About Your Dosha

Vata- composed of the elements air and space, it's qualities are cold, dry, and dark.  Vatas are often on the skinny side, with long limbs and knobby joints that tend to pop and crack.  They are usually very intelligent theoretical thinkers.  Vatas don't do well in cold environments and need warm moist nurturing food.  They tend to have dry skin and hair.  Massage oils should have a heating moisturizing nature.  They should self oil every day.  

Kapha- composed of earth and water, it's qualities are wet, phlegmatic, pale and lethargic Kaphas are often heavy in nature, but can have very athletic figures if they work on it. They need lots of stimulation and exercise to shock them out of their lethargy.  Being cold and damp in nature, they do better in warm dry environments and need heating dry food.  Massage oils should be dry and heating in nature, and they should self oil (or get oiled) about once a week.  

Pitta- composed of fire and water is hot, oily, and bright. Pttias are often of medium build, fair haired (often with early balding and greying) and bright eyed.  Having a hot temper and a fiery nature, they do better in cool calming environments.  They are very oily in nature, and need foods that are not too spicy or heating, even perhaps raw foods if their digestion is still good.  Pittas need oils with a cooling nature that are not too heavy, and should self oil about 3 times a week.
