Body Type



Body Type

Each one is unique and Ayurveda defines this in style by speaking about the body types. If you know your body type and you can adapt a lifestyle suitable to it , a healthy body and mind is easy to attain.In Ayurveda, there are three basic types of energy, universal principles known as the doshas. In many ways, the doshas—vata, pitta, and kapha—are the building blocks of the material world , in physics we call them matter . All three of them can be found in everyone and everything, but in different proportion . In fact, the particular ratio of vata, pitta, and kapha within each of us has a significant influence on our individual physical, functions and emotional traits. The study of this gives guidelines for balancing our mind

Vata Type

Vata is predominantly composed of the space and air elements. From a qualitative perspective, vata is dry, light, cold, rough, mobile, subtle, and minute . It is the subtle energy of movement which is quite powerful and is therefore often associated with wind. Vata is linked to creativity and flexibility; it governs all movement—the flow of breath, the pulsation of the heart beat , all muscle contractions, tissue movements, cellular mobility and nourishment —and communication and functioning of the mind and nervous system

Pitta Dosha (Fire Energy)

Pitta is principally made up of the fire and is an amalgamation of the hot, sharp, light, liquid, oily, and subtle qualities. Pitta is related to intelligence, understanding, digestion, and transformation; it governs nutrition and metabolism, body temperature, and the light of understanding. It is a dynamic force and the aggravation of it results in acute and aggressive diseases

Kapha Dosha (Water Energy)

Kapha is composed primarily of the earth and water elements. It is heavy, slow, cool, oily, smooth, soft, dense, stable, gross, and cloudy. Kapha lends structure and solidity to all things; it provides the cohesiveness needed to maintain a particular form weather in the body or the mind . Kapha also hydrates all cells and systems, lubricates the joints, moisturizes the skin, maintains immunity and protects the tissues. Kapha is often associated with water energy, and with love , compassion and stability

The Prakriti Paradigm (Ayurvedic Constitution)

The three doshas are at the heart of the Ayurvedic concept of prakriti (constitution). This is by genetics that we inherit a unique combination of vata, pitta, and kapha within us that is unequivocally our own. According to Ayurveda, our constitutions are established at conception, cemented at birth, and remain stable throughout our lives, serving as a personal reference point for optimal health and informing who we are at the most fundamental levels.However they are influenced by our daily habits and thinking .
