2. Avoid sugar, caffeine, carbonation, cold/raw or frozen foods when you are trying to pacify vata. Vata likes salt, sour, sweet, oily and warm. Warm soups are nice! A substancial breakfast, oatmeal, for instance is good for settling anxiety. Sweet fruits are good. Drink warm water instead of ice water.
3. Sit and come forward onto your lap. Bend at the hips so your weight is not being carrying by your back. Do child’s pose. Stand and let your upper body hang from the hips. Downward facing dog. Forward bends settle anxiety. Hold poses longer when trying to pacify vata. Flowing yoga classes are not good for vata.
