According to Ayurveda, our physical and mental traits result from a combination of three distinct body-mind energies (doshas). One or two doshas predominate in most people's personalities. The remaining one is less significant. The terms Vata, Pitta, and Kapha identify as the three doshas.

We may optimize our mental, physical, and spiritual health by learning our unique body-mind nature (Prakriti) via the Ayurvedic Doshas. Although most persons exhibit traits from multiple doshas, one will often predominate.


Mark Vata, Pitta, and Kapha with a single point each. The final tally will reveal your body's predominant dosha and unique body type.
