It is important to keep a balanced prana vata. If the prana vata becomes out of balance, all other functions that are governed by the vata dosha may be affected. The imbalance could cause sleep issues, stress, skin problems and weak immunity. It is closely connected to the root chakra, which is responsible for grounding, and bringing a sense of wholeness and happiness.
Prana vata is also responsible for the processes of the mind. Disturbances of prana vata can create stress and anxiety. To keep prana vata in balance, regular practice of meditation, tai chi and slower forms of yoga, such as Hatha or Yin yoga, are recommended.
