Yak is a short-legged and long-haired ox-like animal found in the Himalayas. The mammal can run fast but only for short distances. The reason behind the depiction of a yak with Sri Vayuvega Yogini is that she moves at the speed of wind. The animal is found in the Himalayas, which is the abode of Shiva. Thus she serves Shiva riding on the yak.
