Living in harmony with our natural environment is key to staying healthy and balanced.  According to Ayurveda, we are composed of the same elements that we witness in nature: Earth, Water, Fire, Air, and Ether. Each of these elements is characterized by certain qualities.  We can also witness these elements within ourselves within our body and mind. A combination of these elements create doshas, or energies of the body and mind.

What is a dosha?

The doshas, Vata, Pitta, and Kapha are the basis for understanding our mind/body type.  Just like nature, we are composed of the 5 elements and their qualities. Vata is characterized by the elements of air & ether, Pitta by fire & water, and Kapha by earth & water.  The doshas determine our physical, emotional, and psychological characteristics and determine how we handle stress, make decisions, and relate to others. Understanding our predominant dosha is the basis for determining which food and lifestyle choices sustain health.
