The traditional healing system of India, Ayurveda has an over 6000 year history of effectively bringing into balance the body, mind, and soul. It is founded upon the unchanging, universal principles of the natural world. As the science of life, Ayurveda goes well beyond the treatment of disease, to guide us in living life fully and achieving our potential.
At the core of Ayurvedic philosophy is the concept of the three doshas, the vital energies that make up our physical constitution and are evident all around us.
Knowing your doshic constitution provides you with an understanding of your basic physical and psychological nature, and helps you tailor a personal diet and lifestyle that maintains optimum health and peace of mind.
Only a qualified Ayurvedic practitioner can accurately assess the exact balance of Vata, Pitta, and Kapha energies in your physical constitution; however, it is possible to get some idea from a simple self-test.
If you’re ready to dive into how to best support your unique doshic constitution, catch a re-play from our co-founder, Briana Borten a Clinical Ayurvedic specialist, in her class on the best type of massage for your doshic type.
