The science of Ayurveda hold that every part of our mind and body is governed by the doshas, the bioenergetic forces that sustain life. The three Doshas or body constitutions are Kapha, Pitta and Vata.
Kapha: Within the Kapha dosha there is a predominance of the water and earth elements. Like these elements Kapha tends to be cool, moist, stable and heavy. In the body these qualities manifest as dense, heavy bones, lustrous, supple skin, low metabolism, large eyes, short necks, bushy eyebrows, round, soft faces and large stocky frames.
Pitta: The Pitta dosha is said to be made up of the fire and water elements. Fire is more predominant and those people with a predominant Pitta nature have many of the qualities of fire within them. Pitta tends to be hot, light, a little moist, un-stable, sharp and penetrating. It is also somewhat volatile and oily. The oily nature of Pitta is related to the secondary component of water. These people tend to be of medium build with moderate eye brows, medium length necks, deep-set eyes and moderate skin thickness.
Vata: The Vata dosha is said to be made up of the air and ether elements. Air is the more predominant quality with Ether being secondary. Vata tends to be cold, light, dry and mobile. People of Vata nature tends to “flighty” and flow much like the wind. People of Vata nature tend to have long, oval faces, long, narrow bones, small eyes, thin skin, thin eyebrows and long necks.
