VataAir & Space Vata Dosha individuals tend to have a smaller body frame and are governed by movement (think of air and space creating wind and wind blowing through your body). This generally makes them feel cold, dry and their mind moves from one idea to the next. Vata types are always on the go, enthusiastic and active. This is the balanced state. When the state becomes imbalanced, the excess wind creates very specific mind and body symptoms.
