An Ayurvedic Experiment in Pacifying Vata

As part  of Denver-based Axis Yoga Teacher Training Program, students learn about the 5,000 year old science of Aurvedic Medicine and are guided through a self-experiment based on its principles. This student identified an imbalnce in himself which he attributes to excess vata– the dosha responsible for cold, brittle, dry and anxious conditions. By eliminating sugar and coffee from his diet over a two-week period, this student began to open up to a more healthy and beneficial lifestyle.
