Yoga to Balance Vata
Ground and stabilize yourself and call back the fragmented parts of yourself with this short practice designed to calm and balance vata dosha, the wind element. Susie begins by having you feel the support of the earth as you lie face up. She then moves on to gentle floor work and postures including downward dog, plank, and extended child’s pose as well as a flowing standing sequence linking chair pose, forward bend, and arm swings that gather energy and center it at the chest. The session ends with grounding through the feet.
