Are you primarily Vata dosha?
Everyone has all five elements, but Vata has a predominance of space or air, making them free-thinking, free-floating, free-flying, air-bending avatars. Always moving, they keep us on our toes. Life is never boring with a well nourished Vata.
Curious, creative, communicative, our Vatas inspire, innovate, enliven. A Vata person might be inventive, academic, artistic or spiritual. With a lighter frame and an active mind, they can seem like the wind, which means they benefit from grounding practices and warm friendships.
To be Vatalicious:
• Give yourself a daily morning oil massage. Sesame oil is best for Vata dosha
• Include healthy fats (ghee!) in your diet
• Enjoy warm cooked meals at regular times each day
• Sip warm liquids throughout the day, especially ginger lemon tea, cumin-corinader-fennel tea, or spice tea
• Seduce sleep: soak in a lavender epsom salt bath and get to bed early
• Give yourself gentle kindnesses all the time
• Take deep breaths, breathing into your feet as if they could grow roots
• Forward bends are calming. Drop forward any time anxiety rises.
• Remind yourself every day that you are perfect, whole and complete exactly as you are. In fact, you are the clear, spacious sky, the uplifting winds of life, the pollinators, seed bearers, winged generators of beauty, the song of creation in perpetual adoration of existence itself.
If you are Vata, you are the gift of life seeking its highest expression and inviting us all along. Thank you for serving life, its generative and regenerative powers, as you do.
