The Vata Woman: Air + Space
The Vata dosha is made up of the elements of air and ether (‘space’).
VATA IS LIKE THE WIND. IT IS LIGHT, COOL, DRY AND MOBILE.
The Vata woman tends to have a light body, thin bones and dry skin or hair. She moves and speak quickly. When out of balance, she may lose weight, become constipated or have weak immune and nervous systems.
A Vata woman’s nature tends to be talkative, enthusiastic, creative, flexible, and energetic. When out of balance, she may become confused and overwhelmed and have difficulty with focus, decision-making and sleep, especially when stressed. Emotionally, she may feel challenged by cool emotions like worry, fear, and anxiety.
In order to bring balance to Vata, your lifestyle should emphasise the opposing qualities of warmth, heaviness (nourishment), moistness and stability. Your diet should include cooked grains (such as rice), cooked vegetables and warm milk with spices. Pungent herbs like ginger which increase internal heat and nourishing herbs like ashwagandha will bring balance and harmony to Vata.
The treatments and products in Aika’s Vata Collection are designed to deeply hydrate, smooth and nourish the skin and eliminate dryness, dehydration, roughness and dullness to avoid wrinkles and premature ageing in the Vata woman.
On a subtle mental level, our Vata Collection will calm anxiety, relax the mind and warm and energise the Prana (our vital energy force).
