What is your mind/body constitution?
[ CLICK ON CHART TO ENLARGE ]
Time to figure out your dosha! You can do this test above or try the online quiz at What's Your Dosha, Baby? For an indepth look at the doshas, go to the AyurBalance website.
Keeping score on paper, read through the characteristics listed in the chart, and pick one characteristic from each column per row. Make your way down the rows and tally up all your Vata, Pitta and Kapha characteristics. Whichever scores highest is your predominant dosha, the one you need to balance, through food, activity, breathing and meditation.
If out of the 30 points you have 2 doshas that are high (ie. 15 Vata, 11 Pitta, 4 Kapha), then you have 2 predominant doshas (ie. you are Vata-Pitta) and should keep both in mind but work more on the highest one (ie. Vata). If one dosha way outscores the other, you are purely that dosha.
Have fun and post a comment if you have any questions! If you figure out your dosha then a lot of the future posts will make more sense and be more rewarding!!
