Yoga for Vata Season

Yoga is the sister science of Ayurveda. Because of this, there are many ways to tailor your yoga practice to fit your dosha needs. Some asanas are helpful for stimulating specific dosha’s in the body, and there are also asanas that help to soothe them as well. Since it’s Vata season, I thought I would share some tips on how to customize your yoga practice to help pacify Vata Dosha.

Fall Cleanse Tips.

A huge part of Ayurveda is cleansing with the seasons. Seasonal cleansing helps one to get rid of residual energy from the season past. In fall, the main focus is to cleanse Pitta from the body which shows up as heat that is left over from summer. This can result in skin imbalances, aggravation or excess acidity in the digestive tract. Cleanses play a huge role in detoxing the system, removing lymph, and resetting digestion. Cleansing is also a great way to get back to healthy habits and synch up to the rhythms of nature. The following tips are not an extensive guide to cleansing but the hope is that they will help you get the most out of your cleanse and bring ease to your experience.

While it is typically considered to be balancing for all dosha’s, this recipe is specifically great for reducing Vata.
