Do you know your body type?
In Ayurveda (sister science of yoga), there are three distinct Doshas, also known as “The Inherent Intelligence of the Body”, they are our natural constitution or individual “make-up“. The three Doshas are: Vata, Pitta and Kapha.
Ayurveda science teach us that everything is made up of 5 elements (ether, air, fire, water and earth). The combination of elements create our constitution becomes our Doshas.
This holistic approach in wellness support the implementation of natural healing with key factors to balance life force. Good nutrition and daily routine (Dinacharya) or rituals are key factors to wholeness and longevity.
What is your Dosha?
Vata spends energy. Pitta manages it. Kapha stores it.
Your body type affect your physical constitution, psychology and way of thinking. Each body type tends to get imbalanced in unique ways. Once you know your Dosha, start making small changes that will enhance your lifestyle and quality of life.
