Ayurvedic body types, or doshas
The basic principles of Ayurveda deal with the natural way of living a healthy life. Every human being is a unique combination of the five elements – earth, water, fire, air and space, making up the three vital forces of life –“Vata” representing ether and air, “Pita” combining fire and water, and “Kapha” meaning water and earth. The perfect balance of these vital forces results in true health - the co-ordination of mind, body and soul.

What is Ayurveda?
Ayurveda, which literally means ‘The Science of Life’ from the Sanskrit word “AYUR” which means ‘life’ and “VEDA” which means ‘science’ is one of the oldest medicinal practices in the whole world. Dating back thousands of years, this section of medicine was developed in India and later, it spread through many of the neighbouring countries. The fundamental principle of Ayurveda depends on the derivations of nature and the maintenance of balance within the body. According to its basic foundations, balance is the supreme state of existence and suppressing natural urges is deemed unnatural and unhealthy.
