The Vayus / the five pranas

These are sub-doshas of Vata and govern the movement of prana, soma, ojas and physical excrements of fluids throughout the body and external energies outside of it (ie. within the Koshas) 

We’re focussing on the sub doshas of Vata (there are a set of sub Doshas for each Dosha) because a) as a western, modern society we are mostly effected by Vata and living with Vata imbalances b) as a Yoga Teacher you will be presented with students who have Vata imbalances more so than other issues (unless you are a hot or bikram yoga teachers - which it must be understood is not traditional, Ayurvedic or recommended) and c) because it is the simplest to observe, notice and change.
