Know your Body type According Ayurveda, Tridoshas: Vata, Pitta, or Kapha

Ayurveda has various definitions. It consists of components that are further defined in various ways. Therefore, it is a deep science in itself. Ayurveda defines our body as a structure composed of various elements such as air, water and fire. Each component has its importance and reason to exist in our body. Therefore, you need to balance each other and lead a happy and healthy lifestyle. A properly balanced body is considered a well-balanced body with all the elements properly configured.


The behavior of every individual is unique. The reason behind it is that every component of the human body can be different. Therefore, few people can quickly learn new tasks, while others are passive and slow. Therefore, we need to know the correct balance of components in our first home, our own body.
