What is a Dosha?
According to Ayurveda, we each have a unique combination of three energies that result in our specific mental and physical characteristics. These energies are called doshas. Most of us have one or two dominant doshas and one secondary dosha.
Knowing the proportions of these energies is a great way to understand the clues our mind and body give us and use them to make adjustments that will compliment our well-being.
What are the Doshas?
Vata Dosha – The impulse energy that controls bodily functions associated with motion. Ex: Breathing, blood circulation, and blinking.
Pitta Dosha – The transforming energy that controls the body’s metabolic systems. Ex: Digestion, nutrition, and body temperature.
Kapha Dosha – The body fluid energy that controls growth. Ex: Skin moisture, lubrication and mucus production.
