The word, Ayurveda, translates to ‘the science of life’. It’s a holistic science over 5,000 years old that contains a profound body of knowledge used to understand ourselves within the laws of nature.
According to Ayurveda, each individual and all of nature is made up of a certain combination of the five fundamental elements: Space, Air, Fire, Water and Earth. These elements uniquely design each one of us, creating a distinct blueprint known as our Dosha.
Knowing your Dosha will help you determine lifestyle choices and the nutritional needs that will benefit you most on the quest to create optimal wellness and beauty.
There are 3 main Doshas: Vata, Pitta and Kapha. You can take a simple quiz online or consult an ayurvedic practitioner to unveil your Dosha.
