Udana vayu | उदान वायु

One of the five subtypes of vata; that aspect of vata that resides primarily between the diaphragm and throat and governs upward movement in the body; functionally, it is responsible for speech, expression, exhalation, and the movement of the diaphragm and intercostal muscles; udana vayu is also related to memory, creativity, and the maintenance of normal skin colour and complexion.
