One of the foundation concepts of Ayurveda is the Theory of the Three Doshas of Vata, Pitta and Kapha.
These three energies or forces can be observed in the natural world, for example, in the seasons and the different times of the day.
Ayurveda also looks at human beings through the lens of these three doshas which govern bodily functions, one's body type and even one's personality.
Take a look at the attached three pie charts. Do you recognise certain personality traits that either you (or someone you know) exhibit? Which dosha do they corrspond to? Ayurveda can be an effective way to better understand ourself and other people, too. It's fascinating, isn't it?
