Dosha Types & You

According to Ayurveda, nature’s elements—earth, water, fire, air, and ether—are present within your mind and body, too. These mind-body elements (or doshas) are: Vata (air/ether), Pitta (fire/water), and Kapha (earth/water). The three doshas influence everything from your body type to your digestion, disposition, sleep, and so much more. Knowing your dosha makes it easy to find the best foods, exercise, and lifestyle practices to support your unique needs.
