Doshas | Vata, Pitta, + Kapha

Your individual nature is mirrored in your body type which collectively is also known as dosha. The doshas reflect three main governing principles of nature:



Individuals have a unique combination of these three doshas/principles that exist within yourself. Sometimes you can be a hybrid of two different doshas in relation to your body + mind. Your dosha helps you understand what you should eat, how to exercise, when/how much to sleep, and often where you should live in order to have a balanced state of being. 


When you're aware of your dosha, you have an opportunity to have internal harmony. This is one of the central ideas in Ayurveda, one of the world's oldest holistic healing practices, and it will help you with both daily + seasonal routines that gift maximal health, mental clarity, + longevity.
