My favorite standing #yoga #poses

Ayurvedic dosha for the lower back is Vata. Vata is made of of ether and air/ by reducing Vata- the pain can also be reduced!

1-stay warm & eat warm foods! A heating pad, warm blankets, cozy sweatshirts, rice bags!!
2-reduce intake of pungent spices, extremely pungent spices in your food, like red and green chilies & wasabi, can have a very drying effect on the body. dryness is another quality of the vata air dosha.

3- Padahastasana!! standing forward fold pose, allows vata to flow optimally throughout the body, eliminating the constriction of the energy channels.

4- Oil your body.
Lower back pain can intensify during stressful periods of life. Ayurveda teaches how stress, exertion, depletion, and tiredness all increase vata dosha, and too much accumulated buildup of vata dosha leads to early aging, in addition to pain in various parts of the body, especially the lower back.
The skin is the primary organ of vata dosha. If it gets very dry, it will crack and can even completely break apart; when oiled, it is able to sustain itself. Oiling your body with warm sesame oil before taking a warm shower works wonders!!

5- Alternate nostril breathing.
Lift your right hand up toward your nose and close your right nostril. Inhale through your left nostril and then close the left nostril with your fingers. Then open the right nostril and exhale through this side. Inhale through the right nostril and then close this nostril. Open the left nostril and exhale through the left side. Feel free to practice this cycle for as long as you need.
