Making Vata-friendly lifestyle changes

I accidentally stumbled upon the concept of doshas about 3 years back. I had just quit my job and embarked on a sabbatical without knowing for sure what type of work I wanted to do next. My stressful job had left me suffering from mild adrenal fatigue, so I was looking for unconventional ways to “repair” and find myself. During my literature research, I came across doshas and the Ayurvedic approach to regulating imbalances. The quiz I took revealed that my dominant dosha, Vata, was out of balance. I gathered as much information as possible about ways to pacify this dosha and began making small and gradual adjustments to my diet and lifestyle. Over the next year or so, most of the extreme aspects of the imbalance were remedied with the help of diet, acupuncture (I saw a TCM practitioner for a few months), Chinese herbs, exercise and, probably most importantly, lower stress levels. Vata, however, remains my dominant dosha, so I’ve been focusing on developing a sustainable Vata-friendly lifestyle in order to prevent imbalances.

 

Food was the easiest aspect to tackle. A Vata pacifying diet should comprise 55% grains, 20% of vegetables, 15% fats, dairy, and nuts, and 10% pulses. Among those, foods that have an inherently sweet, sour or salty taste and a warm, liquid, oily or heavy quality should be favoured, while pungent, bitter or astringent foods should be avoided, as they to increase Vata. So, for instance, I’ve increased my consumption of carrots, beetroot, sweet potatoes and okra, and reduced intake of broccoli, kale, and cauliflower. All food should be consumed warm and preferably in soupy format, while drinks should be consumed hot. For years my breakfast had consisted of uncooked oats with yoghurt and nuts, consumed at room temperature. To create a Vata-friendly version, I switched to oats cooked in dairy milk or almond milk with berries, soaked and peeled nuts and a pinch of cinnamon, eaten warm. I’ve reduced my sushi and sashimi intake and swapped raw green salads for warm, cooked salads. Now, some of these changes were easier to cope with than others. I’d never been into ice cream, cold beverages and green salads, so avoiding them was no big deal. I do love my spicy food, however (the spicier the better), so turning down the heat was not a particularly enjoyable process. I also do not function as a proper human without my morning coffee, so that is one habit I’m sticking to, Vata or no Vata.

 

In addition to selecting Vata-pacifying foods, I also started making a conscious effort to eat my meals slowly and in a quiet environment, rather than on the go or while working. Vata individuals are prone to indigestion and bloating due to a vishani agni type of digestion. In order to stimulate agni, I try to eat fresh ginger with salt and lemon juice before my main meals, and I refrain from drinking water or other liquids for one hour following the meal.

 

As far as physical exercise is concerned, as a Vata individual, I naturally gravitate towards workouts that involve moving quickly, like barre and HIIT routines. However, in order to balance Vata, I need to include exercise routines that are calming and grounding, such as restorative yoga, tai chi, swimming or weightlifting. This is the reason why I started going to yoga classes and, even though I found the slow tempo of yoga quite painful to sit through. That is, until I found Vinyasa yoga and my craving for fast movement was satisfied. Still, while I love Vinyasa, I make a conscious effort to balance it out with slower forms of yoga and/or longer relaxation sessions in Savasana at the end of the practice. When practicing on my own, I make sure to include rooting asanas like Vriksasana and Virabhadrasana I and II, as well as forward bends (e.g. Paschimottanasana) and twists (e.g. Vakrasana). I am currently working on incorporating calming breathing exercises that balance excess Vata, like nadi shodhana (alternate nostril breathing) and bhramari (humming bird), and massaging sesame oil into my skin daily before bathing.

 

I believe that the relaxation and stomach cleansing techniques I learnt during my YTT course will help me to make further progress on my journey to a Vata-friendly lifestyle.

what is yoga to me.

Yoga, what is yoga to me? I feel that everyone uses yoga in different ways. Some people use yoga as spiritual guidance, fitness, a way to calm the mind, or even just to impress others. Some may look down upon others using it wrongly. While some may not mind and not let it bother them. Yoga is a self-practice, a practice just for you. Yoga to me is both body and mind. I use it to calm and de-stress my mind into a healthier state. I would say that I’m still just at the beginning of my yoga journey, I still have so much to learn and feel. I do yoga to train my body and be strong and feel good. I also use it for the mind, to calm the mind, see clearer, to balance myself and enjoy life more peacefully. To rid of all the unnecessary unpleasant feelings that we all struggle with. Yoga is a way of life, it’s the way to a happy life.
My future plan for yoga is to learn and improve, I want to learn everything from the asanas to meditation to the chakras to the best of my knowledge. I want to understand it and teach others.

Why I practice yoga and what I learnt during my 200 hour Yoga Teaching course

Why I practice yoga and what I learnt during my 200 hour Yoga Teaching course

In my opinion, practicing yoga is one of the best things one can do in life. Yoga is all encompassing and can be supportive in almost every situation in life. I believe yoga can help prevent physical and psychical problems and can also support the treatment of illnesses. Having worked for twelve years in a western hospital, I am not convinced about how we treat illnesses.  These days, it seems that medication is prescribed for everything. Rather than learning to move one’s body, people are consuming pills.

The number one psychical problem is stress. It has been proven that Yoga reduces perceived stress and anxiety, which in turn reduces the physical effects of stress on the body. By encouraging relaxation, yoga helps to lower the level of stress hormones such as cortisol.

The 200 hour yoga teaching course has reminded me of the simple things in life. To live more in the present moment, and to lead a more minimalistic lifestyle. I have travelled the world by bicycle, an experience which had me really living in the present. The only things to care about on a daily basis were what to eat, where to sleep and where to head next. A truly simple and relaxing life.  The experience of surviving for two years with four bags on two wheels was life changing:-)

During the past four weeks of daily yoga practice, I have also observed that my sleep has improved. I’m not sure whether it’s the result of the physical activity and mental relaxation or whether it’s the combination of three kids and an intensive yoga course 😉

Going forward, I would very much like to integrate yoga into my daily work as a physiotherapist. The knowledge I have gained will help me treat a wide variety patients for example those with neurological problems such as strokes, multiple sclerosis etc, as well as patients with back and neck pain or other chronic conditions.

Personally, I would like to strengthen my core muscles, particularly after three pregnancies. I have also cycled for over fifteen years, six of which were as a professional cyclist, so my hip flexors could also do with some lengthening 😉

Finally, I have found that yoga quietens a restless mind, and I would definately like to find more inner calm in this busy world.
