Discovering Ayurveda

I just discovered the whole world of Ayurveda and I am quite intrigued! The cornerstone of Ayurvedic healing is the concept of the 'dosha', a Sanskrit word that refers to your mind-body constitution. Everyone is a unique blend of the three doshas - kapha, vata, and pitta - with one or two more dominant from birth. Turns out I am a pitta - you can find out which one you are by taking the quiz at There is also a 6 week mini e-course you take for FREE at this website. It will teach you all about the Ayurvedic practices.....I signed up for that and will let you know how it turns out.

Ayurveda is quite interesting - I studied it when I took my yoga teacher training course. I love how comprehensive it is and the emphasis placed on balance, especially in regard to diet and the six tastes. Good luck with your journey!

I too am a fellow pitta. ;-)
