Ali guides us in a flow sequence designed to balance vata energy in the body. We move through a series of grounding postures including warrior poses, wide stances, and squatting postures to feel stable and sturdy. While this sequence can be practiced at any time during the day, it is specifically great for mornings when you may be feeling a bit spacey and want to invite in grounded energy.
Ali has created a Vata playlist on Spotify to go along with this practice.
Hi Simon! My take on sequencing Vinyasa flow for each of the Doshas is to look at it in terms of the elements. For Vata, I try to add elements of Earth, Water, and a dash of Fire to counteract all the Air and Space. For a morning practice, I focused on Water more than earth and fire, thus the squatting (second chakra opening) and (what I hope is) graceful smooth flowing shapes. Thanks for your input!
