In Ayurveda, individuals are considered to take form as a result of three life-giving forces. These forces are called "doshas", namely Vata, Pitta, Kapha. The doshas are themselves combination of the Five Elements, namly, Earth, Water, Fire, Air and Ether. These elements play a major role in deciding your body’s constitution, also known as Prakruti. Each dosha has characteristics that manifest in the body and mind as particular qualities. It is vital that doshas work together in harmony for the body to work to its maximum. Prakruti, is the nature of the person, it remains constant through out life, however, the state of doshas can change with changes in the environment such as climate, living conditions, emotional atmosphere, and in the foods we eat. Appropriate care to balance your doshas will bring grace to your body, light to your eyes, lustre to your skin, and joy to your heart.
