What is Vata-Dosha?
In Ayurvedic principles, Vata governs the principle of air and is the energy of movement in your body. Vata can also be seen as our life-force or in yoga terms as 'prana'. Vata is the impulse to act and react.
A Vata imbalance can have some of the following indicators:
Very dry skin, poor circulation, feeling easily anxious and afraid when under stress, muscle twitching and spasms, moving and talking quickly.

Ayurveda (Pronounced Eye-Yer-Vay-Dah) in Sanskrit means "knowledge of life." It is the art of holistic living and the oldest (5000 years old) medicine system in practice today. Ayurvedic philosophy indicates that everything in the universe is made up of 5 elements- fire, air, water, earth and space. These elements are combined under 3 "energies," known as 'Doshas' (body constitutions). The three doshas are Vata, Pitta and Kapha and represent the "subtle energy" that combines and balances the characteristics of the elements it influences. This force has to often combine and balance seemingly contrary forces such as fire and water under pitta. Vata combines air and space. While kapha brings water and earth together. The principle of balancing the body is done by first determining your Ayurvedic constitution or dosha type. When we recognize this, we can begin to create balance for ourselves in our health and lifestyle.
