Dosha test

Introduction: Yoga and Ayurveda, and integrated system.

Ayurveda, Yoga and Jyotish (Astrology) are sister sciences forming a complete system of healing and transformation towards healing and transcendence. When Ayurveda takes care of health and body, Yoga takes care of the mind and Astrology help you deal with Karma inherited from past lives.

Ayurveda is the knowledge of cause and effect and allows us to keep an harmonious relationship with mother Nature. Each of us is made of the five elements (Earth, Water, Fire, Air, Ether) combining to create the entire universe. To simplify, those of us who have more earth and water are called Kapha, more fire and water are called Pitta and more air and ether are called Vata, and most of us are a combination of each in various proportions. Determining your proportion or constitution (Dosha in Ayurvedic terms) is a key to design a practice that is beneficial for you.

Your practice should help you balance your dosha while your natural tendency would push you out of balance, a source of disease. Here is an opportunity to self-evaluate your dosha (caution: see yourself as you are, not as you would like to be). For each question, tick the description that fits you best. When you are finished, click the "result" button at the bottom of the page and we will send you the result by email.
