Vata, Pitta and Kapha, known collectively as the doshas, are the most fundamental concepts of ayurveda. Each of us is made up of a unique ratio of all three of the doshas, known as our prakriti, or constitution.

Understanding your dominant dosha type offers insight into your inherent strengths and qualities, as well as areas of greater challenge. It is an opportunity to create dietary and lifestyle practices that will optimise your health and wellbeing.

When you are going through this dosha quiz, be mindful not to tweak any answers in order to fit into a certain category. Remember that there are no ‘good’ or ‘bad’ doshas and we all have all three of them to a greater or lesser extent. Follow your instincts rather than overanalyzing each of the options.
