What are doshas?
How are they connected with yoga practice?
What is vata?
The doshas are attributes present in every persons constitution.
Understanding the three doshas can assist our health and wellbeing.
Vata is the dosha associated with lightness, dryness, air, movement. To balance the vata dosha we require nourishment and regularity. This can be challenging in the fast pace of modern life that increasingly operates in a state of excess vata.
When vata is unbalanced we may have troubling grounding ourselves, feeling steady and can be prone to negative emotions and thoughts that drive the mind. Our health can become compromised.
This workshop will:
- identify the attributes of vata dosha in your body and the ways in which it expresses.
- give tools to assist balancing vata – through appropriate lifestyle (vihara), right food (ahara) and yoga.
- use the wisdom of Ayurveda (the sister science of Yoga) and the ancient Yoga Sutras of Patanjali to provide solutions to vata imbalance.
- nourish you with an an asana and pranayama based practice designed to balance vata and leave you restored and grounded
