Balancing Vata Series: Yoga for Reduced Anxiety and Stress Relief

Sarah Finger

According to the science of Ayurveda, Vata dosha is the biological force of nature that relates to the element of air. When this dosha is out of balance the mind becomes easily agitated, our breath becomes short and chest-dominant, and we are prone to feelings of anxiety. This practice will help to create ease in the body, restore balance in the breath, and maintain a sense of calm in the mind so that you can move through your day free of anxiety and restlessness.
