To bring the vata dosha back into balance, it is recommended to go to bed earlier, eat regularly and keep the body warm. Physical activities that focus on balance and flexibility, such as yoga, dancing or tai chi are also beneficial. Yogis should add meditation, grounding and balancing asanas to their practice so that a healthy mind-body connection is re-established.
Grounding poses such as vrksasana (tree pose), tadasana (mountain pose) and Virabhadrasana (warrior pose) are ideal. Savasana (corpse pose) is soothing for vata imbalances and it is recommended to remain in it for at least 15 minutes.
Fast vinyasa movements can aggravate vata, so it is preferable to practice yoga slowly and deliberately. Restorative practices such as Yin yoga are also recommended.
