It is quite rare that Vata, Pitta, and Kapha are equally pronounced in a human being, a state that is also called the TriDosha. When this is the case, a natural balance is present that is the foundation of health, fitness, and well-being par excellence.

The individual constitution of a person is derived from the relationship of the three Doshas: Vata, Pitta, and Kapha. Because this innate constitutional type predetermines how we are doing physically, mentally, and emotionally, it is of the utmost importance in Ayurveda medicine.

The word vata means to blow or move like the wind.Consisting of the elements air and ether, it is the principle force of motion in the body and mind.

Vata constitutes vitality and governs all movement processes at a micro-cellular and macroscopic level – from the blinking of your eyelids to the movements of your muscles. This form of energy is also responsible for circulation, respiration and the nervous system. Vata is the king of the doshas.

Pitta contains the properties of the fire and water element, but the former is more pronounced. Thus, Pitta regulates all metabolic processes in the body as well as body temperature and our hormonal balance. Hunger, thirst, and even intelligence are associated with Pitta.

Kapha contains the properties the earth and water elements. Therefore, Kapha unites properties such as heavy, slow, and steady, but also soft, dense, tough, and cold. In the body, Kapha is responsible for solidity and all structures as well as for the right amount of body fluids.
