Vata is composed of air + space, regulating the principle of movement. Vata controls chewing, nerve impulses, breathing, muscle movements, urination, menstruation, and bowel movements.



Everyone has vata dosha, but some indivuduals will have more of it. Vata individuals are generally creative, free spirited, energetic and fun. Vata is associated with the season of autumn, so if you are a vata dominant person, you’ll want to make sure to keep your vata in balance (everyone will but especially those who already have a lot of vata energy).

Questions to ask yourself:

  1. Do I have a hard time falling asleep at night?

  2. Is it hard to quiet my mind?

  3. Meditation.. I wish!

  4. Is your skin dry, rough and thin?

  5. Is it hard for you to gain weight?

If you answered yes to a few of these, you might be dominantly vata!
