Exercise for your body needs not your ego’s desires
Yoga stretching and some aerobic exercise are valuable for all body types, but the amount and intensity of your exercise should be based upon your constitution. Kaphas’ can do the most strenuous exercise, Pitas can handle a moderate amount, and Vatas’ require the gentlest exercise. Even though fast moving Vatas’ and competitive Pitas are attracted to active sports – like increases like. The Vatas’ will be further unsettled and all over the place and the Pitas’ heat will increase. Quieter exercises such as walking and yoga stretching are better for both these types. They should leave jogging, fast bicycling, aerobic dancing and fast walking to Kapha types. Kaphas’ are the most reluctant exercisers, preferring to do little or nothing, but it is important for them, or they will tend to put on weight and feel emotionally heavy and dull. The Kaphas’ favourite toy can be the remote control as they sitting in the comfy pyjamas and they gain more Kapha symptoms.
