Weekend Workshop: Yoga for Vata Dosha with Andrea Frazer

Yoga for Vata Dosha

with Andrea Frazer

THIS Sunday, Feb. 10th
2:30 – 4pm


The science of Ayurveda ( the science of life ) has been widely
practiced in India for more than 5,000 years. It offers us a profound
understanding of our bodies, personalities and relationships. This
science states that each human being is born with a certain unique
individual balance of the five elements: ether, air, fire, water and
earth. In each manifested form, including the human being, the five
basic elements combine into three categories called doshas.

The three doshas of Ayruveda are vata, pitta and kapha.
When balanced , the doshas maintain a healthy physiological and
psychological condition; and when imbalanced, they contribute to the
process of physical, mental and /or emotional dis-ease. Balancing out
the doshas facilitates human understanding, compassion and love
and promotes a blissful state of well being.

Vata, which literally means wind, is the primary dosha or
biological force. It is primarily ether in substance and air in motion,
governing sensory, emotional and mental harmony balance, and
promoting mental adaptability and comprehension. Vata endows us
with positive traits of creativity, enthusiasm, speed and agility and
responsiveness that allows us to achieve our goals in life.

The colder months tend to cause an imbalance of vata in all the
doshas. Though this 90 minute session we will pacify the vata with a
peaceful, warming practice specifically designed to calm, balance and

Workshop will be mostly asana with discussion to follow.
