Discover your Ayurvedic type with our free online test. Your answers determine which of the three Doshas is dominant – Vata, Pitta or Kapha. Knowing your innate constitutional type is the first step to bringing the three energies into balance, which is important for promoting health, strength and calm in your everyday life.
The ancient Ayurvedic tradition differentiates between the three Doshas (vital energies). Each of the Doshas is composed of two of the five basic Elements (Air, Ether, Fire, Water and Earth):
We are all born with a unique blend of the three energies, but one tends to be stronger than the others due to factors such as our parents’ constitutions or our embryonic development. Sometimes our individual Dosha composition is thrown out of kilter, perhaps as a result of stress, poor diet or an unhealthy lifestyle. If you know your constitutional type, you can implement simple measures to counteract an imbalance and reharmonise the Doshas.
To determine your Dosha type, simply answer the questions in the Ayurveda test. You may choose multiple answers. The results at the bottom of the page offer information and tell you what you need to do to achieve balance.
