Yoga & Pranayama Practices

Yoga and pranayama practices for pitta-kapha types highly depends on what element dominates at a specific point in time. During times of pitta dominance that shows up as acidity, gastric issues and anger, the focus must be on restoring coolness and calmness at mind-body level. Yogasanas that include heart-opening postures are great during times of pitta dominance. Pitta energy accumulates in the center of the body, hence, it is important for Pittas to work on abdominal area. During the times of kapha dominance, the body and mind may act slow and sluggish. A yogic routine designed around stimulation of chest and abdominal area helps balance pitta-kapha types. Triangle pose, balancing tree pose, warrior pose, headstand, handstand, abdominal twists such as Ardha Matsyendrasana, forward bends and heart opening postures such as Dhanurasana and Bhujangasana, Surya Namaskars, Tadasana, Uttanasana, Virabhadrasanas, Vrksasana, Ardha matsyendrasana, Apanasana, Viparita karani are quite balancing for pitta-kapha types. 

Pranayama practices support body-mind-skin considerably due to its effects on slowing, calming and grounding effects on the nervous system. Calming pranayams such as Nadi Shodhana, the alternate nostril breathing with kumbhaka (retentions) helps balance the ida and pingala nadis that act as channels for the prana flow, Bhramari, the humming bee breath that helps create calm in the nervous system with its vibratory effect, vigorous breathing practices such as Kapalbhati and Bhastrika help increase the graceful flow of prana through the body's energy channels (nadis). Ujjayi breath helps heat up the body and energizes the dull energy that kaphas hold. Depending what dominant energy rules you at a particular point in time, these pranayams can be used as a tool to get system back to balance.
