Ayurveda teaches that three basic energies, the tridoshas (Kapha, Vata and Pitta) exist in everything in the universe and influence all mental and physical processes. We are all born with a particular balance of these doshas, but often our predominant dosha overpowers us and we feel stress. The Kapha, Vata and Pitta products you'll find in our range are formulated to restore balance to the mind and body. To find out more about Ayurvedic medicine, click here.
Vata people are like the wind. Their moods change quickly, and they often move on to new pursuits before finishing old projects. Generally, imaginative, exciting, and excitable, Vatas move at a hectic pace. When balanced, Vata types are often artistic visionaries. Idealistic and spiritual, they have a strong sense of unity and are often healers and teachers. A Vata out of balance may be indecisive, unreliable, restless, overly talkative, superficial and anxious. If completely out of balance, Vata people can be fearful, secretive, depressed, mentally disturbed and even suicidal.
The Vata body may be thin due to inefficient methods of expending energy. Vatas prefer warm climates, food and drink, and may become especially moody and anxious if they miss a meal. Lacking endurance, Vatas often need time to recuperate; they thrive on healing massage and total relaxation. A regular schedule can help dispel their anxieties and promote inner harmony.
