Vata, the most dynamic dosha, is responsible for movement and momentum in the body and mind. It tends to change quickly, before the other doshas and is considered the leader of the three doshas. But when out of balance, it can result in restlessness, feelings of anxiousness, hypersensitivity and even poor sleep. Sometimes it’s not just about what we put into our bodies or how we process our experience. Sometimes, it’s simply a matter of age.

As we move into the “Vata Period of Life,” Vata tends to increase naturally. This webinar, featuring Vaidya Dinesh Gyawali, will discuss what to expect as we age and Vata naturally increases. We’ll cover common imbalances during the later stages of life, how to maximize the best of Vata and how best to navigate this period of life through a natural Ayurvedic approach.

Dr. Keith Wallace

Dr. Keith Wallace received his BS in physics and his PhD in physiology from UCLA, and he conducted postgraduate research at Harvard University. He is founding president and member of the board of trustees of Maharishi University of Management (MUM) in Fairfield, Iowa, where he is Professor and Chairman of the Department of Physiology and Health.

In Ayurveda, digestion is one of the fundamental pillars of health and wellness. And there’s a good reason for this. Digestion is not only the food we eat, but it’s every experience we have. From the Ayurvedic perspective, we “digest” all our daily experiences with all five senses, and they become part of who we are. Our experiences affect our digestion, and our digestion affects our ability to perceive and react to our environment. It is a reciprocal relationship. Have you ever heard the term “gut reaction?” The “gut reaction” is a reality in Ayurveda and an important part of our lives.

Join Dr. Keith Wallace, author of Gut Crisis and Rest & Repair Diet, as he goes beyond the basics of digestion: what all do we process, what impact does it have, and how, from an Ayurvedic perspective, can we do it healthfully.
