Focused Flow Yoga for Stabilizing Vata

The video above is only a preview. To watch this and other full length classes, sign up for one of our plans.


Yoga Class Description

This Focused Flow yoga practice helps reduce the out of balance symptoms of Vata. Ayurveda, the sister science to yoga, characterizes people in to three categories of Vata, Pitta, and Kapha. You can be a combination of these tendencies or under the influence of just one. In general, when out of balance, Vata can be scattered, overwhelmed, anxious, dry, and suffer from joint pain. This online yoga practice helps ground and stabilize anxiety with mudra and pranayama (breath work) while offering a variation on our traditional flow to build strength without extra pressure on the joints. Have a blanket and block available. (40 mins.)

I love the fact that there is this diverse option to practice. I was definitely feeling scattered and my joints were hurting but this class really helped me. Thank you!

A soothing practice. I felt much calmer and focused afterward, even with these very simple, gentle asanas. I agree with my fellow reviewer though that I had to watch the screen more than usual in order to follow the instructor; now that I've done it once through, I'm sure that won't be as much an issue in the future.

Relaxing flow, but I found this teacher a bit difficult to follow without watching the screen very closely.
