Best Chakra Yoga Asanas/Poses For Balancing Doshas (Vata, Pitta, Kapha)


The chakras' linked elements can be employed to help balance your Doshas.

oga for Vata Dosha


Airy Vata is balanced with grounding motions.


Vata personalities are naturally fluid, fast, adaptable, and light. These individuals are naturally flexible and like moving their bodies, but they may also have a tendency to overexert themselves, causing anxiety or tiredness. Choose slow, soothing, and grounding poses to balance the light and fast Vata types.

We can balance the space and air in Vata with yoga poses that open the root, sacral and solar plexus chakras (breathing deep into your belly and more where this chakra is located):

Pitta: Yoga to Balance



Fiery hot pittas should focus on cooling positions and soothing motions to help hot Pitta types find balance.


Pitta types benefit from doing yoga at the colder hours of the day, such as morning or dusk. Begin with a calm and relaxed demeanour, and let go of the desire to achieve the perfect stance. Avoid the temptation to check your phone or think about your social media/ to-do list while in the same room. If the thoughts do creep in, notice them but do not react.


We can balance the fiery Pitta with yoga poses that open the root, sacral and heart and throat chakra (breathing deep into your belly and more where this chakra is located):


Heart Chakra




Throat Chakra





Kapha: Yoga to Balance


Stable Kapha is balanced by rapid motions.


The Kapha Dosha is slow, steady, hefty, and substantial by nature. Physical strength and natural stamina come naturally to people with a Kapha Dosha predominance. However, individuals struggle to find motivation to exercise or move their bodies so making sure that Kaphas are doing things they enjoy is crucial!


Balancing Kapha involves yoga poses that open the solar plexus, heart and throat chakra (breathing deep into your belly and more where this chakra is located):
