Yoga for Vata Derangement

Modalities: Yoga
Yoga for Vata Derangement
with Dr. Timothy McCall

What we call stress in the modern world--marked by hectic schedules, sensory overload, constant interruptions, and minds that can't slow down--is often a manifestation of what Ayurveda would call vata derangment. When there's too much "air" in your system, such symptoms as anxiety, insomnia, restlessness, and constipation are likely to result. Long-term, an excess of vata can contribute to virtually every medical condition in the book. We'll do a strong, grounding asana practice, and then deeply relax using pranayama, and even some chanting and meditation. We'll also discuss Ayurvedic lifestyle recommendations for calming vata and keeping stress at bay. No prior knowledge of Ayurveda is necessary.
