Posture (Body Posture) - View of Ayurveda


Posture, or posture, is the way an individual holds their body while standing, sitting or moving. In Ayurveda, posture is seen not only as a physical aspect of health, but also as a reflection of the internal balance and harmony of body and mind.

Importance of Posture in Ayurveda

  • Energy Balance: Correct posture supports the correct flow of Prana (life energy) in the body, which is essential for maintaining vitality and health.
  • Balance of Doshas: Posture affects the balance of the three basic doshas (Vata, Pitta, Kapha) in Ayurveda. For example, a hunched posture may indicate excessive Vata dosha, while an upright and stable posture may indicate good balance and harmony of the doshas.
  • Prevention of Health Problems: Correct posture helps prevent musculoskeletal problems, such as back and joint pain, which are often associated with a Vata imbalance.
