My Constitution (Dosha)


Each of us is a unique combination of three constitutions: Vata, Pitta and Kapha.

Vata is the essence of wind, air, and movement; irregular, dry & cold.

Pitta is the essence of fire and sun, metabolism & digestion, acidity, hot & oily.

Kapha is the essence of water and earth; grounding & stability, heavy, oily & cold.

The following short questionnaire will help you understand your own genetic constitution called Dosha in Sanskrit.
