Vata is ruled by air and ether. Think pulling ideas out of thin air, spacey, waspy, deserts with big sky. 2-6 AM and PM is Vata time, a time for thinking, and processing. Fall and winter is Vata season. The dry crispy time of the year where things crumble away and the air gets cold and thin. Vata season and Vata constitution can leave us feeling really anxious, scatter brained, or stressed if we aren't mindful. It's usually the FIRST dosha to go out of balance and a great place to start if you're feeling out of sorts.
It's up to us to bring grounding and heat into the season, into our early mornings and evenings. Wake up early and go to bed early. Slow down, grab a weighted blanket, with a hot cup of ginger tea. Vata is perfect for YIN, FLOW, CHILL, and BUTT & strength classes with weights just make sure to stay grounded and not move too fast!
