So, do you know what your body type (constitution) is? You may have heard about it from a friend who is a yoga instructor or from someone who studies Ayurveda.
What is Ayurveda?
Ayurveda is the science of life. It is a lifestyle-based guide for creating and maintaining health in your body, mind and spirit. It was created nearly 5,000 years ago and is practiced all over the world. While I attended the Institute for Integrative Nutrition, I was able to learn from Dr. John Douillard about the Principles of Ayurveda. In fact, Ayurveda and Yoga go hand-in-hand, which you probably know.
In Ayurveda, you discover your constitution – which is a combination of vata, pitta, and kapha. Once you learn what your constitution or body type is, you can practice a lifestyle designed to balance those properties and bring harmony to your being.
Ayurveda is about creating health – prevention of disease rather than treating disease. It always looks at the body as a whole and at the connection between the mind and body when addressing health. To find out what your body’s constitution is, click the links below:
