Yoga for the Doshas

Yoga is good for everyone; it benefits us both mentally and physically.  I've been working on a DVD called “DoshaYoga" which will be out later this year.  While doing research for this project, I found that there are certain poses which are recommended for each of the doshas.
-Vatas do well with poses (also called asanas) that are grounding and calming:  Sun salutation, Lotus, Lion, Tree, and Triangle are examples.
-Pittas benefit from poses that are cooling and relaxing.  For example: Moon salutation, Half Moon, Boot, Fish, Bow, and Tortoise.
-Kaphas do best with asanas that are energizing and releasing: Downward Dog, Upward Dog, Handstand, Shoulder Stand, Plow, and Camel.
