In Ayurveda, the human body is a biological mélange of the five elements: Ether, Air, Fire, Water, and Earth. Prana, the life force, manifests as different Vata organisations in the body and represents the combination of Ether and Air. We are going to analyse the specific structural locations of these five subtypes of Vata at a physiological, biochemical and anatomical level and discuss the practical and therapeutic values in addressing imbalances of Vata dosha at different levels of individuals and their practices.
