and enhanced sattva. However, practice under the guidance of a trained professional to avoid injuries.
