Time for your crash course in Ayurveda. The first thing you need to know is that our bodies are governed by three doshas, or Ayurvedic body types: Vata, Pitta and Kapha. Everyone has all three doshas, but one is more dominant than the rest — kind of like your sun sign in astrology. That’s why your emotional reactions or tolerance for different foods might be different from your bestie’s.
Understanding your unique dosha make up and learning to balance it with key diet and lifestyle factors is the secret to being happier and healthier in body and mind. Take our dosha quiz to learn your unique mind and body type now.
