A close study of the doshas can help in understanding a person’s strengths and weaknesses along with recognizing and correcting imbalances.

Vata, in particular, consists of the elements air and ether and symbolizes the energy of movement. From the flow of the breath, pulsation of the heart to tissue movements, cellular mobility as well as communication throughout the mind and the nervous system, Vatadosha manages all movements. When imbalanced, this dosha can cause anxiety, fear, and loneliness along with causing abnormal movements such as muscle spasms and tremors.

People with a prevalence of Vata dosha are agile and usually thin. When this dosha is imbalanced, it leads to hypertension, constipation, weight loss, weakness, arthritis, and digestive challenges.

In Ayurveda, Vata dosha is considered the leader of the three doshas and Pitta and Kapha doshas cannot move without it. Hence, it becomes very important to keep Vata in a good balance. At this wonderful retreat, the participants will learn to properly balance Vata dosha through herbal, dietary, and lifestyle changes which include teas, yoga, treatment, and organic and delicious food.

Slow down, meditate, eat healthily and take proper rest at this retreat to ground Vata and not get carried away into the ethers.
