Ayurveda: Vata Dosha


Vata controls movement in the body and activities of the nervous system. Vata impacts the other doshas.

Qualities of Vata: Cold, light, dry, irregular, rough, moving, quick, changeable

A Vata’s personality enjoys movement and change. When in balance the body will be thin and the mind will be creative and energetic.

Physical Characteristics: Vatas typically are thin, cold hands and feet, and dry skin. They are sensitive and light sleepers. Their energy and fatigue comes in bursts. When a Vata becomes imbalanced the body may undergo weakness, constipation, weight loss, arthritis, and digestive problems.

Emotional Characteristics: Vatas enjoy excitement and new experiences. They have a quick temper but forgive quickly, too. When Vatas are in balance, they are willing to compromise and conversing too. A Vata will experience insomnia and worry when not in balance. Vatas tend to blame themselves when feeling stressed.
