In the yogic tradition, breath is the foundation of all life, the sustaining connection between body and spirit. A telling indicator of health and mood, breath puts us in closer touch with ourselves on every level.
According to Ayurveda, each of us possesses all three doshas, but one of these traits is usually dominant, defining many aspects of your health, your shape, and your personality. Left unchecked, your dominant dosha can cause physical or emotional imbalance. And although diet tends to get most of the attention in Ayurveda, exercise choices are a critical and often overlooked cause of physical and emotional dosha imbalance. Balancing your exercise choices according to your dosha can make a big difference in your overall health and well-being.
