How can Ayurveda help you embrace the Vata stage of life and look and feel younger?

Updated: Apr 19

Dosha means that which darkens, that which accelerates aging. When we restore balance to the vata, pitta, and kapha dosha, we are slowing down the aging process at the root cause. We can consider Ayurveda, the knowledge of life, the original holistic, anti-aging system.

Vata Stage of Life: Look and Feel Younger with Ayurveda


As we age, there are a handful of health concerns that seem to get more pronounced. Wrinkles, lack of energy, and dry skin are just a few of the issues that can leave us feeling less confident about ourselves than ever before.

But what if you could have more confidence and enjoy life more than ever before? Is that even possible? Absolutely!


For starters, it’s best to figure out some of the causes of aging and plan your preventative (and reparative) measures for them. Oftentimes, the biggest factors of aging include poor digestion (due to not knowing how to eat correctly), the presence of toxins (also known as ama) in the body and mind, and an overall lack of wellbeing. The good news is, there are many ways to fight wrinkles and one of the best ways is by using the principles of Ayurveda.


A 5,000-year-old form of natural medicine that originated in India, Ayurveda's principles include tapping into your mind-body connection for remedying aging. It's based on your dosha or your body type which can help you specifically identify what your body needs in order to age gracefully.

Let's take a closer look at how Ayurveda can help you in your journey to anti-aging.


Ayurvedic Anti-Aging Tip One: Use Food as Medicine

The choices you make about what you eat will determine your health and ultimately, your quality of life. Most people don’t know what it means to be healthy — not just outwardly, but inwardly too.

Food should be used as fuel for energy, to give us not only the body we desire, but also provide optimal wellbeing, immune support, and a balanced state of mind.


Contrary to what you might find online, including fad diets or recommendations by self-proclaimed nutrition experts, the reality is what you eat should be customized to you — and you alone.


Your constitution is unique, as such the way you feed your body should be too. By tailoring your lifestyle to your specific needs, you’ll feel more energized, healthy, and happy throughout every stage of life.

Ayurvedic Anti-Aging Tip Two: Practice Ayurvedic Massage

Known as Abhyanga, Ayurvedic self-massage is a complete oil treatment for your body that rejuvenates and supports healthy muscles, nerves, ligaments, hormones, glands, organs, blood, and skin. As such, it has powerful anti-aging benefits when practiced regularly.


Here’s how Abhyanga help with anti-aging:

  1. It stimulates healthy elimination - the warm oil and circular strokes help activate all functions of the body. As such, your body can eliminate toxins and waste with more efficiency and ease, thereby improving your overall wellbeing and appearance.

  2. It brings in the moisturizing quality of the oils, and it delivers herbs directly through the largest organ of digestion—your skin.

Ayurvedic Anti-Aging Tip Three: Meditate Regularly

Stress is one of the biggest contributors to aging. When we feel chronically stressed, the cortisol levels in our body increase, and as such our skin may become inflamed, red, dry, or irritated leading to wrinkles and a loss in elasticity.

The simple act of meditating regularly can help you quickly calm an overactive mind, reduce stress and boost your mood. This will keep your skin happy and healthy while allowing your mind to relax.


Use our simple two-step program to reduce stress and increase vitality.

1. Make daily use of our popular and free guided practices as part of your Ayurvedic morning and evenng routines.

Saumya Ayurveda's 3 steps for transforming your daily life with image of a woman meditating by a lake

There is a saying, "The mind is more in the body, than the body is in the mind." The Saumya 3 step meditation process shifts us from fight-flight-freeze mode, to rest-restore-relax mode. Give it a try for forty days and observe the changes. The more grounded and relaxed we are, the smoother life flows.


"The breath is the connection between the mind and body, so by training the breath, we become calm, focused, and grounded, we slow down the aging process by decreasing stress. These practices are so simple and easy to have as part of our daily life. We actually feel and look younger."

- Veena, Saumya Ayurveda


1. Learn Diaphragmatic Breathing and Change Your Life. When we re-learn to breath diaphragmatically, we move from the flight-fight-freeze mode, to rest, restore, relaxation mode from where we want and need to live.


2. Daily Guided Practices: 11 minutes in the morning and in the evening, as anchors of your daily Ayurveda routine.



"Choose a couple of practices from the routines that provide you with the greatest support. Perform them while applying our two minute meditation technique and your mundane tasks, just transformed into a mellifluous meditation. This is meditation applied to daily life." - Veena, Saumya Ayurveda


"Veena was able to help me regain my energy in just a few months and I’m feeling like my “young” self again! I love the food plan she designed for me, and all the supporting practices (am/pm routines, breathing techniques, herbs, and spice mixes) are so enjoyable to incorporate into my day. I highly recommend Saumya Ayurveda if you want to feel better and have more vitality.”

“Veena has helped me so much! I had been struggling with fatigue for many years. I tried many things, read lots of books, advice, etc. Nothing worked, or very slight positive change over the years, but I was still struggling with the everyday. Then a couple months with Veena, I was stunned at how Ayurveda and her customized approach worked! Not only did the fatigue go away, but I actually have renewed energy and feel so physically and mentally energetic! I am so grateful. I feel like I got living my life back.”

--Michelle Cheuk, USA
