Vata represents the biological elements of air and space. It has the qualities of dry, cold, light, quick, erratic, rough, unstable and moving. Vata governs all movement in the mind and body. It controls blood flow, elimination of wastes, breathing, and movement of thoughts across the mind. Vata governs the other two doshas (pitta and kapha) and so it’s very important to keep Vata in good balance to ensure the other two doshas are not imbalanced.
