For pitta people, it is highly recommended to practice meditation, yoga and breathing exercises. For competitive and driven pittas, meditation is a great tool to slow down, take a break and calm the mind. Cooling breathing exercises such as shitali, or left nostril breathing, sooth the hotness of pitta dosha. Although pittas might be drawn to Ashtanga, Power or Hot yoga, they should practice these types in moderation and focus on calming and cooling yoga types, such as Restorative or Yin yoga. Recommended yoga poses include forward bends and twists as these tend to refresh and rejuvenate the lymphatic system and release tension and heat from the body. Calming and cooling physical activities, such as walks in the nature and swimming, are recommended as well.
For pittas, it is important to eat regularly, spend time in the nature and keep their lives in balance. Daily massages using cooling oils are beneficial as well. Pittas should surround themselves with sweet and cooling aromas such as lavender, jasmine or chamomile.
